Middlesbrough are plotting a January for Jordan Jones, according to Football Insider.
The 26-year-old came through the ranks at the Riverside Stadium where he was regarded as a top talent before released in 2016.
After two years with Kilmarnock he joined Scottish giants Rangers – a move that hasn’t quite worked out for him despite being described by Steven Gerrard as ‘a top player’.
While not being to nail down a starting spot Jones has also felt the wrath of the club after being found to have breached COVID-19 regulations by attending a party.
It seems that this controversy has been the final straw with the Teessiders ready to offer him a chance to revive his career.

Rangers are open to letting the player leave and are expecting to attract an offer of no more than £800k to sell the player.
It’s claimed that Middlesbrough are looking for attacking reinforcements in January and given his availability a move to bring back their former youngster could be appealing.
This could be a bit of a gamble for Middlesbrough.
While there’s no doubting the quality that Jordan Jones possesses, the label of being a trouble-causer seems to be hanging over his head.
Perhaps a fresh start under Neil Warnock is exactly what is needed, but give his track record it’s a move that the Teessiders will need to be very careful with.
