Rangers and Middlesbrough are both interested in signing Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald during the January transfer window.
Get West London reports how The Sun claim that the two clubs, along with Sheffield Wednesday, are interested in the Cottagers vice-captain who would cost around £1.5m.
Such a fee would represent a big drop with the very same paper claiming that Nottingham Forest were quoted £7m for the 29-year old when they made an enquiry to the Londoners in the summer.
McDonald has proven himself to be a fine player in the second tier over the years and is key to the passing style that Slavisa Jokanovic operates at Fulham, so you would imagine he would be reluctant to see his midfielder leave.
However, the chance for the Scot to return home and play for Rangers may appeal although question marks surrounding their finances indicate a deal may be hard to reach.
Alternatively, Tony Pulis is sure to be backed in the transfer market after his arrival at the Riverside and McDonald may think a move to Middlesbrough presents him with a more realistic opportunity of playing in the Premier League instead of staying with Fulham.
There’s no doubt that McDonald is a very capable player at this level and he would surely be a big upgrade for Rangers if they could manage to convince him to move up north.
Whether Middlesbrough need him is more debatable given the number of midfielders they have in the squad.
Either way, it’s hard to see McDonald leaving as the Whites are in a good position to mount a late play-off push and he will be key to that.
