But despite talks taking place Edmundson’s career will now continue north of the border.

He has signed a four-year-deal with Rangers, who finished second in the Scottish Premiership last season and qualified for the Europa League.

He told Rangers TV: ‘To come to Rangers is a massive opportunity and I feel like I can live up to the expectation.

‘There were a few clubs interested but as soon as I heard about Rangers there was only one place I wanted to come.’

Edmundson had also attracted interest from Peterborough, who had reportedly also made a £600,000 bid for the defender.

The 6ft 2in man made 54 appearances in League Two last term, delivering a season of consistency which led to a number of clubs expressing an interest in his services.

Meanwhile, Pompey have signed striker Ellis Harrison from Ipswich.
