Rangers given hope of snapping up Joey Veerman

Rangers have been handed a major boost in the race to land Joey Veerman as it appears the Dutch club Feyenoord have moved on.

The star reportedly has an admirer in manager Steven Gerrard and is keen to quit Heerenveen this summer for a fresh challenge.

The 22-year-old star has already been subject of offers from Feyenoord and Hellas Verona this summer with the Gers waiting in the wings.

The offer from the Serie A club has already been thrown out, and De Trots van Zuid now appear to have given up the summer chase.

The Dutch outfit had hoped to seal a swap deal, but technical director Frank Arnesen revealed they had been priced out of a move.

The club have now turned to Molde star Fredrik Aursnes and have announced the deal for the 25-year-old.
