Rangers are weighing up whether to make Russell Martin’s loan move from Norwich City permanent, according to the Daily Record.

The experienced defender has spent the latter part of this season on loan at the Scottish Premier League side and is out of contract at Championship outfit Norwich City next month, meaning he is available for Rangers to sign on a free transfer.

However, Rangers are mulling over a deal for Martin as well as weighing up whether to sign Jason Cummings and Sean Goss on permanent deals from Nottingham Forest and QPR respectively.

Martin is expected to leave Norwich City at the expiry of his contract and could find himself looking for a new club. He has played 10 games for Rangers since joining them on loan in January.

The 32-year-old has played for the Canaries since 2010 and has played over 300 games for the East Anglian side. He has also been involved in two promotions to the Premier League during his eight years at Carrow Road.

Russell Martin started his career at non-league side Lewes but was snapped up by Wycombe Wanderers in 2004. He spent four years playing for them in League Two before he was signed by Peterborough United on a free transfer and helped the Posh get promoted to the Championship in his first season.

After half a season in the Championship with Peterborough, Norwich signed him in January 2010 and that is where he has been since. A move to Rangers could still happen for him this summer, but it is a waiting game for Martin now.
