Rangers confirm transfer of Nnamdi Ofoborh from Bournemouth on pre-contract with midfielder first going on Wycombe loan

RANGERS have confirmed the pre-contract signing of Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh.

The 21-year-old has signed a four-year deal but will spend the rest of the season on loan at Wycombe Wanderers.

He will then move to Ibrox in the summer, with Gers due to pay a training compensation after Ofoborh rejected a new Cherries contract.

Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said: “We look forward to welcoming Nnamdi to our group in the summer. We are extremely impressed by his qualities and he is a player that has real progression in him.

“He has a positive and determined personality and is very much looking forward to becoming a Rangers player at the end of this season.

“In the meantime we are really pleased that Nnamdi will play week in week out until the end of the season in the Championship at Wycombe, a club he excelled at previously under Gareth Ainsworth.”


It comes after Gers pushed through deals to land Jack Simpson and Scott Wright for the title run-in.

The Bournemouth defender and Aberdeen attacker had signed pre-contract agreements to move to Ibrox in the summer.

But Steven Gerrard was desperate to get them on board immediately and they beat the midnight deadline to sign the pair. Both players have penned four-and-ahalf year deals which will keep them at Ibrox until the summer of 2025.

Rangers forked out £200,000 to bring in 23-year-old Wright now rather than wait another five months.

The money will be deducted from the £350,000 Aberdeen had already agreed to pay for Scotland Under-21 star Ross McCrorie.

McCrorie was initially on loan until the end of the current campaign but his move will now become permanent.

Simpson, who has been a standout for Bournemouth in the Championship this term, flew into Glasgow yesterday.

The 24-year-old completed the formalities of his switch, having already passed a medical and sorted the terms of his new contract last week.

Gerrard has been a long-time admirer of the left-sided centre-half, who was an England Under-21 international.

Simpson and Wright could both feature against St Johnstone tomorrow night as Rangers attempt to keep their unbeaten Premiership record intact.

Wright will fill the voids left by Jordan Jones’ loan move to Sunderland and Brandon Barker’s temporary switch to Oxford United.
