Ranger to be loaned out?
Ranger to be loaned out?
Fellow Premier League new boys look to be targetting one of our own young guns, Nile Ranger, as they look to beef up their attack in an attempt to survive in the Premier League.

Talks have apparently taken place between Ian Holloway and Chris Hughton over the possibility of Ranger making the switch to Bloomfield Road, according to The Express.

Apparently it stems from a contract wrangle at Goodison Park where Gosling was verbally offered a new deal, only for the final written offer to not be sent to him by the due date, meaning that he could be available for nothing, depending on the outcome of a Premier League ruling due to be held soon.
