Former Aberdeen midfield talent Connor Barron is on the brink of penning a four-year agreement with Rangers.

The Glasgow side are pushing to wrap up the deal for the Scotland U21 star within the coming day. Rangers have proposed a contract that would secure Barron's services until summer 2028.

Final touches to this offer are expected to be ironed out promptly, paving the way for Barron to undergo a medical soon and seal his transfer. Rangers have initiated talks with Aberdeen, indicating their intention to register the out-of-contract midfielder.

The Gers may face negotiations over a transfer sum with Aberdeen or risk settling at a tribunal. Should Barron have transferred to a team outside Scotland, Aberdeen could have claimed around £500,000 in training compensation.

The Pittodrie side will seek a higher price to "sell" to their domestic adversaries, potentially with additional clauses, unless Rangers opt for a tribunal verdict. The Dons' stance is bolstered by their offer of a substantial new contract, which Barron declined, reports the Daily Record.

Barron also had options from Italian and English sides, including Hellas Verona and clubs like Stoke City, Cardiff, Swansea, and Plymouth; however, he has chosen Rangers above them all.
