Chances of Rangers landing defender increase as Hull City pull out - report

The Hull Daily Mail reports Hull City have cooled their interest in George Edmundson.
The 21-year-old defender caught the eye of multiple clubs through his performances for Oldham Athletic across the 2018/19 season.

The report lists Rangers, Derby County, Stoke City, and Preston North End as possible destinations for the centre-back.
Steven Gerrard’s side have reportedly already had a bid in the region of £450,000 rejected by the Latics [The Scotsman]. With so many clubs said to be circling, it seems the League Two outfit are holding out and hoping to start a bidding war.

However, now that the asking price is rising towards half a million, it’s said that Hull City will look elsewhere.

Meanwhile, earlier in the week, Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony ruled his club out of the running too.

Plenty of sides are still in the hunt. However, the news of Hull’s likely withdrawal from the race increases their chances a little.
Gers club insider, Four Lads Had A Dream, previously claimed Edmundson had received a tour of the Hummel Training Centre. That certainly suggests there’s interest from the player himself.

However, it may come down to who is prepared to stump up the most cash.
Will Gerrard be prepared to take a punt on a player who turned out 54 times for the EFL fourth-tier outfit last season? Time will tell.
Rangers need reinforcements with Joe Worrall all but confirming he’s heading back to Nottingham Forest.
