Coventry City have joined the race to sign Rangers winger Glenn Middleton.

The Sky Blues are wanting to bring the 19-year-old in on a season-long loan, according to a report by The Scottish Sun.

Middleton, who is a Scotland Under-21 international, made 28 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s side last season and chipped in with five goals.

He was heavily linked with a move to League One side Doncaster Rovers but a move to the Yorkshire side has stalled since their manager Grant McCann departed for Hull City.

The Glasgow-born winger started his career in England with Northampton Town before he was snapped up by Norwich City in 2012. He never made a senior appearance for the Canaries despite being on their bench a couple of times.

Rangers swooped to sign him in January 2018 and he waited until last July to make his first team debut under Gerrard in a Europa League fixture against FC Shkupi.

Middleton is now set to go out on loan to the Football League and will be looking to impress. His contract at Ibrox expires in the summer of 2023 meaning he still has a lot of years ahead of him with the Glasgow side.

Coventry finished 8th last season in the third tier and will be hoping to get into the Play-Offs next term. Bringing in Middleton on loan would give them more options out wide.
