RANGERS are today delighted to welcome Jon Toral on loan from Arsenal until the end of the season subject to international clearance.

The Spanish youth internationalist came through the ranks at Barcelona before switching to the Gunners alongside their current first-team star Hector Bellerin.

While yet to make a competitive appearance for Arsene Wenger’s side, he played on loan under Mark Warburton at Brentford, before enjoying a similar spell at Birmingham City for the 2015/16 season where he won the Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year award and also the Goal of the Season gong for a strike against Ipswich Town.

In all, he scored eight times in 38 games from midfield for Gary Rowett’s men as they comfortably retained their Championship status.

He spent the first half of this campaign at La Liga outfit Granada, scoring once in a Copa Del Rey tie with Osasuna and now joins Warburton’s Gers for the remainder of the season.

Called-up for Spanish under-17 and under-19 squads, he also qualifies to play for England through his mother.
