Nottingham Forest forward Jason Cummings is undergoing a medical ahead of a loan move to Rangers, according to a report.
STV claims that Cummings, 22, arrived in Glasgow at the weekend as is undergoing tests ahead of becoming Graeme Murty’s third signing of the January transfer window after Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy.
It is understood that Forest and Rangers are still in discussions over the terms of Cummings’ loan deal as the Scottish Premiership side aim to have him recruited as one of their players in the next few days.
Cummings only signed for Nottingham Forest in the summer, leaving Hibernian in a £1million deal to join Mark Warburton’s side.
However he was made just 17 appearances in all competitions south of the border, scoring four goals in the process.
The one-time Scotland international was much more prolific last season with Hibs, netted 20 goals as Neil Lennon’s side won the Scottish Championship title.
Football Insider verdict
Cummings will be a great signing for Rangers. He and Alfredo Morelos will be a good pairing up front, if they play together. If not, the Scot will be a brilliant back-up option to the Colombian, who has shown he is prone to the odd goal drought. Cummings’ arrival may also spell the end for Eduardo Herrera and Kenny Miller. Herrera has flopped since being signed by Pedro Caixinha in the summer while Miller is out of contract in the summer and is currently sidelined with a serious hamstring injury. With Josh Windass and Murphy to hand, that should be Murty’s striker options sorted.
In other Rangers news, an emphatic decision on the Gers’ bid for another international has been made.
