Rangers are on the verge of signing Jason Cummings from Nottingham Forest on loan until the summer, according to a report.

Sky Sports claimed in their live transfer blog on Sunday [09:48pm] that Cummings, 22, will sign a deal with the Light Blues that can be made permanent at the end of the season.

It is understood that the former Hibernian forward is scheduled to undergo a medical on Monday as Graeme Murty and Mark Allen continue their revamp of the squad in the January transfer window.

Cummings will be yet another forward addition for the Glasgow giants, following Jamie Murphy’s arrival from Brighton in a loan deal which is expected to be made permanent in the summer.

Midfielder Sean Goss has also been signed on loan from QPR.

One-time Scotland international Cummings was widely reported to have arrived in Glasgow on Sunday to put the finishing touches to his move to Ibrox.

He signed for Nottingham Forest for £1million in the summer after helping Neil Lennon’s Hibernian win the Scottish Championship.

However with just four goals in 17 appearances across all competitions in England, Cummings has struggled to relive his form south of the border after he was snapped up by ex-Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

Football Insider verdict

Cummings will be a fantastic signing for Rangers, but his arrival at Ibrox may signal the end for Kenny Miller and Eduardo Herrera. Murty will have Cummings, Alfredo Morelos, Josh Windass and Jamie Murphy all viable options to play as centre-forwards in the second half of the season, so it is likely that the two more senior strikers will find it very hard to get football. Miller is out injured for a lengthy time and is expected to get a coaching role with the Gers when his playing contract ends in the summer. However Pedro Caixinha signing Herrera has been a total flop in Glasgow and should really be shifted out as soon as possible.

In other Rangers news, the Light Blues will table a formal bid for this playmaker with a triple swoop on the cards for the coming days.
