Rangers target Josh Windass will leave Accrington Stanley in January, confirms Dean Windass

Rangers are hoping to sign Josh Windass in January.

Rangers target Josh Windass is set to leave Accrington Stanley in January, his father Dean has told the Daily Record.

Dean Windass, the former player, said: “Josh is doing very well and there’s a lot of speculation. He’ll be away from Accrington in January. I don’t know where but there’s a lot of interest.”

This has confirmed that Windass is set to leave Accrington Stanley in January, amid interest from Rangers.

The Scottish Championship club are closing in on making an offer for Windass, with the Press and Journal reporting that they are pushing ahead with their interest with the January transfer window getting closer.

These latest comments hand a boost to the Gers, as they hope to sign a player who has excelled in League Two this season.

Windass has scored 11 goals in 21 games, regularly appearing as an attacking midfielder. However, he can also play in a deeper holding role, as well as a makeshift striker if needed.

His all-action midfield play looks to be perfectly suited to Mark Warburton’s 4-3-3 system, and signing the youngster would be another step in Warburton’s plans to build a team who will only improve as the club look to challenge Celtic in the Premiership.

Windass looks to have a wealth of potential which he is already going someway to fulfil, and moving to Rangers to work under Warburton could be perfect to ensure his career reaches it’s potential pinnacle.
