Leeds United’s interest in Rangers winger Ryan Kent is expected to come to an end, with the Scottish Premiership side set to offer fresh contract terms.
The Argentine tactician guided the Whites to automatic promotion and a Championship title win last term, and he will be expectant of his new signings to help them to a positive campaign back in the Premier League.
One player who Bielsa seemingly missed out on is Kent, having been linked with a move for the Rangers winger for sometime.
Remaining in Scotland after the transfer window closed at the weekend, Kent has been performing to a high standard for Steven Gerrard’s side, contributing with four goals and three assists in his nine Premiership appearances.
New deal on the cards for Ryan Kent at Rangers
With such impressive figures, it now seems that Gerrard and Ibrox officials want to ensure the winger remains at the club for the foreseeable future.
Football Insider have reported that Rangers ready to offer fresh terms, also revealing that Leeds had a £10m bid rejected by the Glasgow giants.
Currently on a contract worth £20,000-a-week which runs until 2023, the former Liverpool attacker is now expected to receive improved terms at Ibrox.
Plenty of options in attack for Bielsa despite Kent blow
Whilst Kent would seemingly have been a good signing for Leeds, Bielsa has done well to improve his attacking options, bringing in the likes of Raphinha from Rennes.
Aside from the Brazilian’s arrival, youngster Ian Poveda has been impressing and is capable of playing on either flank, coming off the bench against Manchester City to help secure a 1-1 draw last weekend.
At the moment, Leeds are looking impressive throughout the pitch, making the news of a stay for Kent at Rangers an easily digestible blow.
