Report: Jordan Jones told he has no future at Rangers
Jordan Jones has been told by Rangers that he can leave the club this summer and four English clubs have already made contact, according to TEAMtalk.
Jones is currently in the midst of a six-month loan at Sunderland in England’s third-tier after being left an outcast by Steven Gerrard following a breach of Covid-19 protocols that saw him banned for seven games in November [BBC].
He has not played for the Gers since but has resurrected his career after moving to the Black Cats in January, scoring twice and laying on three assists to aid their charge to the Championship.
It seems that is where Jones is destined to end up after TEAMtalk reported on their website that Stoke, Middlesbrough, Barnsley and Cardiff have told the Light Blues to name their price for the 26-year-old with the winger surplus to requirements at Ibrox.
The Northern Ireland international has a contract in Glasgow until 2023 [Transfermarkt] but he could be set to cut short his stay and move south of the border.
Gers set to rake in on resurgent Jones
Who would’ve thought at the start of January that a bidding war for Jones would be emerging.
He was the forgotten man at Ibrox after his early-season indiscretions cost him his place in Gerrard’s plans.
Jones was not exactly hot property prior to his breach of protocols and 10 Premiership outings in 18 months at the club is a lowly return.
Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi are streets ahead of Jones in the Rangers roster of wingers and the clubs were probably expecting to let him go for a nominal fee to rid themselves of his wages.
But his recent resurgence as part of a Sunderland side on the rise has earned admiring glances and his stock is on the up.
It is now a case of ‘name your price’ for the Gers hierarchy and this could draw vital funds for Gerrard’s summer transfer plans.
