Ryan Kent is a player who Leeds United are getting linked with again.

It’s not a surprise. He’s a player who Leeds put a £10m bid in for last summer, only to see it rejected by Rangers.

And it’s been a very quiet window for Leeds so far.

However, Rangers are on the cusp of greatness. They’re 20 points ahead of Celtic in the Premiership and on the brink of stopping Celtic from getting to ten titles in a row.

We can’t see Kent leaving in this window even if Leeds were still interested.

However, the summer could be a different matter. If Rangers do win the title then you could see a number of players decide to leave at the top.

Kent could be one. He must surely harbour a desire to play in the Premier League and if Bielsa liked him last summer, the chances are he likes him now.

We’ve seen a lot of him over the past year and we’ve liked what we’ve seen, although he has been off the boil for the past few weeks.

And the big question is, do Leeds really need another winger?

We might do. If Helder Costa doesn’t improve then we could see him getting moved on in the summer. And Kent does offer versatility in attack.

The Yorkshire Evening Post asked the Leeds fans if they’d still want him at the club and while responses were mixed, there were plenty of supporters who want to see him at Elland Road.

And one fan said, “If we get him, can we sell Costa then?”

Here are the best reactions…
