JOSH WINDASS and Declan John are set to leave Rangers as the English transfer window enters its final hours.

Wigan are understood to be in pole position to sign Windass for a fee of around £2.5m plus add-ons.

According to STV, the player is heading to the Championship side for talks, with Ipswich having also been interested.

Windass, who was signed by Mark Warburton from Accrington Stanley in 2016, has divided fan opinion at Ibrox despite posting impressive stats last season.

He was the club’s joint top goalscorer with Alfredo Morelos, netting 18 goals in all competitions.

Rangers paid a compensation fee of around £60,000 for his services when he moved north of the border.

Full-back John, meanwhile, looks set to seal a move to Swansea City.

The 23-year-old, who signed for Rangers from the Swans’ rivals Cardiff, has seen Jon Flanagan and Borna Barišić arrive at the club in his position.

Yesterday Rangers knocked back a bid from West Bromwich Albion for captain James Tavernier and are thought to be firmly against selling him before tonight’s deadline.

The Ibrox club are also waiting to receive offers for goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, who has been interesting Blackburn.
