Birmingham City youngster Tom Lang is in Scotland with Rangers currently trying to earn a place at one of the top youth academies that side of the boarder; Rangers FC.

Lang is 17 and has been with Blues since he was in the U12s team but it would seem would rather return to his native Scotland should he get the choice. The Trial started last month and is still ongoing.

The defender is a Scotland youth international and it is no surprise that he may see his future elsewhere and closer to home.

Rangers are understood to be short at the back in recent times and would be open to bringing through more youth into their squad as their financial troubles continue to rule over the club.

Under the youth compensation rules Blues will be able to claim a fee for a young player they have trained that goes on to play for a club within the EU. So should Lang leave there will no doubt then be a negotiation process between the two sides to agree a fee for him. So he won’t be free for the Scottish team.

As we’re coming to the end of the season there is no rush to push this deal through and it wouldn’t be surprising to not see Lang back and the club again.

Blues are well known for spotting and producing talent, and even nurturing other teams talent. So it is a great shame to see one of the youth teams leave, however there is more to life than football and if the player isn’t the right fit for the club then it is best he moves on to somewhere else, good luck to him.

Should Lang leave? Where would you rather play – Scotland or England?
