According to Football Insider, Rangers have rejected multiple bids for defender George Edmundson who spent the second half of last season on loan art Derby County.

Edmundson joined Derby on deadline day in the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old went on to make ten appearances for the Rams, starting the final day 3-3 draw with Sheffield Wednesday which helped preserve Derby’s Championship status.

The Gers have Connor Goldson, Filip Helander, Jack Simpson and Leon Balogun at centre back, whilst Nikola Katic will return from injury this summer.

Football Insider claimed in April how Rangers will let him leave for £1 million.

But the same editorial now say the Scottish Champions have rejected multiple bids for the former Oldham Athletic defender with several English clubs keen.

Derby would surely love to have him back at Pride Park. However, the EFL charges and takeover talk may currently restrict the Rams’ activity in the transfer market.

Derby could head into pre-season without any recognised senior central defenders.

Edmundson, Teden Mengi and Matt Clarke have all returned to their parent clubs after loan spells at Derby. Curtis Davies and Andre Wisdom, meanwhile, are out of contract.

Manager Wayne Rooney has a big job on his hands to rebuild the side.
