Rangers chairman Dave King has given the green light for Eros Grezda to be sold – as long as the club can recoup the £2million fee they paid for him.

Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that King and the board do not want the financial pain and embarrassment of another loss-losing transfer.

The club are in talks with teams in France over the sale of Grezda and are keen to let him go permanently rather than on a season-long loan.

Ligue 1 duo Dijon and Brest are among those with a strong interest in signing Grezda just 12 months after his £2million move from Croatian side Osijek.

Football Insider revealed in June that the Glasgow giants were ready to listen to offers for the Albania international this summer.

Manager Steven Gerrard has made it clear he does not see a future in his side for the winger, even though he has been capped 12 times by Albania, has three years remaining on his contract and a solid reputation across Europe.

Grezda scored just two goals – both of which came in a 7-1 hammering of Motherwell – last season among 17 appearances as he struggled to deal with the pressure of playing for Rangers.

He has slipped down the pecking order this season following the summer arrivals of Sheyi Ojo, Jordan Jones, Greg Stewart and Jake Hastie, as well as the return to fitness of Jamie Murphy.

In other Rangers news, Darren Bent has tipped ex-England mate Gerrard to sign Premier League star with SEVEN-figure valuation in late Ibrox move.
