Rapids set to sign defender Wilson

The Colorado Rapids are close to signing Rangers FC defender Danny Wilson, according to multiple reports.

Wilson, 26, will become the second defender added by the Rapids this offseason. Colorado acquired former Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith last weekend. Wilson, who has had two stints with Rangers in Scotland’s first division, has also made four appearances for Liverpool.

The Scottish Sun was the first to report Wilson’s signing with Colorado, pending a medical. Rangers manager Graeme Murty confirmed to multiple outlets that Wilson flew to the United States on Friday to undergo a medical and negotiate contract terms.

Wilson’s contract is reportedly set to expire this summer. He can also play left back, and will be another key addition to Colorado’s plans under new manager Anthony Hudson, which includes a shift to a 3-5-2 formation. The Rapids have also added defenders Deklan Wynne, Edgar Castillo and Kip Colvey.
