Exclusive: McNamara touts senior Ibrox exit as Rangers hold transfer talks with colossus
Jackie McNamara says that Rangers look to be preparing to let Wes Foderingham leave the club as they make a move to sign Leeds United keeper Kamil Miazek.
The former Celtic and Scotland international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes Steven Gerrard is unlikely to keep their current number two on past the end of this season.
As revealed exclusively by Football Insider, the Gers have been held discussions with 23-year-old Miazek over a potential move to Ibrox, including talks over a contract offer.
McNamara says that with Foderingham’s contract running out in the summer, he believes the Light Blues are preparing for his exit and see the Leeds stopper as an ideal replacement.
“It maybe tells you that they’re making space for Foderingham at some point, whether it be in summer that he’s leaving,” McNamara told Football Insider.
“His contract’s up and stuff so maybe they’re just putting things in place for that. I’m sure they’d have rather (he want for a transfer fee), it just depended on whether someone was in for him.”
Foderingham has been firmly second-choice behind Allan McGregor this season, with just five appearances under his belt across all competitions this season.
Miazek, who stands at a colossal 6ft 4in between the sticks, has never played for Leeds’ first-team, with Kiko Casilla and Illan Meslier ahead of him in the pecking order.
