Rangers new deal close after indications offer accepted - Ibrox Sources
Jamie Barjonas has indicated he will accept a Rangers contract offer and is set to pen a new deal, Football Insider has learned.
The central midfielder, 20, has been in talks with the club about an extension to replace his current agreement, which expires at the end of the season.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Barjonas and his representatives have told the club he will accept an offer in a breakthrough in negotiations.
An announcement is expected in the coming weeks that will see the Rangers academy product extend his stay at the club.
The Scottish Premiership leaders 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.

Rangers have spent lots of money in recent years in buying young players rather than turning to those brought through the ranks, with the likes of Glenn Middleton and Jake Hastie notable examples.
Barjonas has made nine appearances for the Rangers senior side, with all of those coming in 2017.
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.
