But after former Doncaster boss Grant McCann moved to Hull City, the move appeared to have fallen through.
It’s McCann who appears back in for the player with the promise of Championship football next season an exciting prospect for Middleton.
The English second tier is a superb level for Middleton to test his talents in.
League One has also proved a positive development ground for Rangers talent.
Still only 19, Middleton is rated highly at Ibrox but could find opportunities limited this season.
The Ibrox club has signed Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie, Greg Stewart and Sheyi Ojo, who can all play in Middleton’s position.
A loan move makes sense and it’s interesting that McCann is reportedly looking at the player again despite moving clubs himself.
It means the Northern Irishman is clearly an admirer of Middleton, which may bode well in his hunt for minutes this campaign.
Coventry City also poses an interesting proposition for the Scotland U21 international.
