Scunthorpe want to sign Rangers goalkeeper Jak Alnwick on a permanent transfer this summer, Football Insider understands.

The English League One club signed the 25-year-old on a season-long loan at the end of August and he has subsequently been an ever-present member of their starting XI.

A Rangers source has told Football Insider the relegation-threatened outfit have indicated they are eager to convert Alnwick’s loan into a full-time move this summer regardless of whether they stay up.

The Irons are willing to pay a six-figure sum for the keeper, who Rangers signed from Port Vale for £300,000 in January 2017.

A club source has told Football Insider Rangers will listen to offers for Alnwick this summer even if current number two Wes Foderingham returns to England after playing second fiddle to Allan McGregor all season.

The Light Blues signed Alan Firth to back up McGregor and Foderingham in the January window, and also have the highly regarded academy product Robby McCrorie on their books.

Alnwick has made just 11 appearances for Rangers but has been a mainstay for Scunthorpe this season, starting 39 consecutive league matches since his loan began at the end of August.

He has a contract with his parent club that runs until the summer of 2020 but has spoken of his desire for regular football and has stated how settled he is at the English third-tier outfit.

In other Rangers transfer news, it can be REVEALED that the club are in talks to terminate the contract of a £20,000-a-week Ibrox player.
