Rangers will complete a deal for Congolese-Finnish youngster Serge Atakayi tomorrow, according to reports in Finland.

The winger had been on trial at a number of clubs and was being chased by Leicester City, but after spending a period on trial at Rangers, the youngster has reportedly decided to opt for a spell at Ibrox,according to Ilta-Sanomat, the second biggest newspaper in the country.

The youngster, who is Congolese but holds a Finnish passport, was also being chased by Young Boys, among a host of other clubs, but it seems Rangers have won the race.

Hopefully "club needs quality centre-back, club signs 17yo winger" isn’t a further descent into late-Wengerness of Mark Warburton’s tenure at Rangers and just a sign of our ability to recruit top youngsters to boost our academy functioning well. Hopefully he’ll be a success at Ibrox, but it’s definitely one for the future.

We’ll confirm his signing here if and when it happens. To keep updated on all things Rangers, follow Got The Battle Fever On on Facebook:
