Rangers Keen On Tying Up Double Deal For 14M Rated Championship Pair

Rangers are holding talks with Preston North End pair Ben Davies and Daniel Johnson, according to reports in the UK.

The two players are allowed to discuss signing pre-contract agreements, with their current deals expiring in June, and it seems the Light Blues have stepped up their attempts to snap up the duo.

Johnson was the subject of a bid from the Gers in the summer but Preston demanded £4m at the time, and the Scottish club decided to step away from the deal.


Davies was valued at an even higher amount. The centre-back was reportedly the subject of a £5m offer from Bournemouth but North End opted to stand firm on their £10m valuation despite the defender’s contract running down.

Rangers could now snap up both players on a free transfer, which would be a tremendous coup for manager Steven Gerrard. Neither deal is guaranteed at this stage, though.

Preston boss Alex Neil has said they are still hopeful that Johnson will sign a new contract, while Davies has interest from a number of different clubs, including Celtic.
