Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Leeds United midfielder Carlton Palmer does not believe his old side will give up in their pursuit of Rangers’ Ryan Kent.
Kent has been of interest to Leeds since last summer, with Rangers boss Steven Gerrard confirming back then that the Glasgow club had turned down a bid for the player.
According to The Athletic, though, the Whites remain keen on Kent, meaning a new bid for the 24-year-old winger could be launched in this transfer window.
Will Leeds finally land Kent this summer?
Ultimately, for Palmer, this one is certainly not over as Marcelo Bielsa looks to bolster his squad ahead of the 2021/22 season.
“They’ve been linked with him and he’s a talented player,” the ex-Leeds star told TT. “All you can do is keep tracking the player.
“Howard Wilkinson said when I went to Leeds United he was tracking me for two years. I don’t think you ever give up. If you identify a player that you want, you just keep going.
“You never give up on a target that you really want, you just wait for the opportunity where you may be able to get him out.”
Rangers put up a fight last summer, a successful one, to keep hold of Kent. And this summer, you would expect a similar theme.
He was a very important figure for the Gers in that recent Scottish Premiership title triumph, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists, so the Englishman is not a player Gerrard will want to lose.
