Rangers are ready to let youngster Kyle McClelland leave the club this summer with Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United all keen.
That’s according to The Scottish Daily Express, who claim that Rangers are ready to move the 20-year-old on this summer.
McClelland is out of contract this summer but Rangers allegedly want a sell-on clause in his exit, meaning he can still leave for free.
Rangers would be entitled to training compensation but are willing to waive that in order to get a slice of his future fee.
Three clubs are showing an interest with Championship playoff duo Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United thought to be keen.
Cardiff City are also in the race with a move to English football looking likely for the young defender.
Rangers allegedly rate McClelland highly but just can’t see him gaining first-team action with the younger Leon King emerging.
The path to first-team action seems blocked for McClelland and Rangers aren’t going to stand in his way.
McClelland, 20, has never made his first-team debut for Rangers but has been featuring for Northern Ireland’s Under-21’s.
Primarily a centre back, McClelland spent time on loan at Falkirk last season and was backed for a ‘good future’ by Lee Miller.
Southampton showed a keen interest in signing McClelland last summer for Rangers managed to keep hold of the youngster.
Fast forward a year and three more clubs have joined the race for McClelland, whose Ibrox exit looks to be only a matter of time.
Rangers will certainly hope that McClelland has a bright future ahead of him, not just because of his service to the club but because future success could land Rangers some cash thanks to a sell-on clause.
Huddersfield and Sheffield United will likely be focused on the playoffs right now, potentially giving Cardiff a chance to strike.
