English club monitoring situation of Rangers 23-year-old - report
By Harvey Byrne
English Championship club Hull are monitoring the situation of midfielder Josh Windass at Rangers, according to a report.
News outlet HITC has claimed that the Tigers are considering a move for the 23-year-old, who only made the switch to Ibrox last summer.
The young attacker was one of manager Mark Warburton’s many signings in the 2016 summer window, joining on a pre-contract deal from English League Two club Accrington.
However, he struggled to make an impact in Glasgow with a return of just five assists and one goal in 27 appearances in all competitions.
March appointment Pedro Caixinha has also already brought in five senior players this summer and is expected to bring in more, which could push Windass down the club’s pecking order.

This has led to Hull eyeing the attacker, who is the son of Tigers great Dean Windass.
The recently relegated club are expected to overhaul their own squad this summer with Leonid Slutsky being appointed manager over the weekend.
It is believed that Windass himself wants to play at as high a level as possible if he does bring an end to his Rangers career this summer and father Dean may put in a good word for Hull.
Football Insider verdict:
With all of the players heading into Rangers this summer it is hard to see where players such as Windass fit into the squad. The attacker had a less than impressive debut season in Glasgow and it is unlikely that fans will lose too much sleep if he does leave. Windass was formerly a bright prospect at Accrington and a return to similar surroundings in England could help him rediscover that past title. Therefore, a deal which could see Windass go to Hull would be the best for all parties.
