Norwich City attacker Steven Naismith is willing to play for free in order to push through a move to Rangers during the January transfer window.
The Scotland international has 18 months left on his current deal at Carrow Road, however according to the Scottish Sun, Naismith is prepared to sacrifice his wages until the end of the season in order to return to Ibrox.
The 31-year old won six trophies during five successful seasons in Glasgow before and although many fans were unhappy with comments made after he left the club, Naismith is desperate to return.
Having moved to Norwich during their time in the Premier League, Naismith is believed to be commanding a hefty wage which would put him out of reach for Rangers, who are operating on a strict budget.
Given that large salary, Norwich too would appear open to allowing Naismith to leave on a free as it would get his wages off their books.
He has made only three appearances for the Yellows this season and isn’t in boss’ Daniel Farke’s plans.
This seems as though it would be a good move for all concerned. Naismith has made enough money already during his career and has openly stated his next move will be about him enjoying football again.
Clearly, given the fact he will play for free, he wants that to be for Rangers. The Glasgow club won’t be able to afford Naismith on his current wage – or anywhere near it.
Norwich have tightened their budgets over the past 12 months and would also be glad to see the back of Naismith, who hasn’t delivered in his time at the club, for various reasons.
