Sky Sports News is reporting this morning that Glasgow Rangers are closing in on the signing of Manchester City youngster 20 year-old Vladimir Weiss, on a season long loan deal.
Vladimir Weiss – loan move to Rangers?
And that will be bad news for Newcastle fans, as Vladimir has been one of the loan targets of the Magpies, and it’s now looking like the club will miss out on the 13 times capped Slovakian International.
Manchester City are ready to loan out their highly-rated right winger, as he will not make City’s 25 man squad for this season.
The news is that Celtic had also been interested in Weiss, but the skillful winger is set to make the switch to rivals Rangers.
Rangers manager Walter Smith is keen to bolster his squad after having to unload a number of his stars during the summer months, because of money concerns at the club.
And Weiss is believed to be in Glasgow today to undergo a medical and have talks with Rangers, before tying up a move to the Ibrox club.
As we said, if that is indeed true, it will be bad news for Newcastle fans.
