Vancouver Whitecaps are believed to be close to signing Carlos Bocanegra from Rangers.

The 33-year old USA national team captain could be in his way out at Ibrox as the Glasgow club continue to deal with off-field problems which are now likely to affect which division they play in next season.

SunSport suggests that the Whitecaps are extremely keen on the former Fulham, Rennes and Saint-Etienne man and with his future in Scotland unknown, a shift back to Major League Soccer - where he kicked off his career with Chicago Fire - could be on the cards.
