Jordan Rossiter has set his sights on a permanent English-club transfer after Rangers announced his departure, Football Insider has learned.

The Light Blues revealed last week Rossiter is one of six senior players who will leave when his contract expires in the coming weeks.

A recruitment source with knowledge of Rossiter’s situation has told Football Insider he is open to offers but would be keen on returning down south on a full-time basis.

The central midfielder, 23, has spent the season on loan at English League One club Fleetwood Town after failing to make an impact in Glasgow.

Signed by former manager Mark Warburton in 2016 on a free transfer from Liverpool, he has failed to live up to expectations or prove good value for a lucrative four-year contract.

That has been partly due to a series of serious injuries, including a knee problem that has really held him back.

But Rossiter can be confident of offers from English lower league clubs despite the unprecedented financial chaos in the game.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought great uncertainty, with EFL clubs in the Championship, League One and League Two facing uncertain futures.

 

 

Nevertheless, Rossiter has showed encouraging signs after spells at League Two outfit Bury last season and Fleetwood in the current campaign.

The midfielder has made 15 league starts among 19 appearances for Joey Barton’s side this term but last played in November due to a serious knee injury.

In other Rangers news, it can be REVEALED that the club have opened talks to sign Liverpool-born forward sensation.
