The Lowdown: New deal rejected
The winger, who ‘destroyed Dortmund’ in the Europa League last season according to journalist Josh Bunting, has been on the radar at Elland Road for a number of years.
The Latest: Leeds still keen on Kent
According to the print edition of The Sunday Mirror (2 October, page 71), as relayed by MOT Leeds News, the Whites remain in the hunt for Kent and will watch over the Englishman on Tuesday in the Champions League when he lines up against his former club Liverpool.
The report also states that Kent has snubbed a new contract at Ibrox and ‘will be a free agent next summer’. Aston Villa – who coincidentally take on Leeds at Elland Road today – are also credited with interest in the 25-year-old in the report.
The Verdict: Is he needed?
Kent is primarily a left winger who can also play as a second striker or on the right.
Jesse Marsch appears to be well stocked out wide, though, and he recently brought in Wilfried Gnonto, who can also feature from the wing.
However, it looks as if Victor Orta is still keen on finally bringing Kent to Yorkshire, so this could be one to keep an eye on heading into the New Year.
