Glen Kamara could well end up moving to Rangers during the January transfer window, after his manager Jim McIntyre said it would be his preferred option to see the player make the switch early.
Kamara of course has already signed a pre-contract to move to Ibrox, signing up for four years from the end of the current season.
McIntyre though has confirmed more discussions will take place with regards to his immediate future, uncertain that him staying at Dens Park would be the best situation for anyone.
As quoted by The Courier, the Dark Blues boss said:
Glen has signed a pre-contract with Rangers and that’s where it lies at the moment – he will go there in the summer. But when pre-contracts are signed you never know where it might lead to.
It is early in the window and he has got the move to Rangers agreed for the summer but that might change, we just don’t know.
Ideally you would like to agree something because I think when a player decides to move – again it depends on what sort of mentality they have got – are they strong enough to stay and play?
I don’t want to say it would be best for all parties (if he moved now) because Glen is a Dundee player until something else is agreed so we will have more discussions and that’s all I can say on that.
Clearly Dundee are ready to do business and it doesn’t sound like they will hold Rangers to ransom when it comes to agreeing some sort of small fee to see the player arrive a few months early.
Steven Gerrard has excellent options in the middle of the park already ahead of the second half of the season, but adding the Finnish international to the squad would be a definite boost and allow him to settle into life at Rangers well ahead of any European qualifiers this summer.
Will we see a deal done before the end of January?
