Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left buzzing over some transfer news that has emerged on James Sands.
As per the official website of the Ibrox faithful, they have now confirmed the signing of the United States international from New York City FC on an initial loan deal for 18 months, subject to a work permit and international clearance.
The Teddy Bears also hold an exclusive option to buy him after his loan expires.
Should Rangers have signed Sands?
It is no doubt a shrewd signing by the Light Blues, as Sands can play in a number of different positions for Giovanni van Bronckhorst, adding depth across the defence and in central midfield.
He also brings with him plenty of quality, having recently helped NYCFC win the MLS Cup, and being named ‘Young Player of the Season’ for his side (Rangers).
Indeed, Sands is just 21 years of age, and so has the potential to become a top player for the Gers.
Rangers fans on Sands transfer news
These RFC supporters buzzed as the transfer news was shared on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that it is ‘superb’:
“Superb, welcome to the Gers”
“Got to love it. We sell our reserve right back for £16million and bring in a U.S.A international called Sands, for no money, with the help of ex-Celtic manager Delia. Is that moon-howling I hear? Take a bow Ross Wilson”
“What you love to see”
“Great news have a feeling this player will be very decent.”
