According to a report from the Daily Star, West Ham and Glasgow Rangers bosses David Moyes and Steven Gerrard are both keen to sign talented youngster Dion McGhee after his release from Manchester United.

The Hammers and the Gers both need to bolster their central midfield ranks this summer.
But bringing in McGhee would obviously be a signing made with one eye on the future rather than the here and now.
The midfielder, 19, was released by Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier this week. And his exit from Old Trafford seems to have piqued the interest of Moyes and Gerrard.
The Daily Star claims that the Scot could bring the teenager to the London Stadium, whilst the former Liverpool skipper is keen to ensure that Ibrox is the youngster’s next destination.
McGhee is an attacking midfielder by trade, but he surprisingly played at left-back during his last game for United’s under-23’s. So he is obviously a rather versatile performer.
The Daily Star suggest that Rangers could hold the advantage over West Ham in the race for the 19-year-old.
It is allegedly McGhee’s preference to play under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.
The teenager clearly has a lot of talent. He wouldn’t have spent 13 years at Old Trafford if he didn’t.
The young Englishman is now approaching an age where he needs to make the step up to regular first-team action.
And perhaps a move to either Rangers or the Hammers is what he needs to help spark his career into life.
