Palermo defender Dorin Goian has signed for Glasgow Rangers following his successful medical yesterday.
The Romanian centre-back will cost the SPL side £750,000, subject to international clearance and a work permit.
"He's very experienced, strong, aggressive, tall and definitely something we need and he will certainly be a welcome addition to the team," insisted Rangers boss Ally McCoist.
"I think what you see is what you get. Like I say, he's a strong aggressive defender who'll attack the ball and win his challenges."
Goian, who has signed a three-year deal, hopes to do well at his new club and claims his experience with Palermo will help him in Scotland.
"This is a different challenge for me, but it is a good one," he said. "I have changed team and the country I am playing in, but I am a fighter and I know everything here is going to be okay for me.
"I hope the experiences I have had already in my career will help me to do well and be successful here."
