Birmingham City prepares to make a move for a Rangers star”

The most recent news on transfers in the EFL Championship, as Birmingham City prepares to make a move for a new Rangers signing.

Jack Butland, a former youth player for Birmingham City, is reportedly Wayne Rooney’s top target to sign as one of his first players at St Andrew’s Stadium. The 2010 breakthrough came at Blues, where the former England international goalie made his Stoke City debut. He is now expected to make a significant comeback.

Butland, who only joined Scottish Premiership powerhouse Rangers in the summer, is reportedly Rooney’s top target as the new Birmingham manager searches for a new custodian. The team presently only has two alternatives, both of whose contracts finish at the conclusion of the current campaign.

The top pick, John Ruddy, remained steadfast throughout the summer despite Luton Town’s interest, but he may go when his contract expires. In the meantime, Neil Etheridge is scheduled to go at the same time and is paid a considerable salary. This gives Butland a natural opening between the sticks.

The Sun claims that Butland’s decision to relocate to Scotland was influenced by former Rangers manager Michael Beale. Now that Beale has left the Ibrox early, Butland is reportedly “pondering his future” and may be persuaded to return to Birmingham. The custodian has reportedly started well beyond the border, but it is said that a “proper fee” will be required to sign him.

Butland has impressed thus far for Rangers, giving up only five goals in his first eight league games while also keeping an amazing five clean sheets. Although there is little doubt that the goals in European competitions have been leaked, Rangers’ performance in the Scottish Premiership has propelled them to second place.

Despite being only thirty years old, Butland has already earned nine senior England caps, one of which was earned with Rooney. In November 2015, the Three Lions defeated France by a score of two goals to zero under the leadership of Birmingham’s new manager. Butland entered the game at halftime and shut out the opposition in the second frame.
