Glasgow Rangers are preparing to offer Ryan Kent a new contract after fending off interest from Leeds United, according to Football Insider.
Kent was a target for Leeds throughout the transfer window – they even had a £10m bid rejected.
However, the Gers were able to hold on to their star winger and as a result, they are set to offer the 23-year-old improved terms. He is currently on £20,000 a week at Ibrox.
Keeping hold of Kent was arguably Steven Gerrard’s best bit of business this summer. The former Liverpool youngster has started the season in terrific form, scoring five and providing five assists in 11 matches, and has featured in every single Premiership gmae so far.
There is no better way to reward him and reflect his importance than by offering him a new contract. It would also be handy for Rangers if they could take out the £20m release clause that currently exists in his contract, as that will only leave them open to more offers if he continues his fine form. Kent made it clear that he wanted to stay north of the border – it is now time for Ross Wilson and co. to reward him, and it will no doubt keep him happy. That, perhaps, is the most important thing as the 54-time Scottish champions go in search of title number 55.
