20-year-old midfielder set to pen long-term contract with Rangers

Jamie Barjonas has indicated he will accept the Gers contract offer and is ready to sign a new deal. U19 Scotland international has been in negotiations with the Gers about an extension to replace his current agreement, which expires at the end of the campaign.

Jamie and his representatives have told the Scottish club he will accept an offer in a breakthrough in talks. An announcement is expected in the coming weeks that will see the Gers academy product extend his stay at the club.

Rangers have high hopes about the potential of Barjonas, who they regard as a raw but highly promising talent who can make it at first-team level. He is regularly cited by youth chief Craig Mulholland as a footballer who proves the club’s oft-criticised academy is producing genuine talent.

Gers have spent lots of money in recent years in buying young footballers rather than turning to those brought through the ranks, with the likes of Glenn Middleton and Jake Hastie notable examples. The Scottish midfielder has made nine appearances for the Rangers senior side, with all of those coming in 2017.
