Fabio Silva has completed a loan switch to Rangers.

The Wolves forward, 21, has agreed a temporary move to Ibrox until the end of the season. He will officially join the club on Monday, January 1, so will be eligible to line-up against Kilmarnock the following day.

Silva - who joined Wolves from Porto for £35m in 2020 - previously spent time on loan at Anderlecht and PSV Eindhoven.

The attacker is most comfortable as a centre-forward but has experience playing as a second striker or off the left-hand side.

The player said: “I am very happy, when I spoke to people about Glasgow and about Rangers, everyone told me good things about the club and the history.

"I played here once with Porto in the Europa League, so I already know the warm club, the environment and the stadium, so everything is perfect.

"I am very happy to be here, and I can't wait to start training with the team.”

Silva heads to Ibrox for game time after seeing his minutes dwindle in recent months under Gary O'Neil at Molineux.

The forward has made ten appearances for Wolves this season but has been sent to Ibrox for further exposure to first-team football.

It's thought both Philippe Clement and director Nils Koppen were key in the completion of the loan switch for the Portugal under-21 international.

Koppen was previously at PSV Eindhoven when Silva joined the Eredivisie club on loan last season.

Philippe Clement added: “I am delighted we have been able to secure the signing of Fabio, he is a highly-rated striker and it is fantastic to have him joining our squad for the remainder of the season.

"He is a young player who already has some great experience in his career in both England and in Europe, and I am looking forward to working with him moving forward.”

Chief Executive, James Bisgrove said: “After speaking at length with Philippe, the Chairman and our Football board ahead of this transfer window, we are all aligned in the areas we are looking to strengthen heading into 2024.

"It is hugely positive to have been able to add to the squad so early, especially with a player of Fabio’s calibre, and we are delighted to welcome him to Rangers.”
