Glasgow Rangers winger Jordan Jones is currently making a real name for himself at Sunderland after swapping Ibrox for the Stadium of Light in January.
The 26-year-old joined Rangers in 2019 from Kilmarnock and has made 19 appearances in light blue, scoring one goal and registering two assists.
Jones struggled for game time at Ibrox this season, and his red card against Celtic and an off-the-pitch incident last year didn’t do him any favours either.
However, the Northern Irishman has become a hero south of the border, helping Sunderland surge into automatic promotion contention from English League One.
Former Black Cats ace Stephen Elliott believes that the Wearside club should waste no time in moving for the Gers ace for what is reportedly a bargain price.
“Personally if the £600,000 price tag being mentioned for Jones is correct I feel it would be an absolute coup for the club to sign him permanently,” he wrote in the Sunderland Echo.
“Not only because of his undoubted talent, but also because he seems to be really enjoying his time at Sunderland and is tellingly a popular figure among his teammates.
“When the crowds do finally return Jordan is the type of player who will really excite the fans.
“He’s quick, he’s direct, he can score goals, and most importantly he seems to have a real desire to do well and to succeed.
“I also think he will thrive even more when the supporters return. He just seems that type of character.
“So if ‘the powers that be’ are happening to be reading this, I would strongly advise to get a deal done as soon as possible.”
Jones may have struggled for game time at Rangers this season but he’s certainly revived his career at Sunderland.
Given his contract runs until 2023, the Gers’ hand is quite strong when it comes to negotiations.
£600,000 really is a steal for a player of Jones’ calibre – surely Rangers could get much more than that if they wanted to sell him.
