Premier League side Brighton have “moved the goalposts” on attacker Jamie Murphy’s proposed move to Rangers, according to a reliable journalist.
Sunday Mail chief football writer Scott McDermott claims that new details have to be “ironed out” but the Gers are still “hopeful” Murphy will sign for the Gers and join their winter training camp in Florida.

“Chat is that Brighton have moved goalposts slightly on Murphy deal so details to be ironed out,” McDermott posted on his personal Twitter account.
“Rangers still hopeful he’ll sign and fly out to America.”
Murphy arrived in Glasgow on Thursday afternoon before undergoing a medical but is yet to be confirmed as the Gers’ second signing of the transfer window.
The Light Blues jetted out to Florida from Edinburgh airport earlier on Saturday as they head out for a training camp before facing Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro in the Florida Cup.
It’s unclear quite how Brighton have “moved the goalposts” although it doesn’t appear to have been anything which would completely de-rail the Gers’ bid to sign the former Motherwell and Sheffield United winger.
The Light Blues have already secured the signing of former Manchester United midfielder Sean Goss on a season-long loan from Championship side Queens Park Rangers as well as agreeing a permanent deal with on-loan defender Declan John.
In other Rangers transfer news, Rangers are battling a Championship club for the signature of this 12-goal striker.
