According to the Daily Star, Kilmarnock have rejected an offer from Rangers for Jordan Jones. The same source says that Rangers’ bid was around £350,000, which has been considered too low by the Kilmarnock’ officials.
During the last couple of days, some media reported that Rangers’ boss Graeme Murty considered making a move for the 23-year-old winger as he looks to improve his attacking line.
Jones’ contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, and there were no contacts between the parties regarding a potential extension.
The former Middlesbrough player has a decent season with Killie, as he played 20 games, scoring three goals, and providing two assists.
Manager Steve Clarke has recently described Rangers offer as inappropriate, suggesting Kilmarnock had no reason to even think about the potential sale of their prospect.
“There’s been a bid, nowhere near acceptable. I would be a little bit sad if I was the player, to be honest, that the bid was so low. It was an easy one for the club to turn down,” he explained.
Kilmarnock are indeed looking to offload the midfielder, but only at a fair price. So, Rangers will have to raise their offer if they want to land Jones at Ibrox this January.
