RANGERS are set to clinch a loan deal for Leicester City midfielder Andy King.

Boss Steven Gerrard completed his ninth deal of the summer last week when Brandon Barker moved north of the border from Manchester City.

And the 39-year-old will now add another midfielder to his ranks when King travels to Glasgow on Thursday to sign a deal with the Light Blues.
