Rangers have signed an academy starlet from Everton.

Arian Allen has joined the Ibrox club from the Premier League outfit.

The 16-year-old striker had been with the Toffees since the age of 10, but has decided to leave in order to pursue a different path north of the border.

He's described as a dynamic player. Allen will join up with Stevie Smith's under-18s squad as they look to close out the remainder of the campaign.

Zeb Jacobs, Rangers academy director, commented on the move, detailing his delight at being able to secure such a talented young player.

“It is great for us to have Arian on board," he said. “We are all excited to start working with him and develop his potential over the coming seasons.”

Meanwhile, Sam Lammers could be heading for a £2.5 million summer switch to Twente Enschede after they failed to sign him last year when he moved to Rangers instead.

The Dutch flop is on loan at Utrecht and has helped them to a club-record 14-match unbeaten run, which included a weekend win at third-place Twente.

Twente are five points clear in third, well ahead of Utrecht in ninth place and seem set to reach Champions League qualifiers next season.

And reports in the Netherlands have indicated they will try again to land Lammers in the summer.

Twente were in for him when he was at Atalanta, but he opted to move to Rangers instead in a £3.5 million move that turned into a disaster.

The loan move to Utrecht does not include an option to buy and Twente are in a far better financial position than Utrecht to sign the 26-year-old.

Lammers was praised for his performance against Twente at the weekend.
