Wes Foderingham has recently claimed that he could leave Rangers as he is fed up with sitting on the bench behind Allan McGregor. Now, reports on Monday could see him leave the club.
Foderingham told Sky Sports News after starring in Rangers’ 2-0 Old Firm win over Celtic, that he will be holding talks with Steven Gerrard at the end of the season over his future at Ibrox.
“I see myself as a No 1 goalkeeper. Sitting on the bench isn’t something that I want to do long term. The manager’s aware of that so there will be talks at the end of the season. We’ll see what we can do,” Foderingham said.
The 28-year-old has managed just seven appearances all season, since Gerrard brought McGregor in. It is understandable to see why he may look to move this summer, but those talks may now have been decided.
That is because Rangers are interested in a move for Jurgen Klinsmann’s son, Jonathan, according to the Scottish Sun. The 22-year-old is out of contract at German side Hertha Berlin.
The two-time USA Under-23 international has failed to make a single appearance for Hertha this season, making the bench on only two occasions. He truly knows how Foderingham will be feeling.
There is plenty of hype surrounding Klinsmann, though – and not only because he is the son of Jonathan. He has been linked with plenty of moves to the Premier League in his young career.
With Klinsmann set to leave Hertha and Rangers seemingly leading the race to land him, it looks as though the signing for the American could make talks with Foderingham obvious. The Englishman looks set to leave.
