Kris Boyd has suggested to Sky Sports that he finds reported Leeds United target Ryan Kent a ‘phenomenal’ player.
Kent has enjoyed a wonderful season with Rangers, which has put him back on Leeds’ radar again.
The Scottish Sun say that Marcelo Bielsa’s men want to land the 24-year-old in the summer, with a bid of £15 million the minimum amount required to acquire his services.
It is no surprise to see Kent linked with the Premier League, as he has been consistently excellent for Rangers all year.
And Boyd has named him in his Scottish Premiership team of the season.
“Then there’s Ryan Kent who is phenomenal – he gets you off your seat,” the Sky pundit said.
“His numbers have increased season after season. Even if the team are not at the level we saw at the start of the campaign, he is still a threat. He is so comfortable with the ball – it is like has superglue in his boots!”
The comments are only likely to add to potential excitement about a potential move to Leeds.
The Whites would surely find it difficult to purchase Kent for Rangers, tough.
Steven Gerrard’s side have secured their first title for almost a decade and seem to be building for the future, with Kent a key part of their plans.
But the former Liverpool man certainly would add to Leeds’ attack if he was to join.
And if the Reds could land him he would be a seriously eye catching addition to their team.
