Rangers: Dion Sanderson move “would make some sense”

Rangers: Dion Sanderson move “would make some sense” -Follow up

Glasgow Rangers completing the signing of Dion Sanderson “would make some sense”, according to a claim from transfer expert Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Sanderson linked with Rangers

The 23-year-old has become a key figure on loan for English Championship outfit Birmingham City this season, making 24 starts in the division and winning 1.9 aerial duels per game, better than all but four Rangers players.

Sanderson has been linked with a move to Ibrox this month, as Light Blues manager Michael Beale looks to bring in players who are ideal for his style of play.

The Wolves-owned defender is contracted on loan at Birmingham until the end of the season, although a January move elsewhere is possible if he is recalled from his loan spell.

The Latest: Journalist talks up Sanderson move

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones talked up the idea of Sanderson moving to Ibrox, believing that the defender would be a good fit for Beale’s Rangers.

The journalist said:

“It’s a tricky one given his current loan situation, but his profile does fit with the foresight of Beale and the team around him.

“It has been expected since he came to the job that he would draw on experience and contacts within the Football League to find talent that would fit and be elevated within the SPFL. So again, with all that in mind, it does seem one that would make some sense.”

The Verdict: Ideal January addition

This is indeed a tricky situation, considering that Birmingham expect Sanderson to stay put until the summer, but he could be an excellent signing by Rangers if they can get a deal over the line this month.

The 23-year-old has shown that he can excel in a notoriously tough division, and his match averages of 2.5 clearances and 1.7 tackles in the Championship this season highlight his defensive quality. For context, those returns would place him second and fourth respectively at Ibrox.

Depth is essential in Beale’s squad, and the manager could see Sanderson as a great option to provide centre-back competition for the likes of Connor Goldson and Ben Davies, having been hailed as a ‘Rolls-Royce‘ player by his former Sunderland boss Lee Johnson.
