Rangers striker Jermain Defoe is willing to take a significant pay cut in order to secure a permanent move to Ibrox at the end of the season, according to the Football Insider.
The website claims the 37-year-old is so keen on staying that he is willing to give up a sizeable portion of the £100,000 a week he is currently earning at parent club Bournemouth.
Defoe’s contract at the Cherries expires in June and he will be available on a free transfer in the summer, but there have been concerns about his salary demands.
The veteran forward’s willingness to make the deal happen certainly shows he is fully committed to the Gers’ cause, and it’s likely that the Light Blues will respond with a suitable contract proposal.
Defoe has shown he still can make a contribution at the highest level despite his age. The Englishman has scored an impressive 13 goals in 20 appearances for Rangers this campaign.
