Four EFL clubs are expressing an interest in Rangers winger Jordan Jones after manager Steven Gerrard gave the “green light” for the player to leave Ibrox.
That’s according to Football League World, who have attributed League One trio Ipswich Town, Sunderland and Wigan Athletic with an interest.
Championship outfit Blackpool are the fourth club said to have an interest in signing the Northern Irish international winger.
The report also claims that Ipswich Town have “muscled ahead” in the race for the winger, who the report claims will only be brought to the EFL on loan.
The Tractor Boys have already made a move for a Rangers player this week having signed central defender George Edmundson from Ibrox.
Town spent a fee reported to be around £1m [Daily Record] to sign Edmundson on a four-year deal but it is a loan move they are reportedly pursuing for Jones.
Interestingly, Edmundson is the player with whom Jones was caught up in a Covid-19 storm with last season having breached rules to attend a house party in Glasgow’s west end.
Both players were given seven-match bans before being farmed out to Derby County (Edmundson) and Sunderland (Jones).
Jones, 26, joined Rangers in 2019 after signing a pre-contract agreement from Kilmarnock but has struggled to make a lasting impression on the side.
The winger has made 19 appearances for Rangers, scoring only once and laying on two assists.
Rangers fans have been sending their best to George Edmundson after the big defender left Ibrox with Jones potentially set to join him at Portman Road.
