Clubs agree £30m international forward deal amid interest in Rangers star

Leeds United have agreed a fee of £30m for Valencia and Spain forward Rodrigo amid links to Rangers winger Ryan Kent.

The move for the Valencia talisman comes with the La Liga side being forced to sell their assets amid financial difficulties.

Rodrigo will join Ferran Torres (Man City), Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin (Villarreal) in leaving the Mestalla.

“Valencia CF have reached a preliminary agreement with Leeds United FC this Tuesday for the transfer of footballer Rodrigo Moreno to the English club, pending the completion of documentation and other formalities and the passing of a mandatory medical examination,” reads a Valencia statement.

“Valencia CF wish to thank Rodrigo for his commitment and efforts over the last six seasons – in which he has played a total of 220 games, scored 59 goals, and helped the club to win the Copa del Rey. Valencia CF wish him all the best in this new stage in his professional career.”

Reports are suggesting Leeds could be set to test Rangers’ resolve with a further £14m bid for Ryan Kent in the coming weeks as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of their first Premier League season in 16 years.
