Burnley have confirmed that Rangers have made an approach to sign former Manchester United winger Chris Eagles.
The 24-year-old, who has 12 months left on his Turf Moor deal, joined the Clarets in 2008 and has become a firm fans' favourite.
Eagles made 34 Premier League appearances for Burnley last season - 20 of those as a starter - but was unable to prevent the Lancashire side from being relegated.
With the possible threat of losing Eagles on a free transfer next summer, Burnley have now confirmed they are locked in transfer talks for the talented winger.
Rangers boss Walter Smith is on the look-out for reinforcements having lost the likes of Kris Boyd, DaMarcus Beasley and Nacho Novo this summer.
"Burnley can confirm it has received a formal approach from Scottish Premier League champions Rangers for winger Chris Eagles, who has just 12 months remaining on his current contract at Turf Moor," read a statement on the club's official website.
"The two clubs are now in negotiations."
