Josh Windass set to leave Rangers for Wigan in deal worth £2M

Show caption

Glasgow Rangers midfielder Josh Windass is set to depart the club for a move to Wigan Athletic, according to a report in The Daily Mail.

Wigan Athletic have announced the capture of striker Josh Windass from Rangers on a three-year deal.

The Sun (9 August, page 55) had claimed that the Tractor Boys wanted to sign the goal-scoring midfielder in a £2 million move before Thursday's 5:00pm transfer deadline.

During the 2017/18 season, he finished the season with 18 goals in all competitions, tied with Alfredo Morelos as the club's top scorer for the season, with 13 of Windass' strikes in the league, the third-highest total behind Kris Boyd of Kilmarnock and Morelos. Selling the former Preston frontman is proving problematic, however, with Bolton Wanderers moving onto other targets.

The 24-year-old is Wigan's second addition on deadline-day, with Callum Connolly joining on a season-long loan from Everton earlier this afternoon.

He enjoyed a three-year spell at Stanley between 2013 and 2016, scoring 22 times in 77 appearances and was offered extended terms at the club in November 2015. It remains to be seen, however, whether Rangers would be happy to let Windass leave temporarily for nothing.

"It's been a odd day", Windass told the official Wigan website. "I woke up this morning to get to Ibrox to get on the coach to play in the game tonight and then next minute I get a phone call and I'm here to do a medical".
