Rangers midfielder Ross McCrorie is close to agreeing a season-long loan deal to move to Portsmouth, according to reports in the Scottish media.
However, Pompey would reportedly like to include a purchase option in the loan, and it remains to be seen whether the Gers or the player would be interested in a permanent transfer.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has already hinted that McCrorie won’t play very much if he stays at Ibrox next season, with it being hoped that he could gain more first-team experience by moving on a temporary basis.
The 21-year-old is a player that Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is very keen on signing, with the English club having tracked the midfielder for a long time.
McCrorie and his agent are said to be travelling to the South coast today in order to discuss the move with the League One side.
The Scottish Under 21 international made 31 appearances for Rangers last campaign but managed just 11 starts in the league.
McCrorie’s brother Robby has also recently left the club, having moved to Queen of the South on a season-long loan.
