Motherwell manager Maurice Malpas expects to lose teenage goalkeeper Alan Martin to Rangers.
Martin is an Under-19 international with Scotland
"It looks as though Alan will be going to Rangers on freedom of contract - they have made compensation enquiries," he told the club website.
"At Motherwell he would be third-choice keeper, he would be playing reserve team football and on the bench with the first team.
"At Rangers he could well be playing at under-19 level for another year."
Meanwhile, Malpas is waiting to hear from signing targets that he has approached.
"I have made offers to three players and I am waiting on a yes or no from them," the former Scotland full-back added.
"I am keen to get these players in before pre-season to make sure they are at the fitness level we require.
"We have made the best offer we can after discussing things with the players and their agents and we know we are in the ball park, it is therefore a case of whether they want to come to Fir Park or not.
"There are two or three others we've got our eye on but the initial three would walk into the first team and the others would be squad players."
