Rangers manager Mark Warburton has confirmed the Scottish club has signed Arsenal midfielder Gedion Zelalem on a loan deal.
Zelalem watched Rangers’ 1-0 win over Hibernian at the Ibrox on Sunday, and Warburton confirmed the United States youth international would join the club on a loan deal until January.
“He was watching the game today in the stand,” Warburton is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
“He will be training with us tomorrow and will be part of the squad.
“I am delighted to get hold of him. I would like to welcome him on board. He is another young, very talented player.”
The youngster is believed to be highly-rated by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, however, his chances of playing first-team football for the North London club this season were set to be limited.
While Zelalem has agreed to join the Scottish giants until January, Warbuton confirmed the deal would allow Rangers to potentially extend the youngster’s loan deal until the end of the season.
Despite being born in Germany and playing for the country’s youth teams, Zelalem became a United States citizen in 2014 and declared his interest in representing the USA.
