Medical scheduled: Rangers on verge of first January signing - report
QPR defender Sean Goss is on the verge of signing for Rangers, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claims that Goss, 22, is set to be the Ibrox club’s first signing of the January transfer window and is scheduled to undergo a medical with the Scottish Premiership side on Wednesday.
It is understood that QPR manager Ian Holloway has decided to put Goss up for sale this month after he struggled to earn any first-team football at Loftus Road.
The German-born centre-back, who can also play in the defensive midfield role, signed for the Rs from Manchester United in January 2017, but has since played just six times in all competitions.
Graeme Murty is now close to making his first ever signing in management after being put in charge of Rangers until the end of the season.
He is currently short of defenders with Bruno Alves expected to be sidelined for a while and it is also reported that Fabio Cardoso is set to leave Ibrox at some point this month.
Football Insider verdict
Rangers really need strengthening this month but this is a very underwhelming move. Mark Allen used to work at Manchester City so may have known a bit about Goss from playing down the road at Manchester United, but the defender really has very limited first-team experience and is a bit of a risk. Goss’ signing seems like a move that Mark Warburton would have made. An untested young Englishman from south of the border. It appears that the Gers are in very deep though now and Goss is about to become the first signing of Murty’s reign.
