A report from Football Insider has claimed that Scottish Premiership side Rangers have reached a “verbal agreement” to bring in winger Ryan Kent on loan this summer.

Earlier this summer, it was widely reported that Championship pair Middlesbrough and Leeds United were among the sides to be interested in bringing Liverpool winger Ryan Kent in on loan for the 2019/20 season, with the possibility of a permanent deal also being mentioned.

Now, however, it has been claimed that Kent has verbally agreed to make a loan move to Rangers – where he spent last season on loan with Steven Gerrard. And, with a verbal agreement in place, providing that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sanctions a loan move away, Kent will head back to Ibrox.

Leeds instead opted to move on to other targets, completing deals for Helder Costa and Jack Harrison, while Jack Clarke completed a move to Spurs, returning on loan for the 2019/20 season.

Middlesbrough, on the other hand, are yet to bring in a new winger, and Jonathan Woodgate will be hoping that a new man will make his way through the door before the start of the new season.

The 22-year-old played 43 games for Rangers across all competitions last season, netting six goals and providing nine assists along the way. His form earned him the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year award, beating tough competition to the award. Now, with a deal in place with the Scottish club, it awaits to be seen if anyone will make a late hijack attempt.
