Brighton and Hove Albion winger Jamie Murphy is having a medical as he prepares for a dream move to Glasgow Rangers.

Murphy, 28, is in Glasgow for his medical with the Ibrox club having supported them since he was a boy.

Rangers are reported to be paying about £1 million for Murphy who previously played for another Scottish Premiership club, Motherwell, and then Sheffield United.

He was Motherwell’s leading European goal scorer with a tally that included a hat-trick in one Europa League match.

The Medical

In all competitions he notched up 50 goals for the Lanarkshire side in 215 games over seven seasons.

At Sheffield United – then in League One – he managed 21 goals in 121 games over four seasons.

He joined Brighton on a four-year contract from the Blades in August 2015 and scored 10 goals in 79 appearances.

His tally included two league goals in 37 games in the Championship last season as Albion won promotion.

But this season he has played just four times for the Seagulls, with only one start.

He faces strong competition for a place in Chris Hughton’s side from Jose Izquierdo, Solly March and Anthony Knockaert.

Murphy, who was born in Glasgow, has also represented Scotland at under-19 and under-21 level and was included in the full national squad for two friendlies in 2016.
