TEENAGE wonderkid Zak Lovelace is reportedly set to join Rangers from Millwall.

The 16-year-old attracted interest over the summer after making his Championship debut for Millwall aged just 15 back in December last year.

And now, it's claimed Rangers have won the race for his signature. 

Forward Lovelace had not yet penned professional terms but is thought to be ready to make the move to Ibrox this summer.

Transfer insider Fraser Fletcher reports Lovelace has informed Millwall of his decision to leave to sign for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side from July 1.

It comes after Premier League duo Brighton and Leicester City were reportedly in for the teenager following his impressive youth form - with 21 goals in 19 games - which earned him a first-team spot.

Millwall were also desperate to keep hold of talent Lovelace with boss Gary Rowett making his feelings clear before the off-season.

However, it's now expected Lovelace will leave the club with Rangers ready to hand him an Iborx deal.

On Lovelace, Rowett previously explained: “The club have made it clear that we would love Zak to be part of what we do next year and on a full-time basis. That’s our aim.

“There is an inevitability, unfortunately, that some of your better young players get poached by other clubs. To a certain degree those fees are a little bit out of your hands.

“Zak is one of those, a lad who has had a bit of interest. He’ll be getting different advice and all we can do is show how much we want him here and then see what happens.

“I don’t think he has got to make a decision now. I think someone would have to be interested and essentially pay compensation for him.”
