It will apparently take a lot more than what FC Sochaux was offering to pry Maurice Edu away from Rangers.

The Scottish club emphatically turned down Sochaux's bid for the U.S. national team midfielder a day after a reported offer of £500,000 was put on the table.

"What I would say is the bid that they put in was so far away that I would be very surprised if they came back in," Rangers manager Ally McCoist told the BBC.

Since joining Rangers from Toronto FC in 2008, Edu has won a Scottish Premier League title in each of his three seasons with the club and has competed in both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, scoring goals in both competitions. Edu's current deal with Rangers runs through the summer of 2013, meaning he should continue to be the subject of transfer talk.

"I can tell you that I want Maurice Edu to sign a new contract rather than go anywhere," McCoist said.

Happy that Edu doesn't appear headed for Sochaux? Would you prefer to see him remain at Rangers for the long haul or try his hand in another league?
