Glasgow Rangers have a lot of talent, especially in midfield, with the likes of Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo, Scott Arfield and Steven Davis at the club.
This might see some of the other players in that position, especially the younger ones, seek a move, either on a permanent or temporarily, and it looks like one player might leave sooner rather than later.
According to The Scottish Sun, Oldham Athletic, who play in England in League Two, are trying to land Jamie Barjonas on loan. The Glasgow Rangers midfielder is only 21, and is around the first team set up at Ibrox as he was an unused substitute against Hibernian last weekend, per Transfermarkt.
Oldham are managed by Harry Kewell, who used to play alongside Gers manager Steven Gerrard at Liverpool, and Gerrard is very keen for Barjonas to get some more consistent first-team football.
There is clearly potential for Barjonas to become a first-team player at the Gers as he has featured for the Scottish U19 side four times and Gerrard sees him as a bench player at the club currently despite him still being quite young. However the fact that he is yet to feature in the Scottish Premiership this season highlights that there is definitely some room for improvement and therefore a loan move could be ideal.
Not only will the midfielder play consistently, but it is also his chance to impress and show that when given the chances he can perform.
He has managed 49 appearances throughout his career, with eight of these being for the youth sides at the Gers, per Transfermarkt, and he has scored five and assisted six. He has already played in England before for Bury so he should easily be able to adapt to Oldham and with Gerrard knowing Kewell well, this is definitely a move that benefits all parties.
