Rangers are close to agreeing a permanent deal with loan star Steven Davis, Football Insider understands.

The Northern Ireland international, 34, re-joined the Glasgow giants in January for a second spell on a loan deal from Premier League club Southampton that expires in June.

An Ibrox has told has told Football Insider that discussions have taken place about converting the loan into a full-time transfer and all parties are confident an agreement is close.

Davis initially struggled for game time upon his Rangers return but has started to establish himself as a key man in Steven Gerrard’s midfield over the last month.

The 107-times international has made 16 appearances in his second spell, starting five of the last six league matches, including all four of the consecutive wins against Hearts (twice), Aberdeen and Motherwell.

Gerrard has utilised Davis’ passing range in a deep-lying central midfield role alongside fellow January arrival Glen Kamara and Ryan Jack, who has been pushed forward into a more advanced position.

The Belfast Telegraph report Davis is earning £12,000-a-week at Rangers and he is expected to agree a contract on similar terms this summer.
