Former Rangers and Scotland striker Kris Boyd has said that he expects Finnish midfielder Glen Kamara to leave the club this January, despite Gers’ boss Steven Gerrard coming out and saying that he is going nowhere.
This will come as excellent news to Leeds United, who have been heavily linked with a move for the £8 million rated international midfielder.
Previous reports has suggested that Gerrard was keen to keep Kamara at the club, but Kris Boyd says he sees more logic in selling him than keeping him.
As quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post, the former striker said: “Glen Kamara continues to look like a steal at £50,000. Although reading between the lines it looks like he could be the player who gets sold in January.
“Going by their financial results, someone will be shown the door, regardless of what the club says, and given how top heavy Gerrard is with midfield players, Kamara is the one who has a market value.”
As Kris Boyd eluded to, Kamara only joined the club for an astonishing £50,000 back in January 2019 as his contract at former club Dundee was expiring.
Rangers now have the opportunity to make an incredible profit in the 24-year-old, who will want to get maximum game time in order to ensure he is selected for the Finland national squad after the Scandanavian side qualified for the first time in their history.
Leeds United would offer Kamara regular football, and potentially a chance to play in the top flight in England next season, as the Whites are one of the favourites to secure promotion.
