You could very easily argue that Leeds really want to sign Rangers winger Ryan Kent.

Kent was heavily linked with a move from Ibrox to Leeds last summer but, after two failed bids, they couldn’t tempt Rangers into selling.

The Scottish Sun reported in April that the Elland Road club were weighing up a £15 million third offer for the former Liverpool winger this summer.

And considering how hard Marcelo Bielsa and Victor Orta are trying to bring him to West Yorkshire, they clearly believe that he’s a fine player.

And so too does BT Sport pundit Stephen Craigan.

The 24-year-old has been instrumental in helping Rangers to a first Premiership title in a decade this season, scoring 12 goals and setting up 14 in all competitions.

But Craigan has advised the Ibrox club to keep hold of the Englishman for another while longer, arguing that he’s only going to get much better, evident by his value ‘going north’.

He said to Go Radio’s Football show: “There is more to come from him and if Rangers could keep him for another year to 18 months, I think they will see the best of him and the price tag could keep going north. Yes, he is a top-class player but there is so much potential to come.”

At 24, Kent might feel that he’s at the right age to return to English football – particularly if it’s a Premier League club like Leeds that come knocking.

Is another 18 months in Glasgow going to do wonders for his development? Probably not, but a season under Bielsa would and could take him to the next level.
