Top-flight forward hopeful of contract offer as Leeds plot swoop - reports
Josh Windass has no intention of leaving Rangers amid interest from Leeds United, according to a report.
The Daily Record are claiming that Windass wants to remain at Rangers after earlier reports from the Daily Record indicated that Leeds were plotting a swoop for the attacker this month.
The Light Blues turned down a bid of £500,000 from Preston for Windass in December and it is said that United’s offer would have been higher.
The story also reports that Gers director of football Mark Allen may well hold talks with the forward about signing a new contract, but these talks may not occur until after the January transfer window closes.
It is understood that Windass is hopeful he will get an contract offer soon though.
The 24-year-old joined the Light Blues from Accrington Stanley in 2016 and has been a mainstay of the Gers side this season in the Scottish top-flight.
Football Insider verdict
The most interesting aspect of this story is the part about Windass’ new contract. The player may well want to remain at Ibrox but it seems like the Gers are hedging their bets by putting the talks off until after the January window closes. This may well indicate that Rangers could well sell the player if the price is right. The earlier bid from Preston wasn’t enough for the Light Blues and it will be interesting if they go in for the player once again later this month. If no further bids are made in January then you expect the player to get his wish to stay at Ibrox to help the Gers try to return to the top of the Scottish Premiership.
