Ibrox Sources: Rangers secure recall option as Englishman finalises exit for 19/20
By Pete O’Rourke
Rangers have secured a mid-season recall option in Jak Alnwick’s imminent loan move to Blackpool, Football Insider has learned.
The goalkeeper, 26, is on the verge of joining the League One club for the 2019-20 campaign after Football Insider revealed earlier today he has completed a medical and agreed terms.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Alnwick is switching to Blackpool on season-long loan but there is a recall clause in the deal allowing Rangers to bring him back in January if needed.
There is now a strong possibility that the Englishman has played his last game for the Light Blues and will not add to the 11 appearances he has made since being signed from Port Vale for £300,000 in January 2017 when Mark Warburton was manager.
Interest in Alnwick has come from multiple Football League clubs, but new Blackpool manager Simon Grayson has won the race for the proven shot-stopper’s signature.

He spent 2018-19 on loan at Scunthorpe United, where he made 43 appearances in all competitions, all of which were starts, as they were relegated from League One.
Alnwick’s contract at Rangers is due to expire next summer.
