Having failed to secure head coach Darren Moore’s favoured picks for right-back spot across the permanent transfer window, it was being reported last night that West Bromwich Albion had equally failed with a follow-up offer for Rangers skipper James Tavernier.
We had been linked with the 26-year-old fullback quite heavily and at least two or three bids were reportedly lodged, one of which was on permanent deadline day itself earlier on in August, but all were to no avail as they were knocked back.
With the loan transfer window closing at 5pm on Friday evening, Sky Sports reported that despite signing Tyrone Mears as a free agent we went back for another try on a loan to buy basis.
Sky don’t report what the makeup of the offer actually was, and they do say it was our second attempt but we have reportedly had more than that as I reference, so maybe it was a second attempt of the day?
Ultimately it came to nothing though so we’ll have to see if we go back in January or revert to earlier targets like Jack Stacey et al.
