Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell reportedly decides to join Rangers ahead of Leeds United and Newcastle United, when his contract expires next summer.

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell has reportedly chosen to join Rangers ahead of six Premier League clubs including Leeds United and Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old has less than nine months remaining on his contract at Ewood Park and is set to leave the club for free next summer.

According to TEAMtalk, Rangers are confident that they can fend off competition from elsewhere to land Rothwell on a free transfer in July 2022.

Leeds and Newcastle are believed to have shown a strong interest in Rothwell, as have Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

However, the midfielder seemingly has his heart set on a move to Ibrox to work under Liverpool and England legend Steven Gerrard.

One previous report has suggested that the Gers may consider recruiting Rothwell in January, with Blackburn looking to cash in on the Englishman if he fails to sign a contract extension.

Rothwell has made 132 appearances across all competitions for Blackburn, scoring nine goals and providing 12 assists.
