Rangers will not let Ryan Kent leave Ibrox with The Sun on Sunday (30/8; page 62) reporting that Alfredo Morelos is likely to move on this summer.
Kent’s future has been a talking point for a little while. It was suggested by The Sun this week that Leeds United had had a £10 million bid for the forward rejected.
And that report noted that the Whites were preparing a £14 million offer. It was also suggested that Kent had told Steven Gerrard that he wants to stay at Rangers.
And it appears that Leeds have been dealt a further blow in their quest to land Kent.
The Sun on Sunday (30/8; page 62) has claimed that Rangers will not let both Kent and Morelos leave the club this summer. And as it is stated that the Colombian is likely to go, it would appear that Kent is going nowhere.
TBR View: Rangers fans would surely choose keeping Kent over Morelos
Morelos has been an outstanding signing for Rangers. And he deserves to be remembered fondly should he move on this summer.
However, based on how the two players have started this season, it would surely be fair to suggest that more fans would rather see Kent stay than Morelos if there is a choice.
Morelos did score twice against St Mirren. However, Kent has established himself as Rangers’s talisman. His performance against Hamilton on Saturday, for example, was scintillating.
And with Kent reportedly happy to stay, it would appear that Rangers are not going to face any problems should they continually knock back any bids that come in for him.
There was a time not so long ago where it seems that Rangers would kiss goodbye to any title hopes if they decided to let Morelos go.
It arguably shows far they have come that many supporters would probably not hesitate to let him go if the alternative was losing his teammate this summer.
