Promising talent given green light for Rangers move
Glasgow Rangers are reportedly wasting no time in their quest to strengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming season under Michael Beale’s leadership. Dujon Sterling is said to have passed a medical examination ahead of his summer transfer move, as per The Scottish Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old had been previously linked to Stoke City, but it seems that Rangers have snapped him up swiftly. Reports suggest that Chelsea has allowed Sterling to join Ibrox on a free transfer.
Although contractual details still remain to be finalized, Sterling’s medical was successful, paving the way for him to join the club this summer.
Ibrox News confirmed on Friday that Glasgow Rangers and Sterling have agreed to terms. The Stamford Bridge academy graduate, who can play as a left-back or right-back, is set to become part of a major rebuilding phase for the Scottish club this season. This comes after Chelsea decided against extending his contract.
The versatile defender’s arrival could be a huge boost for Beale’s side, which is looking to strengthen its squad for the 2023/24 campaign.
Dujon Sterling has been noted for his power and strength by Stoke’s Alex Neil, which suggests that he could bring confidence in defense.
Accompanying Sterling’s arrival, Rangers are also closing in on bringing in Jack Butland and Kieran Dowell on free transfers.
The club intends to make up to 10 new signings this summer, making early free transfer deals probably an astute move.
The youngster will offer stiff competition for James Tavernier as right-back if he makes the cut, and with his experience out on loan in the Football League with previous commendations from former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel in 2021, he will likely be an asset for Glasgow Rangers at a bargain price.
