Rangers star would be perfect replacement for wanted Leeds United man

Glen Kamara proved just how good he can be during the second half of last season at Ibrox.

The Telegraph has linked Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips with a switch to Premier League newcomers Aston Villa.

Should a deal go through it would represent a poor start to the summer for the Whites, as they look to build a squad capable of winning promotion next season.

The report suggests that Villa will open with a bid of £14 million, although closer to £20 million will be required to tempt Leeds into a sale.

 

Although Bielsa will desperately want to keep Phillips around the club, he might well be preparing contingency plans ahead of a worst case scenario.

One man who should be on any shortlist of targets to replace the academy graduate is Rangers star, Glen Kamara.

The 23-year-old is a similar type of player to Phillips and looks set for a bright future in the game.

Signed from Dundee for just £45,000 (Daily Record), Kamara played 16 games for Steven Gerrard’s team last season. He became a key component of the Rangers midfield, highlighting tremendous battling qualities.

The Finland international this week told The Sunday Post that playing in the Premier League would be ‘a dream’. Of course, Leeds can’t offer that right now but they do hold a strong desire to win promotion next season.

That could sway Kamara to buy into the project and if Phillips is sold for £20 million, the Rangers man would probably be obtained for a fraction of that.

Leeds would obviously rather keep hold of their own sensational youngster, but if they can’t Kamara would be the perfect replacement.
