Dundee United have launched a bid to sign Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter on loan – according to a report.
The Daily Express claim United want to sign the 21-year-old until the end of the season.
Rossiter has endured a tough time at Ibrox with injuries stalling his progress.
The 21-year-old is fit again and could be shipped out in a bid to get regular game-time.
According to the report, Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town are also keeping tabs on Rossiter.
Gers manager Steven Gerrard confirmed that a temporary move could happen this month.
Rossiter has managed five appearances so far this season but has been unable to shift Ryan Jack and Ross McCrorie from the starting XI.
The chance to get out and play regularly could be a massive step for Rossiter’s career after effectively losing two-and-a-half-years.
Getting a player with his pedigree would be a boost for United and could help them secure promotion back to the top flight.
The prospect of linking up with former Gers team-mates Joey Barton, Clint Hill and Jason Holt at Fleetwood could pose a problem for the Arabs.
Presumably, any move would see the Gers pick up the bulk of Rossiter’s wages as he works towards match sharpness.
With two weeks left of the transfer window, United may need to move fast to avoid someone trumping them.
