A proposed Leeds United move for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Nadiem Amiri has collapsed as Rangers wait on progress in the club’s Glen Kamara interest.

According to the likes of the Athletic, a proposed £5m move for the Germany international, 26, has fallen apart after the Championship club flew the player over to England.

Things appear to have turned a little sour too with the report suggesting the Elland Road side have not paid for a return flight for the player back to mainland Europe.

This comes amid claims that Leeds United have been left frustrated over “additional demands” placed on the transfer from Nadiem Amiri’s camp.

According to Phil Hay, Nadiem Amiri placed further financial demands on the deal which eventually lead to it collapsing despite initially positive discussions with manager Daniel Farke.

The attacking midfielder was then pictured in Leeds city centre trying to arrange transport back to Germany as things turned sour at the 11th hour.

Nadiem Amiri bid collapses as Leeds United target Glen Kamara

Rangers fans will have one eye on the deal amid reports of intensified Leeds United interest in Finnish international midfielder Glen Kamara.

The Elland Road club have apparently stepped up their interest in the ex-Dundee star with the move for Glen Kamara and for Nadiem Amiri part of a proposed £20m end of window transfer splurge.

There is nothing to suggest that Leeds United are not still interested in concluding a deal for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara and perhaps the Nadiem Amiri situation can speed things up.

Rangers boss Michael Beale has been clear that the midfielder is set to leave Glasgow with the manager in no mood to convince the wantaway star to stick around.

The Finnish star isn’t the only name being linked with the exit door either with as many as five Rangers players potentially set to quit the club in the coming days.
