Norwich City have edged ahead of Rangers in the race to sign Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones, according to the Eastern Daily Press.

The 23 year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Scottish Premier League club and he only has 18 months left on his contract.

It did appear that Scottish giants Rangers were leading the race to sign the £1 million rated winger but it now looks like Championship side Norwich City will the most likely destination for Jordan Jones. He has also been linked with Burnley and Hull City, though neither of them clubs have seemed to pursue any deal for him as of yet.

Jones gained his first cap for Northern Ireland in October against Switzerland. Michael O’Neill was said to have been impressed by Jones’ form for Kilmarnock in the league. Even though Northern Ireland in their crucial World Cup qualifying game against Switzerland, Jones still impressed in the minutes that he played which has caught the attention of many clubs.

He started his career with Middlesbrough but could never break into their first-team. He made one appearance for Boro in 2012 but gained first-team experience during loan spells in League Two with Cambridge United and Hartlepool United.

He was released by Boro after the 2015/16 season and found himself looking for a new club. Kilmarnock snapped him up in the summer of 2016 and that move has paid off for Jones with his career back on track and a move back to England seeming very likely this January.
