Glasgow Rangers’ move for Norwich City midfielder Kenny McLean could be back on after Daniel Farke revealed he could be back from his injury as early as Christmas.
McLean could be available
The £2.88m-valued Scotland international (Transfermarkt) twisted his knee and suffered a meniscus tear in a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough earlier this month. This is the kind of injury that can sometimes keep players out for four to five months, seemingly leaving a deal with Rangers dead in the water.
However, Canaries manager Farke has delivered some surprising news, saying that McLean could be back an awful lot sooner. He explained:
“For the long term, some good news.
“Kenny McLean could have been out for four or five months but that’s not the case.
“He could be back around Christmas.”
Good news for a transfer?
McLean is a Rangers fan from childhood, which may be one of the reasons why he has been linked with a move to Ibrox. He has made 57 appearances for Norwich, including 37 in the Premier League last season, and he has picked up 17 caps for his country.
Would you like to sign Kenny McLean?
Had McLean been out injured for as long as was originally suggested, there would have been no point in Steven Gerrard and co making a move for the 28-year-old. However, now that he could be fit as early as this month, McLean could still be acquired in January to give the 54-time Scottish champions that extra boost as they look to get their hands on a first piece of major silverware since 2011.
