Leeds United end interest in James Milner

Leeds United end interest in James Milner Leeds United have ended their interest in bringing Liverpool midfielder James Milner back to Elland Road, according to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, Phil Hay, cited by the Liverpool Echo. The 33-year-old has admitted in the past that he would be keen on returning to his boyhood club, and the Whites were reportedly keen on striking a deal over the summer. However, following Leeds’ failure to earn promotion back to the Premier League, the Whites will no longer attempt to lure Milner back to Elland Road. Journalist Hay confirmed that the club will not be making an offer for the player when asked by a fan over Milner’s possible return to Leeds.

Rangers have been frustrated this summer in their pursuit of Ryan Kent . SkySports report Kent is keen to make the switch, although is keeping his options open amid interest from French and Belgian clubs. Rangers have not yet been willing to meet Liverpool’s £7 million asking price, and time is

Ryan Kent (born 11 November 1996) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger for Scottish Premiership club Rangers .

The Reds would reportedly prefer to send the youngster out on loan again, so a move to the Whites in the Championship could be a realistic option following the success of Harry Wilson at Derby County.

The Championship is arguably a more competitive league than the Scottish Premiership, so if Kent can continue his consistent displays in England’s second tier next year, it would more than likely increase his current £12m valuation.

Newly promoted Aston Villa are also keen on the youngster, however, Dean Smith’s side would more than likely want to sign the player on a permanent basis due to the Premier League restricting sides to just two loans between clubs in the same division.
