JERMAIN DEFOE has completed his 18-month loan deal to Rangers from Bournemouth following his medical.
The 36-year-old former England striker went through the formalities in Manchester yesterday after agreeing personal terms with the Ibrox club.
Defoe, a former international team-mate of Gers boss Steven Gerrard, is expected to join up with the squad tomorrow for their mid-season break in Tenerife.
Gers are also hopeful of completing a deal to bring Steven Davis back to Ibrox, with the Northern Ireland midfielder set for a medical after holding talks with the club.
Despite early talk of a permanent move, it is understood the Southampton player, who has six months remaining on contract with the Premier League outfit, is now more likely to join on loan.
Davis spent four years at Rangers and was part of the club’s last title-winning side in the 2010/11 season.
Gerrard has been busy in this month’s transfer window and has already fixed up Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones and Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara on pre-contracts.
