Rangers star reportedly wants to leave by summer because of club’s January shortcoming

According to Football Insider, Rangers forward Josh Windass wants to leave Ibrox at the end of the season after his contract wasn’t renewed as promised in January.

The 24-year-old was told by the club that he would be handed an improved deal last month so as to shoo off suitors and also reward him for his recent excellent displays.

English Championship sides Sheffield United, Preston North End, Wigan Athletic, Leeds United and Hull City were all said to be keen in Windass during the winter transfer window, but Rangers didn’t listen to offers.

The contract of the Englishman, who has registered 6 goals in 22 league games this term, doesn’t end until 2020, but it’s believed he has told the club he wants out at the end of the campaign.

Windass’ recent red-hot form, which has seen him bag 9 goals in his last Rangers’ 14 appearances – including an hat-trick against Fraserburg during the week – is sure to attract plenty of suitors ahead of summer.

Losing the former Accrington will be a huge blow to the club, but it remains to be seen if he would accept a new deal should Rangers offer one before summer.
