Rangers midfielder Jordan Jones is reportedly to secure a permanent move to a club in the EFL in the summer according to Football Insider.
Jones is currently on loan with League One side Sunderland, and has made two appearances for the Black Cats, as they look to win promotion back into the Championship this term.
The midfielder has been with Rangers since 2019, and has gone on to make 19 first-team appearances in total for the Scottish giants, although he has found game time hard to come by in recent seasons with Steven Gerrard’s side.
Sunderland are currently sat seventh in the League One table, and are two points adrift of the play-off positions heading into their final 21 matches of this year’s campaign.
Football Insider also claim that Rangers are willing to move Jones on in the summer for a fee believed to be lower than £1 million.
Jones has previously been on the books with Middlesbrough, before moving to Scottish side Kilmarnock back in 2016.
He made his Sunderland debut against the MK Dons, before making his league debut as a second-half substitute in their recent draw with Russel Martin’s side once again.
Sunderland are set to return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Shrewsbury Town in the Football League Trophy.
Were these former Sunderland players left or right footed?
I’m not surprised to hear this.
Jones evidently won’t be offered a new contract with Rangers as he’s not featured enough to warrant a new deal anytime soon.
I think the Gers made the right call in moving him out on loan for the remainder of this year’s campaign, as it puts him in the ‘shop window’ for any potential suitors to sign him in the summer.
It’ll be interesting to see if Sunderland look at making a permanent move for him, but it seems likely that it’ll depend on how much of an impact he makes with Lee Johnson’s side in his loan spell at the Stadium of Light this term.
