Swansea City were among a host of clubs interested in the Scotland under-21 international, but he is now set to sign a deal that will keep him in the blue side of Glasgow until 2028.

Once the final details are ironed out, Barron is expected to complete a medical, with Rangers contacting Aberdeen already to inform them of their plans to register the out-of-contract star.

Rangers will now have to either thrash out a transfer fee with the Dons or risk taking their chance at a tribunal.

Had Barron made the move to Swansea, or indeed anywhere outside of Scotland, Aberdeen would have been entitled to £500,000 in training compensation

Portsmouth not in for Lowe

Portsmouth will not pursue the chance to reunite with former Swansea City striker Jamal Lowe this summer.

The Blues are believed to be on the hunt for attacking reinforcements this summer as they bid to strengthen their squad ahead of their upcoming return to the Championship.

However, according to The News Lowe isn’t currently on their wish list.

Lowe is currently a free agent after running down his contract at Bournemouth, having spent last season on loan back at the Swans.

Luke Williams has seemingly ruled out another return to south Wales, indicating that Lowe's wage demands are likely to be beyond the club's capabilities in this window.

It's believed that Portsmouth's hierarchy have reached a similar conclusion, with Pompey lacking the financial clout of many of their second tier rivals.

Allen and Naughton 'like bright teenagers'

Luke Wiliams says veteran duo Kyle Naughton and Joe Allen are like “really bright teenagers” having committed their futures to the club.

Both players penned new one-year deals at the club earlier this summer, and will ofer Williams a welcome injection of experience as his side head into the new season.

“Joe and Kyle are almost unique in terms of the depth of experience they have while still playing Championship football at such a good level,” Williams told the BBC.

“The levels both those players hit at the back-end of last season were undeniable.

“I had some brilliant conversations with both of them. It’s like talking to really bright teenagers, because they have the energy of teenagers but the words that come out are like a senior player.”
