Scottish Champions Rangers have expressed an interest in Northampton prospect Caleb Chukwuemeka.

Chukwuemeka has yet to sign a professional contract, leaving League Two Northampton in a vulnerable position if his future is not resolved before his current youth contract expires at the end of next January.

Were he to make a cross-border switch at the end of his deal Northampton would be entitled to around just £60,000 in compensation, a situation that has alerted Rangers.

The 19-year-old has attracted interest from the likes of Aston Villa, Norwich and Club Brugges in the past.

Chukwuemeka is the brother of Villa’ England under-18 starlet Carney, who made his first team debut in May, and the Midlands club have considered reuniting the siblings at Villa Park.
