Borna Barisic’s agent has claimed the defender will stay at Rangers until at least 2021, amid reported interested from Tottenham and Napoli.

He said: "Rangers won't be able to keep Borna after the season he's had, even though he's just signed a new contract.

"Borna's priority right now is Rangers, who have made significant progress this season under the management of Steven Gerrard.

"There was interest in him during the winter transfer window - the strongest came from Napoli, but Rangers turned down all offers because they wanted to keep one of their best players.

"They value Borna a lot and wanted to win something with him because Rangers haven't won a trophy for a long time.

"But after the season is over and given the demand for Borna, Rangers are sure to start considering new offers. It will be a completely new position for Borna.

"His performances this season have opened up a whole, new horizon for him."

But now in a dramatic U-turn Cakarun has claimed that the Croatian defender is keen to stay in Scotland for at least another year.

Speaking to Calcio Napoli 24, he said: “Napoli? Borna is concentrated only on the path with Rangers until next summer.”
