Rangers table six-figure bid for international attacker, PL high-flyers ready to double it - report

Rangers have tabled a £500,000 bid for Kilmarnock attacker Jordan Jones, according to a report.
The Mirror claimed in their live transfer blog on Sunday [11:02am] that the Light Blues have made a six-figure offer for Jones, 23, but have seen it rejected by their Scottish Premiership rivals.
It is understood that Premier League high-flyers Burnley have joined the chase for the one-time Northern Ireland international and are considering an offer double of what Rangers have tabled at £1million.
The report adds that Jones is out of contract at Rugby Park at the end of the season and that Burnley are hoping to convince manager Steve Clarke to cash in on him before the January transfer window closes.
Jones has been in top form for Kilmarnock this season, making 25 appearances across all competitions and scoring three goals and supplying three assists in the process.
The Daily Record has recently reported that Norwich have jumped to the front of the queue in the race for Jones while Fulham and Hull are also interested.
Burnley are flying high in the Premier League this season though and could be the most attractive option as they currently occupy a potential Europa League qualification spot in seventh.
Football Insider verdict
Jones would be a top addition for Rangers but they will not be able to compete with the finances of a Premier League side. Sean Dyche’s Clarets are surprising everyone in the English top-flight this term and look as though they could seriously challenge for a spot in Europe. Rangers are also fighting for a Europa League spot so that should also be something for Jones to consider should he have the choice of where he wants to play. £1million will go a long way for a team like Killie though and Rangers’ opening offer is well short of that.
In other Rangers news, six senior players could be shown the door by the Light Blues this month.
