With attention focused on Bruno Alves joining Sevco the Ibrox club are close to completing a deal to sign Jack Blackford.

According to a report in The Sun the 19-year-old wing wizard will join up with the kids from the Murray Park academy at the Hong Kong Sevens event and could earn a deal if he impresses Graeme Murty.

Blackford has been released by Hartlepool after they were relegated out of the Football League at the end of the season.

The highly rated starlet made one top team appearance, as a 70th minute substitute in the 2-0 defeat from Barnet last month but earned rave reviews out on loan at Whitby Town and Darlington where he was compared to Jamie Vardy.

With money tight and little chance of shifting the deadwood assembled by Mark Warburton, Caixinha has been told to think outside of the box in terms of transfers.

Sevco are reported to have contacted Aberdeen with a view to getting permission to discuss a contract with Ryan Jack.
