Ibrox Sources: Rangers set to offload 26-yr-old for 5-figure fee
Rangers are willing to sell goalkeeper Jak Alnwick in January for a “nominal fee”, Football Insider can reveal.
The Light Blues are in the market for at least one new keeper in the upcoming window as they prepare to offload their 26-year-old, who is on a season-long loan at Blackpool, for good.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that the goalkeeper has no future at Rangers and the club are ready to listen to offers next month for a “nominal fee” of less than £100,000.
This comes after Football Insider revealed last week that talks are underway with Blackpool over Alnwick moving on a permanent deal in January.
The former England Under-20 international has made a big impression for the League One promotion hopefuls this season.
He has started all 20 of their league fixtures and conceded just 23 goals while keeping six clean sheets.

Signed by Rangers in January 2016 when Mark Warburton was manager, Alnwick was never able to secure the number one jersey at Ibrox and has spent the last two campaigns out on loan.
He was at Scunthorpe United last season before moving to another northern EFL club in Blackpool.
Rangers secured Allan McGregor to a new contract on Saturday that will run until the summer of 2021.
His number two is Wes Foderingham, whose own deal is due to expire at the end of the season to leave his future up in the air ahead of January.
