Jamie Murphy has admitted it is a great feeling to be “coming back home”, after Rangers and Brighton agreed a fee for the winger this afternoon.
Murphy has spent two years at the Seagulls, having played a major role in securing the club’s promotion to the Premier League last season.
However, with Murphy a boyhood Gers fan and with Chris Hughton unable to provide him with first-team football, the potential of an Ibrox move materialised over the last few weeks.
“It’s a great feeling to be coming back home,” Murphy said.
“There are still things to be finalised but I’m hoping we can get it all tied up as quickly as possible.”
He added, “All I want is to help the team keep on improving.”
Murphy is Rangers’ second signing of the January window, with the club having secured QPR midfielder Sean Goss on a loan deal earlier this week.
