Racing Santander have announced they have signed Carlos Bocanegra on loan from Rangers.
The Spanish second division side said the USA defender had joined until June 30, 2013.
Rangers earlier saw Maurice Edu complete his move to Stoke but are hoping to add to their squad with talks underway over the signing of Hearts winger David Templeton.
Rangers, whose 12-month transfer embargo begins on Saturday, are also keen to sign Australian international Ryan McGowan from the Tynecastle club but a deal for Templeton is more likely.
