That really is an ambitious signing. This isn’t the last-minute panic that a lot of cynics thought it would be.

Rangers were forced to delve into the transfer market after Jermain Defoe picked up a calf injury. The Gers have an option to sign Hagi permanently at the end of his loan spell.
Hagi joined Genk last summer in a deal worth just under £4 million. He scored three goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances this campaign.
The youngster will become Steven Gerrard’s first signing of the January window, but there could be more additions today.
According to reports from The Mirror (transfer live blog; 07:43), Rangers are also working to sign Hibernian forward Florian Kamberi today.
