Josh Windass comments on his future, with Rangers reportedly eyeing January move

Accrington Stanley

Josh Windass is willing to wait before making a decision over his future.

Accrington Stanley ace Josh Windass has told BBC Sport that he will make his own decision over his future, with his father Dean telling him to leave the club.

Windass, 21, has hit ten goals in 20 games for Accrington so far this season, and his performances are beginning to attract interest.

The Sun report that Rangers are very keen on Windass, with new head of recruitment Frank McParland a big fan of the player having been calling the shots at Burnley earlier this season.

A fee of £250,000 allegedly could be enough to land Windass for Rangers in the January transfer window, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The midfielder is surely going to leave Accrington in order to join a bigger club, and father Dean Windass told the Hull Daily Mail last week that he has told his son to leave the club at the end of his contract.

With questions over his future, Windass has told BBC Sport that he - and not his father - will make the decision over his future, and is just focusing on his time at Accrington right now.

"I think he was just a bit upset by some things that have happened," said Windass. "That's the way he wants to deal with it - I didn't know he was doing it so it's up to him and that's just the way he wants to get it across. I think he feels that I'm under pressure to sign a contract but every decision I make will be my own decision, not his decision."

"There has been a lot of rumours and stuff like that but there has been nothing concrete hit the club or hit me so I just keep playing for Accrington and see what happens," he added.

An interesting aspect to think about for Rangers is that, whilst Josh will ultimately make the decision, father Dean Windass will also have some advice to give his son - and he enjoyed a fruitful spell in Scottish football.

Windass hit 31 goals in 93 games for Aberdeen, and having impressed in Scotland during his own career, he may well be keen to see his son make a similar move by joining Rangers, which would play right in to the hands of Gers boss Mark Warburton and head of recruitment McParland.
