Reading in talks to re-sign Liverpool's Ejaria on loan
According to Football Insider, Reading are in talks over a deal to re-sign Liverpool youngster Ovie Ejaria. It’s being reported that another loan deal could be the cards for the Englishman. The 21-year-old had two loan spells last season, one with Scottish club Rangers and the other with Reading. Ejaria didn’t have the best of times while at Rangers, only registering a goal in his 14 appearances for the Scottish club. The dynamic midfielder was rumoured to be unsettled at the club so decided to cut his stay short and leave in December. He played more as a central midfielder during his loan spell at Reading towards the end of last season.
New York is making it official.
The Rangers on Thursday announced they have agreed to terms with forward Kaapo Kakko on his entry-level contract.
Kakko, a Finland native, was selected second overall in last month's draft behind Jack Hughes, who went to the Devils at No. 1.
Terms of the deal were not revealed.
