Rangers winger Ryan Kent comments on future amid Leeds transfer link

Rangers winger Ryan Kent has hinted he is focusing on his work at club Ibrox.

The 24-year-old, who joined Rangers for £ 7million permanently from Liverpool, has impressed heavily under Steven Gerrard.

He not only helped Gers win the Scottish Premier League title but has also impressed in the Europa League campaign this season.

Kent has managed 12 goals and 14 assists in 50 appearances this season, and his impressive form has caught the attention of several clubs, including Premier League club Leeds.

The former Liverpool winger has insisted that while it is nice to see his name linked to a move to ‘big’ Premier League clubs, he is currently focused on his work at Rangers.

“It’s just playing in the present. It’s nice to be linked to other big clubs, ”Kent told the Scottish sun.

“But, you have to understand your duty where you are at. And as long as I’m at the Rangers, I’ll always give them 100%.

“I love this place and the club has done so much for me As long as I’m here I’ll be totally focused on the Rangers.

“The Champions League will be massive, it’s the biggest stage in club football, being able to test yourself against the best players in the world and the best teams in the world.”

SL view

Leeds are longtime fans of Kent, and the Whites could make a move for him again this summer, especially if Helder Costa leaves the club.

The Whites are keen to add a quality midfielder to their ranks, but Marcelo Bielsa could be tempted to move to Kent, after another impressive season in Scotland.

Kent has a contract at the club until 2023, and Rangers are expected to charge a hefty transfer fee for him, in case he moves on.

It seems Kent isn’t too keen on leaving Ibrox just yet. He wants to play in the Champions League next season, and that’s a huge incentive for him to stay put.
