Report: Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham wanted by two Championship clubs

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is reportedly wanted by two clubs from the English second-tier.

According to the Daily Mail, Championship duo Middlesbrough and Birmingham City are both keen on the 28-year-old.

It is understood that Boro are lining up a move for the Englishman, while Birmingham have already expressed their interest.

The report explains that his contract expires at the end of the season, which means English teams are res to talk from January about a deal.

 

Foderingham has proven at Ibrox he’s a decent shot-stopper and he couldn’t be blamed if he’s looking to move on to play regularly during what should be the peak of his career.

He’s only played four senior games across all competitions this season and had to watch on from the sidelines.

Allan McGregor is the undisputed number one in Steven Gerrard’s squad this season and he also signed a new one-year contract extension on Saturday.

TBR’s View:

With Foderingham’s deal at Ibrox running down, it would be no surprise to see him go through the exit doors.

Rangers may have McGregor as their impressive option in goal, but Foderingham departing would leave a sizeable gap in the squad and the best move would be to replace him with some serious competition.

The Scottish Sun have claimed that Rangers want Portsmouth’s 26-year-old goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray and he looks like could be strong competition for McGregor further down the line.
