Report: Rangers nearing January deal to bring Accrington's Josh Windass to Ibrox

Accrington Stanley

Rangers are reportedly close to agreeing a deal for Accrington ace Josh Windass.

According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers are set to agree a deal to sign Accrington star Josh Windass during the January transfer window.

The Gers snapped up 11 players over the summer, but the incredible form of title rivals Hibernian means that manager Mark Warburton may need to strengthen over during the January transfer window to ensure that Rangers end up winning the Scottish Championship.

Fans will want to see new additions made in the New Year, and it seems that Rangers are already pushing ahead with one particular deal.

The Scottish Sun report that Rangers are moving close to agreeing a January deal with Accrington for the signature of playmaker Josh Windass. 

The attacking midfielder has become one of the Football League's hottest properties this season having hit 11 goals in 21 games for Accrington, and his future has been in doubt for some time now.

The 21-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, and clubs are lining up to sign him - but it seems that Rangers are in pole position.

The Scottish Sun suggest that Rangers are close to securing a deal for Windass in January, and manager Warburton would surely love to work with a player of Windass' huge potential should a move be completed next month.
