Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough has said that he will do all he can to help Glasgow Rangers winger Jordan Jones find a new club.
The 25-year-old is currently on the books of the Gers, but it does not look like he is a part of the Ibrox outfit’s plans moving forward – he has not played a single minute under Steven Gerrard this season, whilst it has been reported that he has been told he can leave the club this summer.
Baraclough named Jones in his latest international squad, but he has suggested that the winger’s situation must be resolved as soon as possible. He said:
“Jordan is someone I have spoken to several times. I want to help players be settled at their clubs or find new clubs and be there for them to pick up a phone and speak to and if we can help them in any shape or form it is our job to do that.
“He is talented but at this moment in time Rangers is a competitive squad and Steven Gerrard has spoken to him and said he can find a new club if that comes up.
“Hopefully that can be sorted pretty soon and hopefully he can get settled into a new club, new surroundings and then he can go and perform for us like we think he can.”
This does seem to be a fair assessment from Baraclough – it is hard to see how Jones will fight his way into Gerrard’s starting XI. A new club would certainly work out well for him – he needs to find somewhere where he will play more than 15 times in a season, which was all he managed in the previous campaign.
Should Jordan Jones leave the club?
Currently valued at £540,000 by Transfermarkt, the Gers could even make a bit of money off of his sale. Hopefully, everyone involves finds a satisfying outcome.
