The transfer update that will delight Liverpool fans but Aston Villa, Rangers and Leeds United fans will hate
Steve Gerrard used his Liverpool contacts to perfection last season with the loan signing of Ryan Kent – the youngster was named young player of the year at Rangers.
After a sensational season at Ibrox, fans were hoping that they may see a second-term in Scotland for the youngster, that now looks unlikely.
A host of teams have shown an interest in a loan or permanent deal for the player who was named as PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year.
His form has been so impressive that the one man he probably wants to impress more than any, is indeed impressed.
Gerrard, the Rangers fans, and his many other suitors are having to play the long game with Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp understood to want a close look at Kent during the Euro champions’ own pre-season before deciding where the 22-year-old should play next season.
Leeds United have seemingly dropped their interest.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship side, according to the Star , had an offer knocked back by the Reds and have decided not to make a second offer.
Kent has dropped a hint that he could be heading back to Rangers after an encounter with a fan.
The photo opportunity for the Rangers fan and his son, turned in a transfer Q&A.
The Rangers fans @liamemm tweeting: “Just asked if he would be returning next season and he said possibly yeah.”
He played 43 times in all competitions for Rangers last season scoring six goals and his exciting style of play earned him widespread plaudits.
The 22-year-old star has been tracked by Villa before.
A The Sun report a few weeks ago claimed that he was nailed on for a move to B6 if Liverpool decide to sell for around £10m.
Kent, rated at around £10m could be available to move on a permanent deal from Anfield having already had a number of loan moves.
