Rangers winger Jordan Jones has been “given permission” to discuss a move away from Ibrox, according to the Northern Echo.
The local newspaper, which is based in the North East of England, claims that the Northern Ireland international does not have a future with the Light Blues.
Jones was left out of the matchday squad for the 1-0 win against Aberdeen yesterday but manager Steven Gerrard did say after the match that the 25-year-old is still in his plans:
“Jordan he has come back, trained hard and been focused. I don’t know where that noise [about moving clubs] has come from, but it certainly hasn’t come from our side. Jordan just needs to keep his head down and keep on working hard. What will be, will be.”
However, it appears his time in Scotland is coming to an end. Middlesbrough are said to be favourites to re-sign the winger who came through their academy.
Boro will, though, face stiff competition from Stoke City whose manager Michael O’Neill has worked with Jones closely during his time with Northern Ireland.
Blackburn is the other potential destination with Rovers boss Tony Mowbray also believed to be very keen on snapping up the player.
