Premier League Leeds United have submitted a bid for Rangers winger Ryan Kent, according to a Scottish football journalist.

Alan Nixon first made the claim that Leeds United are interested in the player on his Twitter account believing that Marcelo Bielsa is a big admirer of the player.

Nixon would then go on to write an exclusive for the Scottish Sun where he claimed that Leeds United were going to launch a £10m move for the player.

The bid comes after Nixon claims Bielsa twice tried to sign Kent from Liverpool before the winger moved to Ibrox last summer.

Rangers reportedly splashed out on a deal which could reportedly reach £7.5m for Kent last season after the winger impressed during an initial loan spell.

Kent picked up the Scottish Players’ Player of the Year Award in 18/19 and the report acknowledges that the winger is “settled” in Glasgow.

After this report, Nixon then claimed on his official Twitter account that a bid had been officially lodged by Leeds United as Bielsa steps up his recruitment drive.

The Elland Road club is preparing for a first Premier League campaign for 16 years after the Argentine guided them to promotion from the Championship.

Ryan Kent, 23, has started the season brightly at Rangers and is seen as a vital part of how the side plays.

If Rangers are to sell the tricky winger Leeds United will almost certainly have to up their offer but there’s no suggestion from the club that they are entertaining offers.
