Clarets Interested In Kilmarnock Winger Jordan Jones
Glasgow Rangers will have to compete with English Premier League side Burnley in order to land Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones, according to reports by TEAMtalk.
Jones has long been a target of Rangers having a bid rejected by Killie for the player in the last January transfer window. However Steven Gerrard and his recruitment team remain interested in signing the Northern Ireland international, but now face strong competition from Burnley who will be ready to move for him next month rather than wait until the end of the season.
Given the resources Burnley have available it could be a real problem for Rangers, Jones is rated at £675,000 but his current deal expires at the end of the season. His output this term isn’t as strong as last season’s haul of four goals and ten assists, but he has provided Killie with four assists in his last nine league matches, helping them challenge towards the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
Now winning caps for his country, a budget move for the winger certainly appears to make sense, especially with other English Premier League clubs interested in bringing him back south of the border.
