Former Portsmouth target George Edmundson signs for Rangers from Oldham Athletic
Pompey target George Edmundson has signed for Rangers for an undisclosed fee from Oldham Athletic.
The Blues were keen on bringing the 22-year-old to Fratton Park, with a fee in excess of £600,000 being agreed for the centre-half.
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.
