Rangers goalkeeper closing on summer move

Former Ibrox youngsters Ryan Hardie and Jordan Thompson are already at Bloomfield Road, and Jak Alnwick could join them in League One.

Blackpool are ready to seal the capture of Rangers goalkeeper, according to the Blackpool Gazette, with the stopper believed to be on the brink of a move to Bloomfield Road.

It has been yet another busy summer of outgoings and incomings at Ibrox as head coach Steven Gerrard and director of football Mark Allen continue to put together a team capable of challenging bitter rivals Celtic for the Scottish Premiership.

Nine new players have arrived, hence several have had to leave to make room with the latest Daniel Candeias sealing his move to Turkey this week, following Lee Wallace, Jordan Rossiter and Ryan Hardie out the door.

And Jak Alnwick, a £250,000 signing from Port Vale back in winter of 2017, is believed to be the latest fringe player to wave goodbye.

The Gazette reports that Blackpool ready set to sign the former Newcastle United youngster with a deal potentially set to be confirmed on Tuesday.

Jak Alnwick is expected to join on loan but, given that he does not appear to be part of Steven Gerrard’s plans, that may result in a permanent transfer.

The goalkeeper shone for Port Vale in League One and during a loan spell at Scunthorpe the last term so a Blackpool team who have already signed Hardie from the Scottish giants this summer could have the best ‘keeper in the division in time for 2019/20.
