Edmundson Bid Accepted
Monday, 26th Jul 2021 15:12
TWTD understands Rangers have accepted Town’s offer for central defender George Edmundson.
Town made a bid understood to be approaching £1 million over the weekend which the Gers agreed to accept this morning.
Edmundson is at the club this afternoon with talks regarding personal terms ongoing with the Blues offering the former Oldham man a four-year deal. Confirmation of the move could come later today.
Championship clubs have also shown interest in Edmundson this summer with Rangers having previously turned down a number of offers, the highest £750,000.
If the Blues complete the move, the central defender will become the most expensive signing of the Gamechanger revolution so far.
Derby County, where Edmundson spent the second half of last season on loan, are keen on his return to Pride Park but are only able to offer another loan due to their transfer embargo, which is the case with a number of the other interested parties.
Championship new boys Peterborough were keen on Edmundson earlier in the summer but have dropped out of the running.
More recently, League One trio Charlton, Sunderland and Portsmouth were claimed to want him on loan, however, Rangers have been looking to do a permanent deal.
Edmundson joined the Glasgow giants from Oldham for £750,000 in the summer of 2019, signing a four-year deal which still has two seasons to run.
However, the Mancunian has never really established himself at Ibrox - he has made only 13 starts and four sub appearances, scoring twice - and has fallen down the pecking order following Nikola Katic’s return from a serious knee injury.
Edmundson, who is 6ft 3in tall, came through the ranks at Oldham and spent time on loan with Ramsbottom United, Alfreton and AFC Fylde while with the Latics.
In 2018/19 he was named in the League Two Team of the Year before making his move to Rangers that summer.

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
