Scottish Premiership side Rangers are preparing a move for Norwich City captain Russell Martin, according to the Daily Record.
The centre-back has been told he can leave the club on loan in January. He has fallen down the pecking order at Carrow Road under their new boss Daniel Farke.
Martin has not played for Norwich since August. This has Rangers on red alert and a move would suit both parties at this moment in time.
Rangers recently appointed Graeme Murty as their manager until the end of the season. He will be looking for signings in January to put his own stamp on the team and the loan signing of Russell Martin would certainly make their defence stronger.
Martin, 31, is a popular man at Carrow Road and has played over 300 games for them. He joined them in 2010 when they were in League One and has helped them again promotion to the Premier League on two occasions. He has also scored 17 goals for the Canaries from centre-back.
Despite being born in Brighton, Martin is also an established Scotland international and he has played 29 games for his country. He started his career with Brighton before moving onto Lewes. He then joined Wycombe Wanderers in 2004 and spent 4 seasons there before being snapped up by Peterborough United.
Since signing for them in 2010, Martin has been a huge part of Norwich’s recent success. He is their club captain and some fans will be sad to see him leave. Nevertheless, he needs game time and a move to Rangers would be ideal for him.
