Rangers could confirm £3million transfer of Ianis Hagi from Genk later todayby David Fowler
RANGERS could confirm the £3million transfer of Ianis Hagi from Genk later today.
SunSport understands the Romanian international has already agreed personal terms on a three-year deal.
Sky Sports report that the fee will be paid in instalments across three seasons.
Genk last night confirmed the 21-year-old was joining the Light Blues but Ibrox chiefs were caught cold by the announcement and claimed no written agreement is in place.
The statement on Genk's official website was removed shortly after.
It read: “Ianis Hagi definitively switches to Glasgow Rangers.
"The Scottish club has lifted the purchase option for the attacking midfielder.
“We wish Ianis the best of luck in his career.”
The 10-time capped Romania international joined Steven Gerrard's men on loan in January.
He netted three times in 12 appearances including a double in Rangers' Europa League comeback win over Braga at Ibrox.

In 2016 he won a move to Italy with Fiorentina before returning to his former club in 2018.

Meanwhile, John Kennedy has shrugged off the 'tainted title' claims of Gareth McAuley.
The Celtic No2 hit back: We choose who to listen to - and it's NOT you!
Ex-Northern Ireland stopper McAuley claimed Celtic's nine-in-a-row success was "tainted and hollow".
But Kennedy said McAuley, who only started six league games for Gers, was playing to the Ibrox gallery.
