‘He could thrive there’ – Rangers in race to seal transfer deal: Opinion



Rangers are interested in signing Oldham Athletic defender George Edmundson, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old is an important player for Oldham and has made 79 appearances for the League Two club, after progressing through their academy.

The report states that Oldham have already rejected offers for the highly-rated defender, who is thought to be keen to play at a higher level.

Oldham have already rejected offers for the player and are aware of interest from Hull City, Stoke City, Sunderland and Fleetwood Town.

So, would Edmundson be a good signing for Rangers? We discuss…

Louie Chandler 

“I think so.

“Bringing in a player of Edmundson’s hype can only be a good thing, whether it works out in the end or not.

“And you would have to say that Rangers are much more appealing than either Hull or Stoke.”

Jacob Potter

“He could thrive there.

“Gerrard has already shown that he’s willing to give promising youngsters a chance in the first-team and Edmondson would certainly be a good signing.

“They face stiff competition to land his signature though, and it would be a great bit of business if Rangers can sign him.”

Toby Wilding

“This would be a good signing.

“Edmundson has shown this season that he is more than ready to step up a level, and you wonder whether Rangers may just appeal to him a little bit more than those other clubs interested.

“Going from League Two to European football in a single season would be a remarkable rise for the 21-year-old.”

George Brooks

“Edmundson is a talented young defender and would be a good signing for Rangers.

“He’s been an important player for Oldham over the past couple of seasons.

“At 21, his best years are still ahead of him and he could have what it takes to become a to player.

“The defender is thought to be keen to play at a higher level and may be tempted by a move to Rangers, although he could potentially favour a move to the Championship over the Scottish Premiership.”
