Crystal Palace have once again been mentioned alongside reported Rangers target Ronnie Edwards.

According to the Daily Mail, the Eagles are one of four clubs heading the list for the Peterborough defender, with West Ham and Bournemouth mentioned.

The report also once again mentions apparent Rangers interest in the England youth international centre-back.

The Ibrox side were linked with a move for Ronnie Edwards last week alongside Premier League outfits Bournemouth and West Ham.

It’s not the first time Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Ronnie Edwards either.

Reports from last summer suggest the Selhurst Park side had a £7.5m bid turned down for the centre-back in 2022.

Ronnie Edwards linked to Crystal Palace

The links to Crystal Palace come as reports of Rangers interest in Ronnie Edwards is rubbished by leading Ibrox fan media.

The club told the Ibrox media partners that Rangers are “not interested” in the defender as things stand.

And it’s probably just as well considering the kind of price tags being attached to the centre-back.

Peterborough sporting director Barry Fry raised doubts about Rangers being able to afford Ronnie Edwards amid links to the Premier League.

Club chairman Darragh MacAnthony has also claimed that the defender will one day be a £70m player.

The Ronnie Edwards links to Crystal Palace also come as Rangers boss Michael Beale claims the club is in the hunt for one new addition this summer.

The Ibrox manager has hinted the club is set to add one more player with the transfer business likely focused on the outgoings as things stand.

With centre-back an area of great debate, expect Rangers fans to muse over potential additions until the window shuts.

Although one centre-back in particular will not be joining Rangers after striking a deal elsewhere.

Rangers currently have Connor Goldson, Ben Davies, John Souttar and Leon Balogun as senior centre-back options, with Leon King on the periphery.
