Personal terms will now be agreed with Goldson, and manager Steven Gerrard has already spoken with the 25-year-old enforcer.
The report claims he is ready to commit his future to Rangers.

The Scottish transfer window doesn’t even open until Saturday, but that hasn’t stopped Mark Allen and Steven Gerrard getting busy and lining up deals. Goldson’s deal won’t go through until the window officially opens but it looks like it’s definitely going to happen. £3.5million is a huge fee but Gerrard has obviously identified Goldson as the man to rebuild his side around, starting at the back. It would seem like a good choice. Brighton fans didn’t want to see him go and they think he can obviously still do a job in the Premier League. That’s the calibre of player that Rangers want but it’s not so easy to get them for a fee Rangers can afford, and to agree personal terms. It looks like Gerrard has pulled this one off and you can’t overestimate the influence he is having in persuading players like Goldson – in the peak of their careers – to make the move north of the border. We think this is a really significant deal.
