Look, even a blind man could see that Leeds United’s squad, as good as it has been moulded under Marcelo Bielsa, is not where it needs to be to sustain a successful season in the Premier League. Additions are needed and that is clear. What is also clear is that Premier League muscle is set to lose out to stoic sang froid from Rangers over Ryan Kent.

Steven Gerrard, one of Liverpool’s modern greats has ZERO intention of letting former Reds winger Kent leave Ibrox. That ‘nowhere near his value’ bid was said to be a flat £10m opening gambit. Rangers have batted that away with the same nonchalance that Celtic seem to win the SPL title.

Kent actually joined Rangers initially on loan from Liverpool, the now 23-year-old spending the 2018/19 SPL season at the Glasgow giants. That campaign saw him score 6 goals and provide 6 assists in 23 appearances. Last season saw the former Liverpool flier make 21 appearances, scoring 7 goals. So far this season Kent has 4 SPL games under his belt and 2 goals. In total, he has played 80 games for the Scottish giants, scoring 16 goals and providing 13 assists.

Still, forget the numbers and all of that. Stevie G says that Ryan Kent is not for sale so that’s £10m not out of the transfer kitty. There are around three weeks until that first game of Leeds United’s first Premier League season in 16 years, coincidentally against Liverpool. Ryan Kent is playing tomorrow and no doubt Leeds will be keeping tabs on him.

Yet, three weeks is a short time and the Whites cannot afford to be faffing around trying to get Rangers to agree to sell them Kent. I mean, he’s Ryan Kent NOT Clarke Kent; he’s a winger not Superman.

We go again!
