“We are extremely impressed by his qualities and he is a player that has real progression in him.

“He has a positive and determined personality and is very much looking forward to becoming a Rangers player at the end of this season.

“In the meantime we are really pleased that Nnamdi will play week in, week out until the end of the season in the Championship at Wycombe, a club he excelled at previously under Gareth Ainsworth.”

Having rejected a contract extension at Bournemouth and agreed to join Rangers there will be training compensation payable to the Cherries.
