Talksport have tonight confirmed Joe Aribo will not be signing a new deal and will make a move to England when a suitable offer appears.

Southampton are the latest front runners but Crystal Palace, Fulham, Villa, Brentford and Forest have all been credited with interest in the playmaker, but as we reported earlier, his Rangers race is 99% done.

It is now beginning to look unlikely (don’t quote us on this one) that he will attend Rangers’ Portuguese training camp in pursuit instead of finding a new club, with Southampton’s apparent interest being useful to him due to its reasonable distance from London.

Aribo’s quote of the last international break in which he claimed he was happy and wasn’t thinking of leaving appears to have been a momentary faux pas, for follow up press interviews backtracked a lot on that and bigged up Steven Gerrard.

Due to his being in the last year of his deal, Rangers will not get his full market value, which for a player of his stock, quality and international caps not to mention experience would typically be considerably above £20M, instead the Ibrox club accepting around £10M.

Aribo misses England, but has carried himself extremely well at Ibrox, and while it would have been nice for him to sign a new deal and get the club his full market value, it wasn’t to be, and it will still represent a colossal profit for the club.

We expect this transfer to take place within a week or two at the most, but as with the window, to paraphrase the late great Murray Walker, anything can happen in transfer summer, and usually does.

  1. Thats a big loss to see Joe go,hes been great for us,a bit dodgy in front of goal,missed some sitters but a great attacker,i wish him all the best BUT remember what happened with Goldson,so i believe it when i see it

  2. OK we get it , with him Kent and Morelos we have had good service from all 3 and business is business, no loyalty from these wretches. Now we need to get the money we are entitled to ASAP and get some new faces in the door . Let’s get it done . When are our board going to get this right ffs.

  3. Wherever theses wretches go they will not play at a higher level again . Our league is total shit but it’s our only vehicle to get CL football . Onwards 56 . Anything less is mot at all acceptable

  4. Agree , all we ever get from these guys is non commital ,always feel they are here against there will ,will say again alfie has never came out and said its an honour to pull on blue jersey ,we rescued kent from liverpool reserves gave him tremendous platform ,alfie from finnsh league ,aribo from charlton .They are very lucky to be paid great sums to play for such a massive institution ,IMO they will move on to obscuruity and regret the day they hankered for a move .As loads have said the grass is not always greener,they are also never 15,20,25 million players ,you dont prove that by playing up here and raising your game for 6-8 games in europe managers know the score .You need to do it EVERY week to a very high level in england etc .
