English Championship club Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara on an “undisclosed” fee.
The move brings to an end a summer of transfer negotiations over the Finnish international midfielder, who has signed a four-year deal at Elland Road.
The likes of leading Rangers media partners Four Lads Had a Dream have claimed the club struck a £5m deal with promotion add-ons and a sell-on clause to sell the 27-year-old.
The Daily Mail have claimed that Leeds United could wind up paying as much as £6m for Glen Kamara should the add-ons be achieved.
