Skysports.com understands Bristol City are closing in on the signing of Rangers defender Andy Webster.
The Championship club have made a move for the Scotland international after losing Jamie McCombe to injury.
McCombe faces up to six weeks on the sidelines after fracturing his cheekbone in Saturday's draw with Derby and Robins boss Gary Johnson is keen to bring in Webster to fill the void.
Motherwell have also enquired about taking Webster on loan, but City hope to lure the former Wigan man to Ashton Gate.
Rangers are willing to loan out the 26-year-old as he looks to get some regular action under his belt.
Webster was restricted to just one appearance for Rangers last season and a loan move would suit both City and the Ibrox outfit.
