After completing a loan move to Scottish giants Rangers last week, Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu put an end to a saga that had dragged on for months.
Reports claim that the loan option was the best for now with both clubs still in negotiation on a price for a permanent move for the 28-year-old.
The Daily Sunday Mail reports that after negotiations both clubs have now reached an agreement with Amiens lowering the player’s price tag by a million pounds from the initial 3.7 million pounds to now 2.7 million pounds.
This means If Rangers are pleased with Zungu’s services in the current season, the former Scottish Champions can buy the midfielder on a permanent basis.
After signing the man from Kwa-Dukuza, manager Steven Gerrard mentioned that Zungu is the type of player the club and technical team were looking to bring into the team to give them more options in midfield going into a season where Rangers will once again be participating in the UEFA Europa League while also challenging home town rivals Glasgow Celtic for the league title.
Zungu has been registered for both the league and UEFA Europa league campaigns and could make his debut in the ‘old firm’ derby this coming Saturday in the league.
