If a report from the Daily Record is believed to be true, Rangers are open to offers for George Edmundson and Jordan Jones amid interest from Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic. Both of them have slipped down the pecking order in their respective roles and the Bears are willing to cash in on the pair ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Edmundson was roped in from Oldham Athletic a couple of summers ago. The 23-year-old centre-half was handed a sporadic status behind Connor Goldson, Filip Helander and Nikola Katic, but he impressed in limited minutes with his calmness and composure. His performance against Braga in the Europa League attained accolades and appreciation, however, the suspension last year for breaching covid protocols sent him further down the pecking order.
Why Rangers Should Accept Offers For Both Edmundson And Jones
Meanwhile, the Gers have convinced Goldson to put pen to paper. The ex-Brighton star has extended his Ibrox stay for three more years whereas the arrivals of Leon Balogun and Jack Simpson have added more depth as well as quality throughout the previous term. Nikola Katic has recovered from a year-long injury nightmare and the well equipped deep defence seems to have no space for the promising Englishman.
Edmundson was not alone to get punished. Jones breached the regulations as well and the suspended winger was eventually loaned out to Sunderland in the third tier of English football. The Northern Irishman had an instant impact down the wide due to his directness, but the Black Cats’ promotion heartbreak denied him a permanent move to the Stadium of Light. He returned to Govan for the pre-season games in order to reclaim his first-team place.
Despite appearing in the friendlies, Jones would still be behind Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe, Scott Wright and Ianis Hagi. At 26, the winger should seek regular gametime rather than accepting a squad role and it is to be seen now whether the Latics step up the chase in an attempt to accelerate their promotion push.
Edmundson was loaned out to Derby County during the winter window and his resolute defensive display earned plaudits from Wayne Rooney. The former Manchester United ace wants him back at Pride Park, but the transfer embargo has restricted the Rams from tying down players on permanent terms. Paul Cook, the new Portman Road chief, must take advantage of the scenario and secure his services for the Tractor Boys to meet their season goals.
