Utrecht boss Ron Jans has revealed it all depends on Rangers whether they can turn Sam Lammers' loan move into a permanent deal.

The 26-year-old has now scored in his last three games in a row for Utrecht and already has two more goals with his loan club in 11 games than the two he managed at Rangers in 31 appearances.

It's been reported that Rangers would ask for around £2.5 million for the Eredivisie club to turn the loan into a permanent one after Rangers spent £3.5 million to land him from Atalanta, following three previous loan spells away from the Italian club.

Utrecht would love to sign Lammers, but manager Jans has revealed the move is not yet a foregone conclusion.

He pointed out: "We are very happy with Sam. He plays good football and he is a great guy.

"If he would like to stay longer, we will do everything we can.

"However, there are factors that you cannot control...Rangers and money."

And Lammers - who complained last week that he was never allowed to play in his preferred role as a striker at Rangers - has indicated that he would relish the move.

He said: "I feel good at the club.

"After a bad start this season we have recovered well. We want to reach European football, which is where we belong as Utrecht. That would really be a great achievement if you looked at where we came from.

"There have been no discussions yet, but I am having a good time, so they will be held."
