Rangers have completed the signing of Martin Skrtel from Fenerbahce, according to a Turkish report.

Turksih outlet Sporx has claimed that the player has signed a three-year-deal with a fee said to be around £3million.

They claim that Steven Gerrard was a key part of the negotiations and that Fenerbahce have agreed the fee with Rangers.

Their tweet translates as “After €3.5million bid, Skrtel has signed three-year Rangers deal”.

Football Insider verdict:

This deal certainly seems very close and if we were betting men we’d have our wages on Skrtel signing. The source is reputable but this isn’t official yet. The fee mentioned is slightly higher than was previously mentioned (£2.7million) but in the same ball park. We’d say this is a deal that’s all but done in reality, and we’d expect to get more official confirmation in the next 24-48 hours. When it happens (and it seems when now rather than if) it will be a brilliant deal for Rangers. Yes, he’s 33, but he’s still one of the most intimidating centre-backs in Europe and can definitely do a job in the Premiership for the next three years. We think it’s money well spent for a team that needs title-challenging quality now.
