Rangers winger Jordan Jones is a man in demand as a spate of reports link up to six Championship clubs to the player.

Ex-Ibrox gaffer and now QPR boss Mark Warburton was also said to be interested in taking the player to Loftus Road.
The origin of those reports come from TEAMtalk, who also linked Preston and Barnsley to the former Kilmarnock winger.
The Northern Echo report claims the winger will be available for around £500k and should the pacey forward move on, it will sum up what has been a disappointing spell in Glasgow for Jones.
A stand-out at Rugby Park, Jones has struggled to break through into the Rangers side and following a frustrated social media post, the writing appeared to be on the wall.
After that crunching challenge on Celtic’s Patrick Bauer last September, the winger had the resultant red card, a scowling Steven Gerrard, and a four-month injury to contend with.
Since then Jones has been unable to breakthrough into a competitive forward line which – despite its failings in the final third last season – Jones was not given in a chance in.
The likes of Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi, Jamie Murphy, Brandon Barker and Greg Stewart also appear to be ahead of the player in the Ibrox pecking order.
Steven Gerrard also said after the Veolia Trophy last month that “over the course of the coming weeks you will definitely see the squad get smaller” [Daily Record].
Despite signing a four-year pre-contract deal in January last year, all of this points to Jones heading towards the exit door in the not-so-distant future.
