Amad Diallo is set to join Rangers on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Scottish outfit have reached an agreement for a straight loan with Manchester United, reports Fabrizio Romano.

Amad hasn’t been in first team plans under Ralf Rangnick, managing to appear just once after returning from an injury that saw his loan move to Feyenoord collapse last summer.

The interim boss approved his switch to the reigning Scottish champions. The club believe the former Atalanta talent is one for the future. And as per The Athletic, United hope regular senior football in Scotland will help him ‘adjust to Premier League rigours’.

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst, who replaced Steven Gerrard mid-season, will enjoy the tricky winger as part of his team.

Rangers are gearing up to face Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League round of 32. The 19-year-old has some history in the competition, as his goal in the first leg had a big say in United knocking out AC Milan last season.

With Anthony Martial’s move to Sevilla already announced, the Ivorian will become the second attacker to depart Old Trafford this week. Jesse Lingard could also follow the duo out of the door if Newcastle United agree to the Red Devils’ demand for a £12m bonus if they avoid relegation.
