Sam Lammers reveals Rangers talks planned but makes admission over contact during loan

Sam Lammers plans to hold talks with Rangers management this summer after admitting there has been no contact while out on loan.

The attacker has been a revelation for Utrecht since joining them on loan in January, scoring nine goals in his last 10 games and 10 strikers altogether. Given that impact, the Dutch side are keen to keep him in his homeland beyond this campaign and have vowed to do all they can.

But the 27-year-old plans to speak to Phillipe Clement and others at the club before he decides what the future holds for him. However, he did explain that the Ibrox club haven't really been checking in on him while he has been back in the Netherlands.

Lammers told Dutch outlet De Telegraaf:That is where I am under contract and who I will be the first to talk to. I haven’t really been in touch with Rangers for the past six months.

“After this season, we will have conversations.”

This week, former Gers defender Craig Moore suggested the club should bring the player back in over the summer so they can have a look at him during pre-season and then make a decision on what they do.

Utrecht sports director Jordy Zuidam said: "It's clear Sam is above our salary cap. But we reached an agreement with Rangers that was acceptable to us.

"Now we have to find a way with Sam and his club to keep him. We are fully committed to signing Sam permanently.

"He is a very important member of our team. We did everything we could to bring him here on loan and we will do everything possible to bring him here on a permanent deal.

"We have spoken to him several times and he is really a boy who is obsessed with football. He has said that he wants to finish the season, but is definitely considering it. We will look for all possibilities to keep him. I hope that is enough."
