Ibrox Sources: Rangers have agreed deal worth £10m+ in fee & wages
Rangers have agreed the terms of a deal worth more than £10million in total for Kemar Roofe, Football Insider understands.
The Scottish giants announced yesterday that the striker, 27, has put pen to paper on a four-year deal that ties him to Ibrox until 2024.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the club will pay an initial fee of around £4.5m for Roofe that will be topped up by performance-related add-ons.
The former Leeds United star will also earn more than £20,000-a-week as well as pocket a major signing-on fee.
The deal is worth in excess of £10m across four years.
It is a major financial commitment from Rangers, who also announced the signing yesterday of a second striker in Cedric Itten as he finalised a move from Swiss side St Gallen.

The arrivals of the senior duo on the same day strongly suggest that Alfredo Morelos is on the verge of ending his three-year stay at Ibrox.
As revealed by Football Insider last week, the Colombia international is in advanced talks to join Lille in a deal worth £17million.
Morelos has flown out to Germany with the Rangers squad to prepare for Thursday’s Europa League second-leg clash against Bayer Leverkusen.
But there are fears among supporters that may turn out to be his last match for Steven Gerrard’s side.

The West Brom academy product secured a move to Belgium after a stellar 2018-19 season for Leeds in which he netted 15 goals in 34 matches.
