Rangers striker Cousin is 'ready for England move'
Thursday 29 May 2008
The Rangers striker Daniel Cousin is ready to move to England this summer, according to his agent Willie McKay.
The Gabon international was set to leave Ibrox during the January transfer window after Fulham had a bid accepted by the Glasgow side. However, Fifa blocked the move as their rules stipulate that players cannot appear for three different clubs in the same season and Cousin had made a brief appearance for French club Lens before signing for Rangers.
Cousin returned to Glasgow and helped the club reach the Uefa Cup final and take second spot in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
Fulham are believed to be ready to rekindle their interest in Cousin, who scored 10 league goals in 14 starts for Rangers.
McKay told Sky Sports: "I would expect Daniel to leave Rangers this summer and he is still very interested in a move to England.
"He was disappointed when the move to Fulham in January was blocked, but he showed what a real professional he was by returning to Rangers and scoring a few important goals for them. He would love the chance to play in the Premier League and there is interest from a number of clubs."
The party interested in buying troubled Gretna held talks with the Scottish Football League yesterday. Wilson Field, the administrators running the club, were scheduled to attend a meeting with league chiefs and took along representatives from the consortium, which is fronted by football agent Paul Davies.
The meeting was designed to provide information to the administrators and Davies and no major decisions were taken.
Wilson Field made all players and staff redundant last week and the club are not assured of joining the Irn-Bru First Division next season even if a takeover is completed.
