Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has told The Glasgow Evening Times that Ryan Jack will leave the club in the summer transfer window.

Jack’s current contract with Aberdeen runs out at the end of the season, and McInnes has revealed that the 25-year-old defensive midfielder will move to another club.

The Aberdeen boss, though, has admitted that he does not know where Jack will play next season, but he has stated that there has been no formal approach from any other club.

"Others seem to know more than I do, if what I'm hearing is true, but Ryan has now informed us it's his intention to move on from Aberdeen," McInnes told The Glasgow Evening Times.

"He's informed me of that in the last couple of days. But there has been no official approach from any club with regards speaking to Ryan.

"But if he's moving on, as it looks likely now that Ryan has told me that, where he ends up I do not know.”

Boost for Rangers

McInnes’s comments will come as a massive boost to Rangers, who want to sign Jack on a free transfer in the summer.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha recently stated his interest in signing the former Scotland Under-21 international, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

As reported by HITC Sport earlier this week, Jack is poised to join the Gers after turning down offers from other clubs.

Jack is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Scottish Premiership, and if he joins Rangers, then the Gers will have a good chance of finishing second and perhaps challenging Celtic for the league title next season.
