Rangers-linked midfielder set for 'six-figure' Championship move - report

Rangers-linked Jeando Fuchs looks set to leave Dundee United imminently after it was reported that the Tannadice side had accepted an offer for the 24-year-old.

According to the Courier, the Arabs have accepted a bid from Peterborough United for Fuchs worth a “six-figure fee”.

After an impressive run of form earlier in the season, the Cameroon international claimed there had been interest in him from Rangers, Celtic, Blackpool, Wigan and Stuttgart as well as Peterborough.

Your Club's CRUEL Transfer Decision This Month

Speaking to French outlet Foot Mercato last month, Fuchs seemed happy to tout himself for a move away from Tannadice as he claimed there wasn’t much interest in Scottish football in France, where he grew up.

“I am at the end of my contract in May,” he said.

“I’m waiting to see something concrete and see if I have a choice to make at that time. I am not in a hurry.

“We are well placed, we are having a good season. I don’t want to jump into another quagmire and regret it again afterwards.

“There has been contact with Blackpool, Peterborough and Wigan. Stuttgart have taken information since the summer. “There has been interest from Celtic and Rangers as well, but nothing more. A Premier League club as well. England would be good.

“There is interest, but nothing really concrete. I don’t really feel like people in France are watching Scotland.

“But I’m not against the idea of ​​going home. It all depends on the project.”

Whether the addition of the likes of Rangers and Celtic was simply a ploy to drive up his bargaining power or not is anyone’s guess (it probably was), the Tannadice star looks likely to have played his last game for Thomas Courts’s side.

With Fuchs’ out of contract in the summer, getting a “six-figure” fee for him is a solid bit of business from Dundee United – although it is no real surprise he isn’t Ibrox-bound.

The impressive early-season form quickly gave way to some very average performances and led to Fuchs losing his place in the Dundee United starting XI.

Meanwhile, a former Rangers star is back in British football following £30m Turkish takeover
