Steven Gerrard allowed Andy King to cut short his Rangers spell after a difficult five months at Ibrox.

Rangers new signing Andy King is seen during the Scottish League Cup second round match between East Fife and Rangers at Bayview Stadium  on August 18, 2019 in Methil, Scotland.

Andy King is being linked with an English Championship club after leaving Steven Gerrard's Rangers earlier this month.

As a result, Gerrard sanctioned his early return to Leicester City, with central midfield one of Rangers' strongest departments.

 

And according to Examiner Live, Huddersfield Town 'could swoop' for the Wales international.

Gerrard has made no secret of his desire to trim his Rangers squad this month and King's former Ibrox rivals Greg Docherty and Matt Polster are among the players tipped to depart.

King has spent his entire professional career on Leicester's books, and had loan spells at Swansea City and Derby County as well as Ibrox.

However, the 31-year-old's Foxes contract is due to expire this summer.
