Rangers are reported to have agreed terms with Major League Soccer side Toronto for star Maurice Edu.

The American international has just returned home from the Beijing Olympics, but it is claimed he will quickly be on the plane again to fly to Glasgow to finalise a move.

Reports in Canada suggest a fee of around £2.5million has been agreed between The Gers and MLS - who hold all player registrations in their league.

Edu joined Toronto through the American SuperDraft system in 2007 and after an outstanding first year he was named Rookie of the Year.

The 22-year-old, who has six senior American caps to his name, is set to pen a deal subject to a work permit being granted.

Should Edu seal his move to Ibrox he will join fellow countryman DaMarcus Beasley at the club.
