Rangers may well feel the effect of Darren Randolph’s £4m transfer from Middlesbrough to West Ham if earlier reports are to be believed.

The former Motherwell goalkeeper has moved to the Premier League with the Hammers in the midst of an injury crisis between the sticks.

Back in mid-December, Foderingham was a name being mentioned as Randolph’s potential replacement [Daily Mail] in Jonathon Woodgate’s side.

According to that report, Foderingham was originally interesting Boro and Birmingham City with a view to a pre-contract move.

The former Swindon keeper’s contract expires at the end of the season and with game time limited at Ibrox you expect Fods won’t be offered a new deal.

At 28, the keeper needs to be playing and despite enjoying the number one jersey at Ibrox for a few seasons, Allan McGregor’s top form has helped the Scotsman sew up the spot.

Whilst many expected Foderingham to see out his deal – the goalkeeper remains a positive and influential figure behind the scenes at the club – the lure of first-team football may prove too strong.

With the sale of Darren Randolph, Middlesbrough will now be preparing to enter the transfer market for another goalkeeper.

Could they take a chance on the talented second-string goalkeeper currently warming the bench at Rangers?

A move to England might not be the only option on the table for Foderingham either.

The stopper is also said to be interesting MLS side DC United [Daily Mail].
