Rangers have rejected an offer from Peterborough United for the services of defender George Edmundson, according to Football Insider.
It had been reported by the Daily Record that both Peterborough and Derby County were interested in a deal to sign the 23-year-old on a permanent basis this summer.
Posh are believed to have followed up that interest with a formal offer, although Rangers have been quick to reject that bid from the Championship side.
Edmundson spent part of the 2020/21 season on loan with Derby County, and made ten appearances in all competitions for Wayne Rooney’s side.
He played his part in Derby’s survival in the second-tier, as they avoided relegation into League One on the final day of the Championship season, after drawing 3-3 with Sheffield Wednesday at Pride Park.
Peterborough United are preparing for life back in the Championship, after they won promotion under the management of Darren Ferguson last term.
They’re clearly keen to add defensive reinforcements to their squad in the near future as well, although Rangers seemingly aren’t willing to entertain any offers for his services at this stage of the summer transfer window.
Did each of these midfielders ever score a goal for Peterborough United?
I’m slightly surprised that they’ve turned down an offer for him.
If the finances weren’t right for Rangers, then that’s understandable, but you would imagine that they’ll be looking to move him on in the near future, as it’s not guaranteed that he’ll be getting regular game time under his belt anytime soon.
Peterborough should certainly consider making another offer for Edmundson, as he’s a player that could be a solid addition to their team.
He has experience of playing in the Championship recently, and that’s exactly what is needed in the Peterborough squad at this moment in time, as they look to avoid relegation back into League One.
