Brighton want Tavernier

Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in the services of Glasgow Rangers’ James Tavernier, according to Sky Sports.

The right back’s career started at Newcastle in 2009, and during his four-year stint at St. James’ Park he was sent on loan to a number of lower-division clubs, making only 11 appearances in the Magpies’ shirt. In 2014 he made a permanent move to Wigan Athletic, but ended up moving on another loan to Bristol City halfway through the season.

In 2015, he joined Rangers and so far he has made a total of 158 appearances in all competitions for the team now led by Steven Gerrard, finding the net 32 times. This summer, a number of offers from West Bromwich Albion were turned down by the club.

The Seagulls are preparing for life without Bruno, a 37-year-old defender whose contract expires next month. Gerrard sent a message to Brighton CEO Paul Barber, inviting him to call if he wanted to talk about Tavernier and warning at the same time that it would take a lot of money to take him away from Ibrox.
