Rangers have agreed a fee with Aston Villa for defender Carlos Cuellar.

Rangers are preparing to re-sign former defender Carlos Cuellar after a fee was agreed with Aston Villa.

Villa signed the 29-year-old Spaniard in 2008 for £7.8m on a four-year deal.

Manager Ally McCoist told Sky Sports News: "A fee has been agreed and in an ideal world we'll get the deal done and get Carlos up here to join us."

"He was a wonderful player for us," he added. "Very well thought of."

McCoist also reiterated his wish to re-sign Kenny Miller from Turkish side Bursaspor after reports the striker and his family were finding it hard to settle abroad.

"We haven't been in touch with Bursaspor, but I wouldn't rule out anything at this stage. We are looking to bring in three or four players into the squad before facing Hearts (Rangers' opening SPL fixture) next Saturday."
