Steven Gerrard confirms Rangers have rejected Leeds United bid for Ryan Kent

The player has been tracked by Victor Orta for a long time but it sounds like Leeds were a long way from getting him.

Leeds United have had a bid rejected for Rangers’ Ryan Kent, there were rumours earlier this week that the bid was around £10m.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard described the rejected bid as “nowhere near his valuation” and said Leeds will “need to think really hard if they want to come in again”.

Kent often plays out wide but his skill set could see him playing infield for Marcelo Bielsa, it could prove difficult to get this deal done given Gerrard’s effusive praise for the player and that he does not want to lose him. However, the pull of a move from the SPL to the Premier League could be hard to resist for Kent.

Whether Leeds go further with this pursuit is yet to be seen but I wouldn’t expect Leeds to be upping their bid massively for a player who isn’t in one of Leeds “problem positions”.
