Reports from Turkey claim two Super Lig sides have not only made contact with Scott Arfield but in fact have started negotiations with the midfielder with a view to a Bosman move this summer.
Hatayspor and Alanyaspor are said to seek the lucrative free agent given there is absolutely no sign whatsoever of Rangers offering him a new deal, and the money of course available in Turkey is strong, it being a wealthy league for sure.
Arfield is on record as saying he wants to stay, but if Rangers’ board have decided against offering him a new deal, he will have to find employment elsewhere, and the 33-year old can’t hang around forever waiting for Rangers to make contact over a contract extension.
He’s put his cards on the table already, and now European sides are courting what is a very fine free agent, who has at least two or three years left in the game and will be an asset to many teams.
But we want him to be an asset to Rangers, and at the end of the day he has only 4 or 5 months left on his current term, so the Turkish outfits are working on pre-contract deals to see if they can lure him into the humidity of the Mediterranean.
If he does leave, it’s not for the want of him trying, and the fans love him.
GVB has also been selecting him most matches so we imagine the manager wants him too.
Just see how this one unfolds.
