Birmingham City and Middlesbrough are rumoured to be vying for the services of Wes Foderingham, the Glasgow Rangers No. 2 goalkeeper, according to the Daily Mail.

In 2015, the Gers stopper was linked with a move to St Andrew’s when he was leaving Swindon Town, but it never came to fruition.

The former England U19’s stopper was good enough to join a team the size of Rangers, where he has been a success.

Foderingham is a very good keeper and extremely unlucky that Allan McGregor wanted to come back to Scotland and Rangers.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are tracking the 28-year-old, who has been on the club’s radar before.

Although he loves life in Scotland, Foderingham has been forced to play second fiddle to McGregor .

He has only made four appearances in league and cup games this season, and he is far too good to sit on the Rangers bench.

Foderingham has made 110 league appearances, and won the Scottish Championship and Challenge Cup during his time at the Ibrox club.

It’s not only Birmingham who are reported to be interested in the Gers stopper, as north east side Middlesbrough and Championship rivals, could move for the goalkeeper in the winter break.

Boro could be set to lose keeper Darren Randolph back to West Ham this January, and are expected to turn to Foderingham to fill his boots.

With Blackpool manager Simon Grayson said to be looking to buy 26-year-old goalkeeper Jak Alnwick, Rangers may promote 21-year-old Robbie McCrorie.

manager Steven Gerrard is not keen to promote young players into his Rangers defence, and would probably want an experienced back-up to McGregor.

Is it the right time for young McCrorie to sit on the bench regularly at this stage of his development? I don’t think so.

It will be interesting to see Rangers’ tact in this issue, especially if Foderingham is keen to return to England to fight for regular first-team football.
