Zungu set to link up with Gerrard

SA Players Abroad

Bongani Zungu will travel to Glasgow today ahead of completing an expected season-long loan deal with Scottish Premier League giants Rangers.

After Rangers secured qualification to the UEFA Europa League group stages by ousting Turkish Super Lig giants Galatasaray, Steven Gerrard's side stepped up negotiations with the Ligue 2 outfit.

Zungu's return to the Amiens squad over the past two weeks and head coach Luka Elsner's sacking after the initial instruction for him to train away from the first team brought confusion surrounding his future.

KickOff.com understands Rangers have now struck a deal with the struggling French side, who are languishing in 17th place, with Zungu refusing to sign a new contract.

Zungu will arrive in Scotland on Monday evening for a routine medical before signing a deal for a season-long loan, after which his contract will expire and available to join on a free transfer.

Turkish top-flight outfit Yeni Malatyaspor and Olympiakos both made late contact with his representatives but with personal terms already agreed for a move to the United Kingdom, Rangers have now won the race for his services.
