Newcastle midfielder Haris Vuckic comments on his future, amid Rangers interest

The Newcastle midfielder has been linked with a return to Rangers.

Vuckic is reportedly wanted by Rangers, and he has told Nogo Mania what kind of step he wants to next make in his career.

He said: “It’s true, I'm leaving [Newcastle]. That's best. I spoke with the coach, he didn't see me in their plans, so we all decided it would be best for me. I want to go somewhere where I'm going to play. My goal is to play. I want to play for the national team, just because of this, to be able to compete, it's clear that I need to play regularly at the club [I sign for].”

The same article claims that Rangers are looking to bring Vuckic back to Ibrox, but this time on a permanent deal following his loan spell last term.

The Slovenian international was one of a number of Newcastle players to make the move north of the border in the January 2015 transfer window, and the midfielder was the only one to truly make an impact.

He became a quick fans favourite with nine goals in 22 games, and many want to see him back with the Gers this season.

With him confirming that he is set to leave St James’ Park this summer, it would be no surprise to see Vuckic available for a budget fee. Rangers have strengthened well already since the appointment of Mark Warburton as manager, but it is easy to suggest that the 22-year-old would be a welcome addition to their squad.
