Rangers have signed Juninho Bacuna from Huddersfield on a permanent deal.

Bacuna joins the Scottish Premiership champions after three seasons at Huddersfield, where he scored 12 goals in 107 appearances for the Championship club.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who is the younger brother of Cardiff winger Leandro Bacuna, becomes Rangers fourth signing of the summer - joining Nnamdi Ofoborh, Fashion Sakala and John Lundstram at Ibrox.

Huddersfield confirmed Bacuna's departure in a statement on Thursday.

"Our thanks go to Juninho for his contribution over the last three seasons, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours," read the statement.

Rangers travel to Armenia next week for the second leg of their Europa League play-off against Alashkert on Thursday before hosting Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday August 29, live on Sky Sports.

The Scottish transfer window closes on August 31.
