Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall says there is a “possibility” that Nnamdi Ofoborh and Jack Simpson could seal their moves to Rangers within the next day or so.
Speaking about the pair’s future at a press conference yesterday, Tindall revealed both players had already made up their minds about their futures, suggesting the two had signed pre-contract agreements with the Light Blues.
Simpson and Ofoborh are free to leave on free transfers in the summer when their current deals expire but, when asked whether the duo could end up moving to Ibrox this month instead, Tindall replied:
“It’s a possibility. It’s something that has happened in the past 24-48 hours in a sense of how quickly that’s moved on. What happens in the next 24-48 hours, who knows? It’s football, things move very quickly but it’s something that’s obviously not completely in our control. But if they do (come in earlier) and there’s an opportunity there, then I’m sure we will look at it.”
Gers boss Steven Gerrard has hinted that there could be some imminent transfer business, and it appears he was referring to Simpson and Ofoborh.
It was reported last week that the Scottish club were keen on taking Ofoborh in January, with a bid of £300,000 likely to be enough to secure his services, but there was less confidence about Simpson. However, Tindall’s comments suggest a double deal could be in the offing.
