Mohamed Diomande has officially joined the club on an initial loan deal, with a subsequent permanent transfer worth £4.5 million set to be finalized in the summer. The club, confirming the much-anticipated arrival, expressed their delight in securing the services of the talented player who has made a mark in Denmark with FC Nordsjælland.
Diomande, who emerged from the prestigious Right to Dream academy, has not only showcased his skills on the field but has also captained FC Nordsjælland on several occasions. His signing marks the second acquisition for Rangers during the January transfer window, with Fabio Silva having joined on loan from Wolves until the end of the season.
Expressing his enthusiasm for the move to Ibrox, Diomande stated, “I am very excited to join such a historic club, and I’ve heard a lot of good things about the team. I had a lot of great conversations with the manager who told me about his plans for the team and where I would fit in, which helped convince me that Rangers was right for me. I really can’t wait to get started, join up with my teammates, and run out at Ibrox for the very first time in front of the Rangers supporters.”
Rangers’ boss, Philippe Clement, echoed the excitement, stating, “I am really pleased to have been able to add Mohamed to our squad, and I am excited to see what he can bring to our team. In our conversations and what I have seen of him as a player, I believe he will be a real asset to us, not only in what remains of this season, but in the seasons to come also. I look forward to welcoming him to Glasgow and to working with him on the training pitch soon.”
The move signifies a significant step in Diomande’s career, and Rangers fans can eagerly anticipate witnessing the midfielder’s contributions to the team’s success in the upcoming seasons.
