Leeds: Kevin Campbell reacts to Ryan Kent update

Leeds: Kevin Campbell reacts to Ryan Kent update -Leeds United News

Rangers forward Ryan Kent could be a ‘perfect’ signing for Leeds United on a pre-contract agreement, according to pundit Kevin Campbell.

The Lowdown: Kent update

The Whites were first linked with a move for Kent back in 2020 and speculation has continued over the past two years.

The 25-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has reportedly rejected a new ‘big-money’ deal at Ibrox and has set his sights on a move to the Premier League.

Reports this week have revealed that Leeds are still interested and will watch the winger in action at Anfield this evening in the Champions League.

The Latest: Campbell’s comments

Campbell, who contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to Football Insider regarding the update on Kent.

The pundit believes the Gers star could be a ‘perfect’ signing and an ‘ideal replacement for Jack Harrison should he leave’, but said that a move could still be a wise one even if Harrison signs new terms at Elland Road.

“Kent would be perfect.

“He would be the ideal replacement for Jack Harrison should he leave. “Kent’s contract is running down so there is a bargain to be had there. You do that deal if you’re Leeds.

“They could sign him even if Jack Harrison stays and signs a new deal. Kent is a good player and you would be getting him cheap. He is affordable.

“I think that would be a good move for all parties. Leeds could sign a pre-contract agreement with him in January.”

The Verdict: Strength in depth?

Kent is primarily a left winger who can also play as a second striker or on the right, with Jesse Marsch currently having Harrison and Luis Sinisterra as options from the left.

However, on a free, Kent could prove to be a shrewd addition to add strength in depth in the final third. He can play in a variety of attacking roles and registered 11 league assists in each of the past two seasons.

He’s clearly been a player on Victor Orta’s radar for some time now, so it’ll be interesting to see if Leeds look at a potential pre-contract agreement in the New Year.
