Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield has agreed a four-year pre-contract agreement with Rangers, according to Sky sources.
Burnley revealed on Thursday that Arfield would leave Turf Moor and the 29-year-old will join the Scottish Premiership side when his contract expires in the summer.
"Rangers asked us about Scotty Arfield and what his position was," Burnley boss Sean Dyche said. "Scotty was a boyhood Rangers fan and that one's pretty simple in its form if they want to speak to him."
Arfield has scored two goals in 19 Premier League appearances this season for the Clarets.
The Canada international joined Burnley from Huddersfield in 2013 and has since scored 22 goals in 193 appearances.
Arfield was born in Scotland and featured for them at U19 and U21 level before switching his allegiances to Canada.
He started his career in the Scottish Premiership with Falkirk, scoring 16 goals in 124 matches.
Dean Marney will also leave Burnley as a free agent at the end of the season. The midfielder has not played since he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury against Arsenal in January 2017, but Dyche has revealed the 34-year-old already has spoken to a couple of managers at other teams.
