Rangers set to launch fresh George Edmundson bid after Oldham star makes transfer request

Rangers were knocked back after making an initial bid worth £400,000 with Oldham valuing the defender in the region of £1m.

However Express Sport understands Rangers will make a second bid of around £500,000 after the defender handed in a transfer request.

Edmundson rejected a new contract at the club last week as he looks to force a move and has gone a step a further by telling Oldham he wants out.

Rangers are battling with Derby, Portsmouth and Stoke for the 21-year-old defender but are not prepared to pay the £1m asking fee Oldham wanted to hold out for.

Rangers also want Hearts ace John Soutter but will wait until deeper into the summer to firm up their interest.

Transfers at Ibrox will depend on the movements of Alfredo Morelos and if a big fee can be secured for the striker then more money will be spent.

Rangers already have deals in place for Steven Davis to make his loan permanent, Jordan Jones to join for free and Jake Hastie to arrive from Motherwell.

Steven Gerrard though is keen for more and is close to a deal for Greg Stewart who will join when his contract expires at Birmingham.

Rangers also want Ryan Kent from Liverpool for another year but face a battle with interest from Aston Villa, Fulham and Huddersfield.

The English trio would offer a permanent move while Rangers are likely to have clinch a loan deal to see him return.

Gerrard’s relationship with Liverpool will help that cause but if Villa come in with a £10m-plus bid it would be difficult to turn down.

Gerrard has also sparked fear among the Rangers following by discussing James Tavernier’s future and admitting there will be interest in the club captain again this summer.

“There have been calls about Tav with clubs interested and I’m sure there still is,” he said.

“Whenever a transfer window opens, there’s interest in Tav. He has been so consistent and, for me as a manager, he has been there for every game and every training session.

“The reality is, and I probably shouldn’t be saying this, every player has his price. Every manager up and down the UK has the same issues.

“But I can’t be any clearer, I want my best players to stay at Rangers and Tav certainly comes into that bracket.”
