Leeds outbid by Rangers for Liverpool winger Ryan Kent

Leeds United made a late bid to beat Rangers to the signing of Liverpool winger Ryan Kent.

The Liverpool Echo says Kent was close to joining Leeds, but their £4.5million bid for the player was rebuffed by the Reds close to the closure of the window last month.

Liverpool instead agreed to a £7.5million fee that has seen Kent swap Merseyside for Glasgow.

Leeds will have hoped that a possible transfer would have boosted their chances of promotion from the Championship.

But this was not to be, with Leeds settling on boosting their attacking ranks with Eddie Nketiah, Helder Costa, Jack Clarke - returning on loan from Tottenham - and Jack Harrison all on loan.
