Newcastle burned off Rangers competition to sign Ludwig Francillette

Newcastle United burned off competition from Rangers to sign Ludwig Francillette, it has been revealed.

L'Equipe says Francillette, who signed for the NUFC Under-23 squad earlier this month, was wanted by Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

United were told by scout Guy Ipoua to act quickly and were warned that Rangers were on the case.

Francillette has yet to feature for the U23s after injury ruled him out of the last two games.
