Leeds United Keep Their Tabs On This Rangers Midfielder: Can He Be A Good Fit For The Peacocks?

Leeds United are looking to secure the services of Rangers midfielder Josh Windass in this January transfer window. According to a recent report in the English press, the Peacocks have entered the race to land the signature of the English midfielder. It is being reported that the Yorkshire based outfit is looking to move in for the 24-year-old midfielder and will go head to head with fellow Championship rivals Preston North End in pursuit of the former Accrington Stanley attacker.

Some sources are claiming that the Peacocks are ready to cough up more than £500,000 which Preston were prepared to pay earlier this month but it is believed that Windass will reject any move out of the Ibrox Stadium this month as he wants to stay and fight for his place in Graeme Murty’s revamped Rangers squad.

Another report suggests that Windass is set to begin talks over a new deal with the Scottish Premiership club but that won’t take place until the transfer window comes to a close at the end of this month. A source close to the midfielder was quoted to have said

“Josh feels he is making real progress at Rangers this season and he hopes to play a big part in the club’s future. Obviously, these decisions can be taken out of the hands of players if a big money offer does come in and Leeds do appear to be pretty serious.

“But as far as the boy is concerned, he’d prefer to be considered as an integral part of the manager’s plans and has no wish to talk to anyone else.”

The 24-year-old Rangers midfielder has featured in 24 matches for his club this season, scoring 6 goals and making 5 assists in all competitions. He has put in some brilliant displays so far in this campaign which is why he has caught the attention of some top clubs from the English Championship. 

Windass has the ability to hit the ground running at Leeds United if they are able to convince the midfielder to join them at Elland Road. He is highly versatile and can operate in a number of different positions across the midfield which included playing in the number 10 position. His wealth of experience in Scottish football could turn out to be a big asset for any of potential suitors going into the second half of the season.

It remains to be seen whether the Yorkshire club can convince Rangers to do business for their prized asset before the end of the winter transfer window.
