Rangers winger Jordan Jones is set to join Sunderland on-loan after being frozen out at Ibrox following his Covid-19 breach earlier in the season.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who claim the pacey 26-year-old Northern Ireland international is set to join the Black Cats until the end of the season.

Ex-Kilmarnock winger Jones had fought his way back into Steven Gerrard’s plans this season but is yet to be seen since he breached Covid-19 protocols with George Edmundson in November.

Jones and Edmundson were suspended by the club and handed seven-game bans by the SFA which were completed when the Gers played Hibs at Ibrox on Boxing Day.

Should the move go through, it’ll be a return to the northeast for Jones who started his career at the Riverside with Sunderland’s rivals Middlesbrough.

The Ulster winger would then move to Rugby Park where he impressed in three seasons before moving to Rangers last summer in a pre-contract move.

Since coming to Ibrox things haven’t gone exactly to plan for Jones who has made only 19 appearances for the club in two seasons, scoring only once.

That goal came against Motherwell in a 5-1 win which earlier in the season where Jones had looked to resurrect his Rangers career.

Now reportedly set to move down south, could any Jones transfer speed up a pre-contract deal Rangers have struck with another attacker based in Scotland?
