Foderingham chose to move to Rangers, despite interest from Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Speaking to the official Rangers website, Wes Foderingham has explained the reasoning behind his move to Ibrox, after signing a three-year deal.

The former England youth international said: “The long-term vision is what made me choose Rangers. This is a massive club – the most successful in the world trophies-wise, and I just wanted to come to be a part of that. We want to get back to the Premiership and challenge, and there is European football beyond that too.”

Foderingham, 24, arrives at Rangers to become first-choice goalkeeper in Mark Warburton’s new-look side, and is keen to achieve the aims of reaching the club’s former heights.

He has admitted that joining the club is down to their past success, and although they are still in the Championship, the potential for future successes.

The ‘keeper wants to see the team back in the top flight at the earliest opportunity - next season - whilst European football is even in his mindset.

Foderingham is a great signing for Rangers, having proven himself in League One, and been linked this summer with a free move to Nottingham Forest, as per the Nottingham Post.

To turn down the English Championship for the Scottish second tier is a bold move - considering its reputation and quality of football - but Foderingham sees the potential at Ibrox, and chose to move to Rangers for all the success he will enjoy in the future.
