Rangers could now earn up to £6 million via the sale of Glen Kamara with the 2021 Scottish Premiership champion set to undergo a medical at Leeds United.
And that, from a financial perspective at least, represents a superb bit of business.
Rangers are, after all, due to make a colossal profit on a player who joined from Dundee for just £50,000 four years ago. Not to mention one who is yet to kick a ball in anger during 2023/24 after tumbling down Mick Beale’s Ibrox pecking order.
What’s more, Glen Kamara has just two years left on his contract. It is hard to imagine, if Rangers had not found a buyer this month, that the Finland international would earn the Glasgow giants anywhere near £6 million in future windows.
Glen Kamara is leaving Rangers for Leeds United
According to the Daily Mail, a saga which has rumbled on throughout the summer at Rangers is finally reaching a conclusion. Kamara will head south of the border today before undergoing a medical at Elland Road.

Leeds and Rangers have agreed a fee too. One which, with add-ons included, could rise to an eye-watering £6 million.
That is far more than the sort of fee floated in the media recently. A welcome windfall which could free up funds for Beale to bring in additions to a backline breached five times by PSV Eindhoven during Wednesday’s Champions League play-off humbling in the Netherlands.
“It’s clear Glen Kamara is the player who’s definitely going to move on in this window,” Beale told Yahoo Sport a couple of weeks ago.
“If that goes (through), then we’re not far off from where we want to be in terms of close to breaking even on our net spend.”
Kamara was conspicuous by his absence again at the Phillips Stadium; Beale choosing Nicolas Raskin, John Lundstram and new signing Jose Cifuentes while bringing Ryan Jack off the bench.
