Hull City are considering a move for Ranger midfielder Josh Windass, according to HITC Sport.

The son of the former club legend Dean Windass is understood to not be in Pedro Caixinha plans for next season at Ibrox, and a move to his home city could be on the cards.

The 23-year old joined the Scottish giants last season after signing for Accrington Stanley and has gone on to make 27 appearances for the club.

Windass, who spent his youth career with Huddersfield Town, went on to make over 70 appearances for Stanley.

HITC understands that Windass has also been linked to several League One clubs for next season, but Windass is keen to play at as high a level as possible, with City keeping a close eye on the player.

Hull City’s rebuilding process folloiwng relegation to the Championship will begin in the next few days as Leonid Slutsky joins the club as their new head coach after Marco Silva’s departure last month.

Curtis Davies has already left the club with stars including Harry Maguire, Sam Clucas and Kamil Grosicki expected to follow. Andrew Robertson, Tom Huddlestone and Michael Dawson have also been linked with moves away in recent days.

The Tigers were linked with Windass back in 2015 after Hull met Accrington in the FA Cup, with former boss Steve Bruce said to be a keen admirer of the youngster.

Windass would be an addition to the squad that supporters would admire, given his fathers status in the city as the man who scored the goal to earn their first ever Premier League promotion in the 2008 play-off final.
