Leeds keeping tabs on Ryan Kent

Ryan Kent was heavily linked with a move to Leeds United before he opted to sign for Rangers and it seems that the Premier League side still retain an interest in him.

According to Daily Mirror, Victor Orta is working on signing a winger before the transfer window closes and the Elland Road outfit are keeping tabs on Kent.

The likes of Daniel James and Noa Lang are on their shortlist as well.

Kent has been outstanding since his move to Scotland and he has helped Rangers win the league title last season.

The 24-year-old scored 13 goals and picked up 15 assists across all competitions for the Scottish giants this past season.

The report from Mirror adds that Marcelo Bielsa has liked the player for a long time.

Kent has a contract with Rangers until the summer of 2023 and the Ibrox giants are under no pressure to cash in on him this summer.

Leeds will probably have to pay way over the odds to tempt the Scottish outfit into selling him.

Furthermore, the 24-year-old is unlikely to move to Leeds unless he is guaranteed regular first-team football.

The left-sided winger will be expecting to start in Jack Harrison’s place if he moves to the Premier League side and he will not be keen on a backup role.

Leeds signed Harrison on a permanent deal at the start of this month and the former Manchester City winger will be hoping to play regular first-team football next season as well.
