Rangers ‘reignite interest’ in Birmingham City ace as £4.2m swap deal touted

According to reports, Rangers have rekindled their interest in defender Dion Sanderson of Birmingham City.
Birmingham’s relegation from the Championship to League One has reignited discussion over the captain of the Blues.

Despite playing 37 games in the English second division last season, Sanderson was unable to keep his team from being relegated. The 24-year-old had a difficult season finale as well because he was momentarily relieved of his captaincy due to an accused drunk driving incident.

The discussion on Sanderson’s future has been reignited by Sunderland Echo, one of our sister publications. The center back, who was previously with Sunderland and spent the 2020–21 season on loan at Stadium of Light, is expected to join with Rangers and leave Birmingham for Glasgow.

The Scottish Premiership’s biggest teams have continuously been linked to Sanderson in recent windows, and in the upcoming weeks, there’s a chance that interest in him may resurface. If so, Birmingham would be interested in seeing Connor Goldson, who is reportedly a transfer target, go the opposite way in a trade.

With 309 games, 23 goals, and 15 assists in six years at Ibrox Stadium, the former Brighton & Hove Albion player has been an incredible servant. According to Transfermarkt, Goldson’s current transfer value is £5 million (£4.2 million).

Future Blues supporters shouldn’t worry too much about Dion Sanderson’s future in Birmingham, based at least on his recent Instagram activity. The defense wrote on June 14th, posting: “Hey Bluenoses, It’s been a while since I used social media. I thought it was necessary for me to stand back and consider the previous several months.

It’s been difficult to handle as a person, a player, and a captain. For my errors, both on and off the field, I want to sincerely apologize to each and every one of you.

“My residence is in Birmingham City. Being able to represent this football team and experience the love and support of the supporters from the moment I go into the stadium until I leave is an honor.

“Thank you and, above all, I hope to meet you all very soon. Your assistance has been amazing. KRO,” Sanderson said in closing.
