Rangers Set To Part Ways With 28 Y/O Defensive Ace: A Good Move For All Parties Involved?

Rangers could lose their English goalkeeper Wes Foderingham this summer just one year after he extended his contract at the Ibrox Stadium. According to recent reports, the Teddy Bears are close to sealing a deal for Allan McGregor which has thrown Foderingham’s future in doubt. It is believed that a whole host of clubs which include Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday are monitoring his situation at the Glaswegian club ahead of a potential move in the summer.

The English keeper has made over 100 appearances for the Gers since making a switch from Swindon Town in the summer of 2015. He recently put pen to paper on a new deal with Rangers last summer which is set to expire in the summer of 2020. Some sources are claiming that the Teddy Bears are ready to cash in on Foderingham when the transfer window opens in the summer with Jak Alnwick, who was his understudy, set to take his place in the Graeme Murty’s first-team.

Foderingham is currently sidelined due to a shoulder injury which will keep him out for the remainder of the campaign. He has featured in 37 matches for Rangers this season, conceding 45 goals while keeping 11 clean sheets across all competitions. The 27-year-old shot-stopper has represented the England national team at the youth level which is why a return to English football might suit his style of play.

Rangers are currently sitting in the second spot in the league table with a tally of 65 points after featuring in 34 league fixtures in the Scottish top-flight this season. They have lost the race for the league title but will hope to bounce back next season by mounting a better challenge to their local rivals, Celtic.

Retaining some of their top players could go a long way in helping them close the gap to the Hoops in the near future. However, with Foderingham currently being deemed surplus to requirements at the Ibrox Stadium, a potential move out of Scottish football might be the best solution for all parties. The English keeper can benefit from playing football week in week out while also trying his luck on a new challenge in his career. 

At 27, Foderingham still has peak years ahead of him which makes him a perfect fit for any of his potential suitors. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Foderingham and whether he ends up making a switch out of Glasgow in the near future.
