That’s according to the Daily Record, who report the 21-year-old likes the prospect of a move to Ibrox.

That put them in the driving seat for the highly-rated centre-back, with Oldham rejecting two prior bids from Steven Gerrard’s side.

Rangers’ last offer was reported to have been £500,000 plus add-ons.

That’s some way short of the bid on the table from Fratton Park.

They report: ‘Sources close to the player are adamant that the player will only leave if the move is right – not just because Oldham have accepted an offer.’

It’s also believed Edmundson, who also interests Peterborough, will have talks with his family and agent over the weekend to discuss his next move, having only returned home from holiday.
