Toronto midfielder Maurice Edu is travelling to Glasgow on Saturday to finalise a transfer to Rangers.
It was reported on Friday night that Rangers had agreed a deal for the American international.
And the Scottish club have now confirmed the news and revealed that Edu will be attending the match against Hearts this weekend.
Rangers will discuss personal terms with the 22-year-old after agreeing a fee of $5million (£2.5million) with Toronto.
They will also work with Edu and their American counterparts in a bid to secure a work permit for the player.
Edu has recently returned from the Olympic Games in China, where he featured in all three of USA's games.
He also enjoyed a superb spell with Toronto after being selected as first pick in the Major League Soccer draft of 2007, with his performances earning him the Rookie of the Year award.
