Rangers have confirmed the signing of striker Alfredo Morelos from HJK Helsinki on a three-year contract.

The Colombian U20 international flew into Scotland for talks last week ahead of a potential move and the club have confirmed that the deal has now been completed.

Morelos started his career at Independiente Medellín in his home country before an initial loan move to HJK last year turned into a permanent switch.

He had scored 11 goals in nine appearances this season to help the Finnish side to the top of the league before his move to Glasgow.

The 20-year old is Pedro Caixinha’s sixth signing of the summer, joining Ryan Jack, Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Daniel Candeias and Dalcio at Ibrox.

Mexican pair Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera have also recently been in Glasgow for talks ahead of proposed moves to Rangers, with both needing to secure work permits before the deals are completed.

Elsewhere, Rangers have been drawn to face Luxembourg’s Progres Niederkorn in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.
