Rangers midfielder Harry Forrester has rejected a move to Southend United, it has been revealed today.
The creative playmaker and goalscorer has been made surplus by manager Pedro Caixinha and is now training with the U23s, and is said to seek a move to an English Championship side.
Ex-team mate Rob Kiernan recently joined Phil Brown and his gang down south, but Forrester has dismissed the chance to join him at the Boots and Laces Training Ground, preferring a move to a better league/team instead.
Reports had initially claimed that Forrester had in fact been told to stay away from Auchenhowie entirely and find a new club, but Sky Sources have confirmed the truth is slightly less extreme and the 26-year old is with the highest branch of the Academy until he finds a new club.
Burton Albion are reportedly monitoring the situation and that would probably suit the ex-Doncaster man more, but as with it all, we will see what materialises.
