An update has finally been provided on Rangers bound player Nnamdi Ofoborh, who hasn’t featured for loan club Wycombe Wanderers since mid-March.
Ofoborh signed a pre-contract agreement with the Gers during the winter transfer window before leaving parent club Bournemouth on loan.
Given that the powerful midfielder had played a significant role in Wycombe’s promotion from League One the previous season during a first loan stint, it looked a good move ahead of his switch to Ibrox.
However, the last of his three starts since returning to Adams Park came way back in early February. Between then and mid-March, he made five substitute appearances and was an unused sub on four occasions.
Since then, he hasn’t even made the matchday squad for seven consecutive Championship fixtures, with an element of mystery surrounding his absences.
A relative lack of communication from the Chairboys made it unclear if he was simply out of favour or had picked up an injury.
Initially, it may well have been the former, with an official preview for Wycombe’s clash with Luton Town on 10th April stating that all players other than Dominic Gape and Jordan Obita were ‘fit and available for duty’ [Wycombewanderers.co.uk].
However, Ofoborh appears to have since picked up an injury of some kind.
Ahead of Wycombe’s clash against Swansea at the weekend, it was stated that the 21-year-old was ‘undergoing assessments’, while prior to a 2-1 win over Bristol City on Wednesday night, he was described as ‘in the treatment room’.
Therefore, it looks as though the Ibrox-bound player is in the unenviable position of being both out of favour and injured.
With just three games remaining in the Championship season, it looks unlikely that he’ll receive much more, if any, playing time before his move to Rangers.
