Rangers are reportedly nearing the signing of former Sunderland midfielder Stephane Sessegnon, having agreed terms with the player.
Sessegnon is a free agent since his departure from Turkish Super Lig side Gençlerbirligi in June 2020.
The 37-year-old player has agreed to move to the Nigeria Professional Football League side on a short term contract.
His rise to international stardom has been an unlikely one, with the player starting professional football at Requins de l'Atlantique before linking up with Créteil.
The exciting midfielder also enjoyed stints at Le Mans, Paris Saint-Germain, Sunderland, West Bromwich Albion and Montpellier.
Sessègnon made his debut for Benin on 6 June 2004 in a 2006 World Cup qualification match against Cameroon starting in the team's 2-1 loss. The Squirrels skipper has been capped 83 times at international level.
He is a distant cousin of twin brothers Ryan, who plays for Hoffenheim on loan from Tottenham Hotspur and Steven, who plays for Bristol City on loan from Fulham.
