Rangers bid accepted for Hearts’ Lee Wallace


Rangers have reportedly had a bid of around £1.5 million accepted by Hearts for left back Lee Wallace, according to STV Sport. Rangers upped their offer after seeing two previous offers rejected for the defender, and this improved offer was accepted this morning.

Wallace will now travel to Glasgow to discuss personal terms with the Ibrox side. Rangers have until 11pm tonight to register players for their Champions League third qualifying round game against Malmo FF with the first leg next week.

Despite Hearts indicating a willingness to offer a new contract to the 23-year-old, it looks like Wallace will be heading along the M8 to the SPL champions.

The defender made his debut for Hearts in 2005, and has made 160 appearances for the Tynecastle side and has also win five Scotland caps.

Wallace, if he agrees to the switch, will battle with Sasa Papac for the left back berth. The Bosnian has been a stalwart for the Ibrox side since his switch in 2006 – the only surviving signing of flop Paul Le Guen. Papac recently signed a one year deal in May with the Ibrox side, but is currently on the injury list.
