angers defender James Tavernier has been linked with an £8m move to Bournemouth on the Football Daft podcast [Episode 5: 38:20].
Speaking on the podcast host Ewen Cameron claimed that co-host Grado had revealed the information to him earlier.
Grado goes on to claim that a reliable source at Ibrox told him the ominous news. And that the same source has never been wrong before.

“I’m hearing he could be heading to the Premiership,” said Cameron.
“You [Grado] told me that Tavernier could be ending up at Bournemouth because they’re in need of a right-back.
“£8m to Bournemouth apparently, apparently there’s some sort of deal in place.”
Grado then went on to respond about the legitimacy of the source.
“I heard it from a very good source,” said Grado. “But I don’t think it’s going to happen now.
“Everything that he’s told me, it’s come true. I’m telling you nothing again.”
There’s absolutely nothing concrete about Ewan Cameron and Grado’s suggestion, but it’s unsurprising there are teams looking at Tavernier.
The flying right-back has gone from strength to strength in a Rangers shirt and is relishing his role as club captain.

At 27, Tavernier is playing at almost the peak of his powers. Should the story turn out to be true, his 17 goals and 20 assists would be a gigantic loss to Rangers.
Tavernier has also been linked to Aston Villa as they prepare to return to the Premier League [Daily Mail].
But has Tavernier already hinted to his loyalty to Rangers in a message to outgoing captain Lee Wallace?
