Rangers have completed a deal to sign midfielder Mohamed Diomande from Nordsjaelland, initially on loan.

The Ibrox club will then complete a permanent transfer in the summer, with Diomande signing a contract that runs until 2028.

The 22-year-old becomes manager Philippe Clement’s second signing following the arrival of Fabio Silva, and will join his new teammates in Glasgow once his work permit is finalised.

Diomande moved to Nordsjaelland from Ghanaian football academy Right to Dream in 2020 and has been a regular in the Danish side since.

“I am very excited to join such a historic club and I’ve heard a lot of good things about the team,” Diomande told the club’s official website.

“I had a lot of great conversations with the manager who told me about his plans for the team and where I would fit in, which helped convince me that Rangers was right for me.

“I really can’t wait to get started, join up with my teammates, and run out at Ibrox for the very first time in front of the Rangers supporters.”

Rangers boss Clement added: “I am really pleased to have been able to add Mohamed to our squad, and I am excited to see what he can bring to our team.

“In our conversations and what I have seen of him as a player, I believe he will be a real asset to us, not only in what remains of this season, but in the seasons to come also.

“I look forward to welcoming him to Glasgow, and to working with him on the training pitch soon.”

The club’s director of recruitment believes Diomande can add something “extra” to the squad.

“As a recruitment department, we are very pleased to add Mohamed to our Rangers squad after a long and thorough process,” Nils Koppen said.

“After analysing data, video and live games over a long period of time, we are convinced that he will add something extra with his high level of athleticism, creative play and strong defensive work.

“I look forward seeing him play in a Rangers jersey and be a part of the amazing Rangers family.”
