Zambian striker Fashion Sakala says it is a “dream come true to join Rangers” after agreeing on a four-year deal with the Scottish champions.

The 24-year-old Zambia international has signed a pre-contract to move to Ibrox this summer, subject to a work permit and international clearance.

Sakala has scored 13 times in 29 games for KV Oostende in the Belgian top flight this season.

He described Rangers as “one of the greatest clubs in the world”.

“They have a great fanbase and a great history, and I believe we will share great memories together,” he added.

“As a player, you always strive to play for others – that is the most important strength which keeps me going. I know that Rangers have great players and I am looking forward to learning from them and deliver.”

Sakala moved to Belgium from Russia where he played for Spartak Moscow, three years ago and has scored 26 goals in 90 appearances for the Oostende, where he is a teammate of on-loan Celtic defender Jack Hendry.

After finishing fifth in the regular season this season, Oostende are involved in the playoffs for Europa League qualification.

Sakala has scored once for Zambia as well and has made 11 appearances for the national side, having made his international debut in September 2017.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says the Glasgow club have been tracking the forward “for some time” and are “excited” by his potential.

“He fits our profile and has the attributes to not only thrive in Scotland but on the European stage as well,” added Gerrard.

Ibrox sporting director Ross Wilson says the player rejected other offers by choosing to join Rangers and will add “pace and power” to the squad.
