Rangers and Southampton are in ongoing talks over the return of Northern Ireland skipper Steven Davis to Ibrox, according to Sky Sports sources.
It is understood that the south coast side are willing to release their club captain if terms can be agreed with the Gers, as he only has six months remaining on his contract.
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has said that the club is seeking a positive outcome to the talks, and is ready to help the 34-year-old to make the next step in his career, and acknowledged Davis’ service to the club.
Davis joined Southampton in 2012 after the left Rangers amid the deep financial troubles which the Glasgow club were facing at the time.
Despite being the captain of the Scottish side, he rejected a transfer to the newco company which was founded to keep Rangers afloat.
Davis enjoyed a trophy-laden spell during his four-year stint at Ibrox, winning three Scottish title medals, two Scottish League Cups, and a Scottish Cup winners medal.
Overall he made 200 appearances, with the midfielder also scoring 21 goals.
He has also won 105 caps for Northern Ireland, and was part of the 2016 European Championship team which reached the last 16.
Rangers are currently level on points with their arch rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership, having won the Old Firm derby 1-0 last Saturday.
