In the hullabaloo of the past few months, Rangers fans could be forgiven for completely forgetting about the club’s first signing for next season.
Nnamdi Ofoborh was confirmed in January on a pre-contract, a deal which seemed to be going through as an immediate like Jack Simpson ended up being, but which remained one for the future as the Nigeria U21 international remained with the Cherries and returned to Wycombe on loan till he hooks up at Ibrox.
Ofoborh is pretty unknown up north, the strong central midfielder has 11 Championship outings and 23 League One credits to his name, but the 21-year old has been out injured for the past couple of months and hasn’t been at manager Gareth Ainsworth’s disposal as a result.
But what is the vision for the lad once he comes north (and commentators get used to his name…).
He’s not the tallest, but he is quick – think Kante, and you’re getting there. He’s forward thinking, but he’s also defensive minded and there’s no one at Ibrox like him right now. If there’s one thing Rangers lack in midfield, it’s pace. Ofoborh has it in abundance.
And that’s a quality Rangers will benefit from.
As we say, he’s been a little bit forgotten, but we look forward to him coming north this summer.
