Scottish Premiership club Rangers are understood to be closing in on a deal to sign Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans according to the Daily Record.

The Glasgow giants have already failed to sign the player with an offer of around £700,000 however it is now believed that the club have submitted a further transfer bid thought to be in excess of £1 million for the Scottish international ace.

Dorrans is a massive Rangers fan and it is understood that it is the midfielder’s dream to play for the Ibrox based club. The player has previously spent time in Scotland with both Livingston and Partick Thistle earlier in his career and a return north of the border could now be likely.

The midfielder started his career with Livi where he made 91 appearances and scored 20 goals before earning himself a big move to West Bromwich Albion in summer 2008. Dorrans became an important player for The Baggies during almost seven years with the club with the Scot making 176 appearances for Albion, scoring 26 goals.

Dorrans moved to current club Norwich City in February 2015 and while the midfielder initially helped the club to promotion back to the Premier League, the player has also been part of the side which was immediately relegated back to the second tier of English football and he may be set to now end his spell at Carrow Road.
