Beasley Confirmed at Rangers

As expected, American winger DaMarcus Beasley has completed the switch from PSV Eindhoven to Glasgow Rangers, signing a three-year deal with the Scottish Premier League giant. Beasley was in Glasgow on Wednesday to put the finishing touches on the deal, which is now only subject to him receiving a work permit. The club said the deal, expected for several days now, was held up due to Beasley's participation in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which the United States won on Sunday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but various reports peg the transfer fee it at $1.5 million.  

Rangers manager Walter Smith is in the midst of a personnel overhaul after finishing more than 12 points behind champion Celtic in each of the last two seasons. Beasley has become the club's fifth signing of the offseason, and Smith doesn't appear to be done yet; the club has also made inquiries into Osasuna's Carlos Cuellar, Kilmarnock's Steven Naismith and Liverpool's Robbie Fowler.

Beasley, a former Chicago Fire player, cost PSV $3 million in 2004. He played two full seasons with the Dutch giant before being loaned out to Manchester City last year, where he played well at times, but a series of injuries left him unable to lock down a place in the first team.
