Rangers announced on their official website on Thursday that English attacking midfielder Kieran Dowell has joined the club on a free transfer from Norwich City.

According to Rangers' official statement, Dowell has signed on a three-year contract with the club which runs until the summer of 2026.

After completing his joining procedures, Dowell, who was interviewed by the Rangers official website for the first time said: "I am very excited and very happy to complete this transfer as soon as the season has just ended."

"I know a lot of players in the Rangers team and Scottish lads from my old clubs, and they speak highly of Rangers, the intensity, the pressure it puts on you to succeed, is a very good motivator because it will give you the desire to win every game. I'm very happy to be here."

It is worth mentioning that Dowell is the second player that Rangers have signed from Norwich City in the first-half of this year. The Scottish Premiership giants have also the Canaries' former England U21s international left-winger Todd Cantwell during the winter transfer window at end of the last January.

The 25-year-old Dowell was born in Ormskirk, England on October 10, 1997. He is 1.86 meters tall and primarily plays as an attacking midfielder, but he can also play as a right-winger or defensive midfielder.

Dowell joined the Everton youth academy at the age of 7 and made his first-team debut by coming on as a substitute in a Europa League match in November 2014.

Later, in order to gain more match experience, Dowell was loaned-out to Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, Derby County and Wigan Athletic successively between July 2017 and the end of May 2020.

At the end of July 2020, Dowell moved to Norwich City for £1.5 million and led the club to win the EFL Championship once.

This season, Dowell has played 25 times for the EFL Championship club in all competitions, scoring 5 goals and assisting 3 times.
