Reportedly in-demand Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has confirmed that he has held talks regarding a contract extension at Ibrox [Scottish Sun].
Kamara joined the Gers in January 2019 from Dundee for the paltry fee of £50,000 and has since gone on to become a key player both in domestic and European football.
The 25-year-old’s current deal runs until the summer of 2023, so his Ibrox future is already secure.
However, with plenty of transfer speculation surrounding him this season, it looks as though Rangers want to reward his excellent performance levels with an improved deal.
In October, a TEAMtalk report asserted that 13 clubs had some level of interest in Kamara, with Leeds, Everton, Southampton, Monaco, Lille and Borussia Dortmund said to be amongst those to have scouted him.
It’s thought that he will be even more coveted and valuable after taking part in the European Championships with Finland this summer and the Gers have sprung into action after Steven Gerrard’s December plea to offer the ex-Arsenal starlet new terms.
“There’s been some talks,” confirmed Kamara [Scottish Sun]. “The season’s been good. Obviously, we’ve just become champions.”
“It’s been a success so far. I still have two years left on my contract.
“There’s still time over the summer to see what will happen.”
With Steven Davis putting pen to paper on a new deal on Saturday, it would be a major boost for the Gers if they could get Kamara to accept a bumper new contract too.
A few big players will likely be sold over the coming windows to help balance the books, but if the silky midfielder is to be one of those, the club must ensure that they are in the best possible position to negotiate with interested parties.
On Tuesday, Finland players wore special t-shirts to show their support for Kamara amid a racism row with Slavia Prague.
