Rangers centre-back Connor Goldson could bring an end to his time at Ibrox during the summer transfer window, according to journalist Chris Jack.
The Lowdown: Goldson a great servant for Rangers
However, the defender’s current deal expires at the end of the season, and it could be that he moves on to pastures new after four years in Glasgow.
The Latest: Summer move mooted for Goldson
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jack claimed that Goldson could return to England in the summer, rather than extending his stay at Ibrox.
The journalist stated: “I think the timing is probably right. If Connor fancies another crack at England, it’s going to be this summer.”
The Verdict: Time to move on?
While Goldson remains a key figure for Rangers, a summer exit could end up making sense for all parties following four years at the club.
The Englishman turns 30 later this year, so offering him an extension on his current contract could be a risk, with his best years unlikely to be ahead of him. Also, as Jack has hinted, from the player’s perspective he might view this as his last chance to get a lucrative move back to England, so a summer exit seems very much plausible.
That money could instead be put towards bringing in a younger centre-back option as Giovanni van Bronckhorst looks to build into the future rather than just the present.
