Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack could agree pre-contract switch in January

Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack may be tempted to agree a pre-contract switch in January, according to a report from The Scottish Sun.

The dynamic midfielder, who scored a cracking goal in the Scottish Cup final against Hearts last season, has a contract at Ibrox until 2023.

The report (24 June) suggests that it is “unlikely” the 30-year-old would want to move on from Rangers and could see out his career.

However, if there’s a good offer on the table, he could yet leave.

Get him new contract

The former Aberdeen midfielder has established himself as a key player for the club since joining in 2017.

He has struggled with injury problems, but whenever he took the pitch, the Scottish midfielder was a class apart.

Under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, he played a big role towards the end of the season, helping the club reach the finals of the Europa League.

Rangers have done well so far to keep hold of their key players. Connor Goldson followed Steven Davis to pen a new deal at the club, while veteran keeper Allan McGregor extended his stay as well.

However, there are some players who are in the final year of their deal, and the club need to make a big decision on their futures.

The likes of Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Jack are on that list.

While the Bears could be willing to part ways with the other three, where they can recoup a decent amount of money, the same can’t be said about Jack.

It makes sense for the Gers to hand him a new deal at some point within this year, if not now.

In other Rangers news, contract talks with a key player have hit a new impasse with a summer exit now on the cards.
