Leeds United have asserted their spell back in the Premiership splendidly, and with a stay in the top tier secured they are already busy working on their summer plans as the Whites look to step forward to the European goals following an excellent time back.
Marcelo Bielsa has laid the groundwork already as his Leeds continue to be proficient over the course of the season, and new transfers will be fundamental to that with a familiar name linked with a move to Elland Road in Rangers winger Ryan Kent.
The Scottish winger has been linked with a move to West Yorkshire over the recent years and those links have emerged again.
GLAD OVER LEEDS INTEREST; RANGERS STILL FULL FOCUS
Ryan Kent expressed his flattery over interests from Bielsa’s side though informed his sole focus is on Rangers as of now. Kent was subject to links since his impressive performances at Ibrox on-loan from Liverpool before turning his move permanent.
The 24-year-old has helped Rangers to the league title this campaign and expressed his excitement to play in the Champions League with the club next year – meaning that he still has his heart set on remaining with Steven Gerrard’s side.
Ryan speaking to Sky Sports: “It’s nice to be linked with other football clubs, the big clubs, but you’ve got to understand the duty of where you’re at and as long as I’m at Rangers I’ll always give 100 per cent to the club.”
He definitely has excelled during his time in Scotland, having arrived in 2018 – Kent has gone on to make 126 appearances for the club with 26 goals & 27 assists to show for.
SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR!
Back last summer, Leeds prepared a £15million bid for Ryan Kent, having a £11million bid rejected though Gerrard influenced Kent to Scotland. Now with his excellence with Rangers this year – the price is already rising up and above.
