Liverpool transfer news: Rangers agree on loan deal for young man from Anfield


Sheyi Ojo seems willing to lend to Rangers as the 21-year-old seeks to gain valuable first-team experience.

Last season he was loaned to the French team Reim, where he made 17 matches but scored only once.

The wing now looks set to join Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard north of the border and is expected to meet with the team when he returns to pre-season training next week.

It remains to be seen whether Kent will return to Liverpool or leave the club.

Aston Villa and Leeds have been linked to the player while the Rangers are also interested in keeping it.
