AFC Bournemouth

Championship club set to sign 21-year-old amid Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday transfer links

Published

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh is involved in a real deadline day tussle, with both Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday among other clubs seemingly battling it out to sign him.

But it has now emerged – per Football Insider – that he’s agreed to re-join Wycombe Wanderers, who he spent a season on loan at in the 2019/20 campaign as the Chairboys gained promotion to the second tier via the play offs.

Ofoborh’s January saga started when he was linked with a move to Charlton Athletic, but manager Lee Bowyer admitted that bigger clubs were interested in the 21-year-old and it was unlikely he would end up at The Valley.

And not too long later, it was claimed that both Ofoborh and his Bournemouth team-mate Jack Simpson were both heading north of the border to Rangers on pre-contract arrangements, which would kick-in in the summer.

Whilst Simpson has been confirmed to become a Ger in July, Ofoborh hasn’t put pen-to-paper on anything, and whilst he could still sign a deal with Rangers, it looks like he will spend the rest of the season at Adams Park.

Wycombe were founded in 1887

Ofoborh wasn’t ever-present for the Chairboys last season by any means, but he played a key part in their promotion and scored in the first leg of their play off semi-final against Fleetwood Town.

A return to familiar surroundings where he should get plenty of game-time between now and May has probably seemed very attractive as he still weighs up his summer options.

The Verdict

This is actually a really sensible move from Ofoborh if correct, and it gives him a chance to assess every single option available to him between now and the end of the season.

Getting regular minutes at Wycombe – something he won’t get at the Cherries – could develop him into an even better player for next season, and that could be to the benefit of Rangers should they eventually get a pre-contract over the line.

This is great for both the player and Wycombe, who may be bottom of the league but they certainly aren’t relegation certainties just yet.
