FLEETWOOD TOWN hope to land Rangers midfielder Jordan Rossiter.
SunSport understands the League One side believe they are close to signing the 22-year-old.
Rossiter joined Gers at the same time as Trawlermen boss Joey Barton in 2016.
Now Barton has moved for his fellow Scouser as he looks to beef up his squad for the new season.
Rossiter has had an injury-prone three years at Ibrox since Mark Warburton took him from Liverpool.
He has managed just ten appearances and one goal. He joined Bury on loan in January and played 16 times.

A shame but it is what it is.

The fact that he was not involved today or in yesterday's reserve match says it all.

I wouldn't even say he was a risky signing but it's just one of those that didn't work out for either of us. If he wasn't riddled with injuries, he'd be going to someone much better than Fleetwood.

Best of British to the lad. He’s fortunate that he’s still young enough to progress up the leagues (assuming he doesn’t keep getting injured).

This is great news for us.

A relatively high earner, who didn't contribute, off the wage bill.

This is why conversely you have to give credit to the likes fo Tav and Morelos, no matter what you think of them as players, by god are they robust and proper "men". You can count on these guys over a season. Huge respect for the pair of them.

Still not sure I’m happy we’re just letting him go. Keep thinking a six month loan, then maybe extend his contract. Have a horrible feeling he’s going to be a £15m player in a few years!
Steven Gerrard doesn’t have anything against him, he clearly considers him to be behind all of the other midfielders at his disposal. That makes your horrible feeling highly unlikely to come true.

It's a shame but he's nowhere near the first eleven with the squad we have now and he's likely to be on a healthy wage that could be used to strengthen elsewhere

Rubbish absolute rubbish the fact he was on loan at Bury and is now close to joining Fleetwood pretty much explains where he is at
He was Burys best player on loan. You don’t become England under 21 captain without having some talent. I’m not saying he should be getting into our team ahead of the likes of Kamara and Jack. I just think we’re going to have been paying for him for 3 years with no benefit, and I can see him going for bigger money a few days later. I’m saying £15m, hardly big bucks in England!

I think he needs a change to move on with his career. Seems to have settled out on loan and it was great to see he was getting a right good run of games. I have no doubt Rossiter has the ability to be a very good player and a good level. I'd love for that to be with us but I do just think they change will do him good.

We have a good midfield and he probably wouldn't look out of place. The frustration of getting another injury with us might be too much for him and Rangers.

He's never kicked a ball for England U21 - let alone captained them.

I would have been more gutted at this a year ago. On the rare occasions he did feature he looked like he would end up being head and shoulders above the guys playing around him, but our midfield is much stronger now.

He'll do well where ever he goes. As someone on here said, he could find James Forrest's neck with a pass.

This is why conversely you have to give credit to the likes fo Tav and Morelos, no matter what you think of them as players, by god are they robust and proper "men". You can count on these guys over a season. Huge respect for the pair of them.
Proper men , absolute **** you are :D

Spouting pish for a change? nothing to do with being "proper men" that lad has seriously poor luck with hindering injuries. You should be banned for repetitive pish posts.

I don't think you are wrong to think this.
But he has lost a lot of playing time at a vital stage in his career.
The next two years are really a make or break period for the lad to make it at the level he was once thought capable of.
To do this he will need to play every single week.

He won't get this exposure at Ibrox and Rangers simply cannot keep investing in his potential as younger players are already pushing past him.
If we had the funds of a club like Chelsea then we could indulge that potential with patience, we don't and the truth is, the opportunity with us has passed him by.
However, for the player, it isn't the end, and you are of course correct, he could still become the player we all want him to be.

I wish him well.
I hope he becomes that player.

That third paragraph is absolutely bizarre and literally has nothing to do with Jordan Rossiter.

I’ll be sad to see Rossiter go but it’s make or break time really and I can’t see him getting a game ahead of any of our current first team options in midfield.

It’s a shame but it is what it is.

Not a chance.

We have to remember he was a Warburton / McParland signing, almost all of whom turned out to be ordinary at best.

We all bought into the ‘new Gerrard’ spiel - and some of us are still grimly holding onto it - but all the evidence suggests he’s nothing of the sort.

I wish the lad all the best, but I doubt he’ll ever play football above English Championship level.

No one said he was a £15m player! However with a few years of playing regularly behind him then I see no reason he couldn’t be! He was supposedly worth £5m when he came to us. What does £15m buy you in England nowadays? Not very much!

Good luck to the lad - hopefully he is over all his issues and he can have a long and successful career as he deserves it.

Sending him out on loan again was never really an option.

When was the last time he played regularly? Apart from 6 months this season sorry
