Leeds United are considering a last-gasp move for Ranger star Ryan Kent this week before the window slams shut, according to the Daily Mail.
The newspaper has reported in its print edition [30 August, pg. 68] that the Whites could revive old interest that has been around for numerous windows now, with the winger in the final year of his deal.
Dan James could be going the other way at Elland Road, with a potential way out on the table to join Spurs in a loan-to-buy switch before Thursday’s deadline.
Writing in his latest daily snippet of the Window Watch, Simon Jones shared the domino effect which could happen at Elland Road before Thursday.
“Leeds United are considering whether to revive their interest in Rangers winger Ryan Kent,” he wrote.
“Tottenham retain an interest Leeds’ Dan James on loan with an option to buy.”
