Rangers rising star Jamie Barjonas has completed a Partick Thistle medical as he finalises a loan move for the rest of the season, Football Insider can reveal.
The 20-year-old has headed to the Scottish Championship outfit two months after agreeing a new deal with the Light Blues.
Ibrox source have told Football Insider that Barjonas was training with Partick Thistle this morning and the temporary deal is set to be announced later today.
Rangers have given the green light for the central midfielder to go out on loan to get much-needed senior game time.
He has progressed through the club’s academy set-up since joining at the age of nine.
The Scotland Under-19 international coincidentally made his senior debut against Thistle in 2017 and has played nine times for the Rangers first team.
The youngster penned a fresh contract at Ibrox in October which runs until the summer of 2021.
The Scottish Premiership title chasers have high hopes about the potential of Barjonas, who they regard as a raw but highly promising talent who can make it at first-team level.
He is regularly cited by youth chief Craig Mulholland as a player who proves the club’s oft-criticised academy is producing genuine talent.
He was sent on loan to English League Two outfit Bury in the first half of the last campaign before then being farmed out to Scottish League One side Raith Rovers.
In total, he made 27 appearances last season.
