A number of Championship clubs have registered their interest in signing Nnamdi Ofoborh according to a recent report from Football Insider.
It is claimed by Football Insider that Scottish giants Rangers are in talks with the Bournemouth youngster over a deal that would see him join Steven Gerrard’s side at the end of the 2020/21 season on a pre-contract deal.
But the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Watford, Rotherham United, Wycombe Wanderers, Charlton, Lincoln City and Portsmouth are all believed to be keen on a deal to sign Ofoborh on a loan deal until the end of this year’s campaign.
The 21-year-old has made five appearances for Bournemouth’s first-team this season, and has seemingly caught the eye with his performances for Jason Tindall’s side.
Bournemouth are currently sat sixth in the Championship table after a 3-1 defeat to Reading in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Friday evening.
The Cherries are believed to be resigned to losing Ofoborh in the summer, and are prepared to loan him out on Deadline Day, before the transfer window slams shut at 11pm.
Ofoborh can operate in both defence and midfield, and would be a versatile option to have in any squad of the teams that are believed to be interested in landing his signature on a temporary basis.
Bournemouth are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they host relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday, in what could potentially be a tricky test for the Cherries.

He could be a solid signing for any of the teams interested in a deal for him.
Ofoborh has struggled for consistent game time in the Championship with AFC Bournemouth, which doesn’t come as a surprise to me, especially given that Jason Tindall already has some stronger and more experienced options available to him this season.
With Ofoborh seemingly heading to Rangers in the summer, it’s a good move by Bournemouth to loan him out to another club as he looks to further his development in senior football.
He’ll be keen to make a name for himself, and he could prove to be a shrewd addition for either a Championship or League One club on Deadline Day.
