Norwich City defender Russell Martin is set to sign for Rangers on loan until the end of the season, according to the Daily Record.

The experienced centre-back has fallen down the pecking order at Carrow Road this season under Daniel Farke and has been linked with a loan switch to Rangers for a while now.

It finally looks like Martin, who is a Scotland international, will join the Scottish Premier League giants next week. Rangers have been busy in this transfer window so far and have already signed Jamie Murphy from Brighton and Hove Albion for a fee of around £1 million, Sean Goss on loan from Queens Park Rangers and Declan John on a permanent deal from Cardiff City.

Martin, 32, was born in Brighton but represents Scotland and has made 29 caps for his country. He played for Brighton in their academy but joined non-league side Lewes in 2004.

He was then snapped up by Wycombe Wanderers, where he spent four seasons before being signed by Peterborough United.

He was then signed by Paul Lambert for Norwich City in 2009 and he has been there ever since. He joined them when they were in League One and played a key role in their rise to the Premier League. He has played over 250 games for the Canaries in his career.

Martin is a very experienced defender and will be a decent coup for Rangers. It is also a great move for him to a big club in a league where he has never played before.
