Rangers media partners Heart & Hand have claimed that it is increasingly “unlikely” Ryan Kent will remain at Ibrox beyond the summer as they confirm interest from Burnley.

The 26-year-old winger is out of contract in the summer and the newly promoted Premier League side are seemingly heading the list to secure the ex-Liverpool talent’s signature.

Rangers paid a reported £7m to sign Ryan Kent back in 2019 and it is a quite shocking indictment on the poor squad management which has plagued the club over the last few seasons that he’ll leave for nothing.

Burnley lead the Ryan Kent chase but according to Heart & Hand host David Edgar, there are also offers on the table from France and Germany as Vincent Kompany’s side prepare their final scouting missions.

“One player who is unlikely to be here next season is Ryan Kent,” David Edgar told the platform’s Daily Update (24/04/23).

“As we told you last Monday, Ryan Kent looks as though he is on his way to Burnley, they are very, very keen on him.

“They’re going to complete final scouting on him over the next couple of weeks, and I’m not sure they’ll see him at his best.

“Burnley are an offer. He does also have offers from France and Germany to consider and Ryan Kent, being the kind of guy that he is, I think they would quite appeal to him, the opportunity to go abroad.

“But barring any last minute changes of heart, then I think he’s leaving and like I say he does have options in top five leagues and it’ll be interesting to see where he goes after that.”

Rangers boss Michael Beale has been clear that he wants to keep Ryan Kent but as Burnley linger it looks like the attacker’s future is all but settled.

The Gers have been a shambles all season long and if Michael Beale insists on sticking with this squad of turgid no-hopers, then on his head be it.
