Haris Vuckic: My future depends on Newcastle, Rangers stay is possible

Haris Vuckic says Newcastle will decide his future this summer.

Rangers forward Haris Vuckic has told the Daily Mail that he will wait until the summer to decide his future, given that he is scheduled to return to Newcastle.

Vuckic, 22, joined Newcastle back in 2009, but has played just 19 times for the club, spending time out on loan at Cardiff City and Rotherham United.

In February, having made just three appearances for Newcastle this season, Vuckic joined Rangers on loan until the end of the season - and few could have expected the impact he has made.

Vuckic has scored nine goals in just 14 games for Rangers, turning in a number of impressive displays for Stuart McCall's men as they push for promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Given his incredible impact at Ibrox, fans would unsurprisingly like to see the Slovenian stay in Glasgow beyond the end of the season, but that could be difficult.

The Daily Mail today reported that Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Vuckic from Newcastle, before carrying quotes from the man himself about his future - suggesting that the decision rests in the hands of Newcastle, but he knows he will have offers after his goalscoring exploits with Rangers this season.

"My future will depend on what Newcastle have to say. We’ll see in the summer," said Vuckic. "Newcastle are the ones to decide - I still have to respect them because I have a year left on my contract there. In the summer, I will have options and pick the best one for me."

"If that is Rangers...I have been enjoying it here, the fans like me and I like it here so that will be a good option. I don’t know if there would be a fee involved - I will know more in the summer," he added.
