RANGERS MAKE A TRANSFER COUP
Rangers have agreed to sell Danny Wilson for a fee which can go upto £5 million. The 18-year-old central defender, voted the SFA’s young player of the year last season, was pulled out of the Rangers squad that departed for a pre-season tour of Australia today to undergo a medical at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground.
The Rangers chief executive Martin Bain confirmed: “We have agreed a deal in principle with Liverpool for the transfer of Danny Wilson. Liverpool’s offer will see the club receive £2m up front with add-ons linked to games played, taking the total value of the deal to £5m.”
Liverpool have been in talks with Wilson and his representatives for several months, with the club ambassador Kenny Dalglish playing an influential role in negotiations for a player who was also a target for Tottenham Hotspur.
Wilson will join Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic as Liverpool’s new faces for next season once the transfer is completed, and provides a further illustration of the club’s intention to sign more British talent to meet Uefa’s impending regulations on homegrown players in European squads.Uncategorized
