Ofoborh pens pre-contract agreement at Rangers, as Maja join Fulham

MIDFIELDER Nnamdi Ofoborh is set to depart Cherries for Rangers in the summer after penning a pre-contract agreement with the Ibrox club.
The 21-year-old has also seemingly played his final game for Cherries, after sealing a loan deal with Wycombe Wanderers yesterday until the end of the season.
As Ofoborh is under the age of 24, Cherries will be entitled to compensation from Rangers for the Nigeria under-20 international.
Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said: “We look forward to welcoming Nnamdi to our group in the summer. We are extremely impressed by his qualities and he is a player that has real progression in him.
“He has a positive and determined personality and is very much looking forward to becoming a Rangers player at the end of this season.
“In the meantime, we are really pleased that Nnamdi will play week in week out until the end of the season in the Championship at Wycombe, a club he excelled at previously under Gareth Ainsworth.”
Southwark-born Ofoborh played five times for Cherries at senior level.
Meanwhile, Fulham manager, Scott Parker, has explained his thinking behind the signing of Bordeaux winger Josh Maja on transfer deadline day.
The Nigeria international learnt his footballing trade at the Fulham academy before moves to Manchester City and Sunderland, so he won’t have an issue adapting to life in the Premier League.
Parker revealed that he went for Maja because of his potential and expects him to follow in the footsteps of summer arrivals Antonee Robinson, Tosin Adarabioyo and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Asked at Tuesday’s press conference if Maja is set to come straight in and get the goals, Parker answered : “Why? It’s just I’ve not seen him at the moment. We’ll have to work it out.
“I’ve brought Josh to the football club because of his big potential and the work we’ve done with Tosin, Antonee Robinson, Loftus-Cheek – all of these players have done fantastically well and I think Josh fits into the same bracket”.
Maja is expected to link up with his new teammates on Tuesday, a day before they face off with Leicester City at Craven Cottage.
