Former Rangers manager Alex McLeish is keen to see Dundee United midfielder Jeando Fuchs remain in Scottish football.
The Cameroon international’s contract expires at the end of the season, but he could move clubs in the January transfer window with Rangers, along with Celtic, Blackpool, Peterborough, Wigan and Stuttgart all said to be interested in the player.
McLeish snapped up Stevie Thomson from Dundee United during his time as Gers boss, as well as signing the likes of Kris Boyd from other Scottish clubs, and he thinks that keeping a talent like Fuchs is good for the Scottish Premiership:
“It is great for the Scottish game [if] they keep transfers within our divisions and in the country. Fabulous. I go back to my days at Rangers with Kris Boyd and Stevie Thomson from Dundee United. These two guys were brilliant. It’s fantastic if Fuchs can be a player who they keep within the Scottish system.”
Whether Fuchs is a genuine target for Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst and director of football Ross Wilson, we shall have to wait and see.
The midfield is not an area that really needs strengthening at the moment, although that could change if the likes of Glen Kamara were subject to offers from other teams.
