Winger Jamie Murphy has undergone a medical ahead of a potential move to Rangers from Brighton.

The 28-year-old, who previously played for Sheffield United and Motherwell, helped Brighton to promotion last term.

He has, however, made just one start and three appearances as a substitute in the Premier League this season.

When asked at Glasgow Airport if it was his dream to sign for Rangers, Murphy said: "Always, so hopefully I can get the medical through."

And he added: "I don't think it's all done yet but it's good to be home. It's the club I supported as a boy and still support now."

Murphy could join Rangers in time for their mid-season trip to Florida.

He scored 10 goals in his first two seasons with Brighton and made 40 appearances last term as they sealed promotion from the Championship.

The former Scotland Under-21 international scored 50 goals for Motherwell before moving to Sheffield United five years ago.

He would become the Ibrox club's second signing of the transfer window, after Sean Goss arrived on loan for the rest of the season from QPR.

The Ibrox outfit also made a deal for full-back Declan John, who was on loan from Cardiff, permanent.
