Rangers agree £2.5m move for young Manchester City defender: report

Rangers are set to make their 11th signing of the summer, according to reports.

Manchester City defender Kean Bryan has agreed to move to Ibrox, says the Scottish Sun.

The move, which could even be finalised today, will see Bryan sign a three-year deal worth £2.5m in wages and signing on fee.

Bryan played alongside Gers boss Steven Gerrard's cousin Anthony during a loan spell at Oldham last season and impressed, winning the club's Young Player of the Season award. He has just one year left on his current deal at the Etihad.

Ibrox Director of Football Mark Allen also knows Bryan well from his spell at City's Academy.

We told you yesterday that Gerrard was looking to the 21-year-old as his search for a final central-defensive signing of the summer proved increasingly frustrating.

Gerrard has already added Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic to his panel but, as he looked for a left-sided centre-half, his first choice options proved impossible.

The club were reported to have had a £3m bid for Millwall's Jake Cooper rejected, before Blackpool's Curtis Tilt was said to be the centre of his moving attention.
