According to The Northern Echo, Sunderland are on the verge of completing a loan move for Glasgow Rangers winger Jordan Jones.
Jones close to move
Jones has played just three Premiership games so far this term for the Ibrox outfit (Transfermarkt), seeing more controversy than action when he received a seven-game ban in December for breaking coronavirus regulations when he attended a house gathering (BBC).
Steven Gerrard does not seem to have him in his plans, and as such, the Black Cats are eager to take him south of the border on a short-term basis. In fact, it appears the 26-year-old has agreed a deal in principle.
There seemed to be hope for Jones when he netted against Motherwell, his first goal for the Ibrox outfit, earlier this season. However, his flaunting of quarantine rules put an end to his resurgence with the 54-time Scottish champions, and he has unsurprisingly not played since.
Should Jordan Jones leave the club?
One goal and two assists in 19 appearances in all competitions is not good enough for a club with aspirations like the Gers. With 12 goals throughout his career, he has never been a marksman, but he is surely better than what he has shown with his current employers. Clearly, Gerrard does not see him playing a role in the first-team between now and the end of the season – as such, this is a deal that works for all involved.
