Rangers big earning forward agrees personal terms with new club - Ibrox Sources
Rangers striker Eduardo Herrera has agreed personal terms with Mexican club Puebla FC, Football Insider has learned.
The 31-year-old was told last month that he had no future at Ibrox, where his current contract expires in the summer.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Puebla are close to completing the signing of Herrera after he negotiated the terms of a contract.
He has spent the last two years out on loan in his homeland, with a year-long spell at Necaxa ending last month.
Puebla have moved to take on Herrera’s registration and bring to an end his ill-fated two-and-a-half years on Rangers’ books.
The ambitious Liga MX club have indicated they could announce the deal later this week.

It will be a major financial boost for Rangers, who faced the prospect of continuing to pay the high-earning forward the remainder of his £20,000-a-week contract.
Rangers revealed in their most recent financial results they had spent £1.6million on paying up contracts of players for the year ending June 2019.
Herrera also cost a fee of around £1.5million when he arrived in the summer of 2017 under Pedro Caixinha.
He proved poor value for money, scoring just two goals in 24 Rangers appearances during his campaign at the club before being loaned out twice, to Santos Laguna in the first half of last season and then at Club Necaxa for the entirety of 2019.
