REPORTS in France have suggested that Alfredo Morelos has "agreed personal terms" with Ligue 1 side Lille.

Rangers have since said that there has been no contact from the French side and it is understood that their valuation is way off what the Ibrox club are looking for.

Morelos last night told how he was open to a move away from the Glasgow club to play his football in a more "competitive league."

But with transfer jargon floating around everywhere, Herald and Times Sport has spoken to a top football agent to try and shed some light on Scottish football's big talking point.

What does agreeing personal terms actually mean?

Our agent said: "Agreeing personal terms means the club and player (normally always via an intermediary; lawyer and/or family member) have agreed the terms of the renumeration.

"This will include aspects like basic salary; appearance money; bonuses; signing on fees; renegotiation clauses; accommodation allowance; agents fees."

Does agreeing personal terms mean the transfer is complete?

Our agent said: "No. The two clubs need to agree a deal before the player can agree to any transfer.

"Personal terms are often discussed between the agent and any interested clubs prior to any formal bid to his parent club."

What is the next stage after personal terms are agreed?

Our agent said: "The next stage is for Lille to agree a deal with Rangers. It would seem that the player is keen to go so id expect him and his advisors to try and push through a move.

"Rangers will be looking to maximise the upfront fee and any subsequent bonuses and add ons."

Do Lille have to make an agreement with Rangers before speaking to Morelos?

Our agent said: "Yes technically, but any club active in the transfer market will be speaking to agents about their clients without necessarily discussing anything directly."

Even if Morelos has agreed personal terms with Lille, do Rangers have the right to say no?

Our agent said: "Yes absolutely, Rangers have rebuffed interest in the past to keep Morelos as part of the team.

"I would expect a deal to be reached in this instance, as Lille have just sold a player for considerable money and have declared formal interest."
