Arsenal and Leeds blow as £10m-rated midfielder signs new contract with Europa League side

Glen Kamara has penned a new contract until 2025 at Rangers – just weeks after being linked with Premier League sides including Leeds and Arsenal.

Kamara, 25, has ended speculation surrounding his future at Ibrox – by penning a four-year deal. The Finland star has been linked with an exit.

Back in the summer, Arsenal and Leeds were linked – among numerous others. Give Me Sport said Arsenal wanted the ball-playing midfielder.

Of course, Kamara came through the ranks at Arsenal and a return to North London might have proved tempting. Leeds, were also linked with a move.

Give Me Sport reported Leeds were looking at both Kamara and Ryan Kent. The Mail say Rangers rated Kamara at a fee in the region of £10million.

But instead, Rangers have ended any doubts regarding their midfielder’s future by securing his future for the next four years – until 2025.

Rangers secure Kamara: Arsenal and Leeds – could they tempt him?

Just because Rangers have secured the player’s future, does not mean Arsenal and Leeds – and any others – have no chance of signing him.

What it does mean is that Leeds and Arsenal would have to pay full price for Kamara – rather than a cut-price fee which both might have hoped.

Arsenal lost Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Dani Ceballos in summer – only bringing in Albert Lokonga. Leeds also need a midfielder.

They tried to get a whole host of players but failed to do so – including Huddersfield’s Lewis O’Brien. Now, Rangers have increased Kamara’s value.
