27-year-old connected with Leeds United move; rejecting Steven Gerrard to join third-placed club

Leeds United fans will not have been surprised to see Ryan Kent linked with a return to Elland Road ahead of January, but the star now appears to be ready for a surprise move to Croatian football.

Kent, 27, was linked with Leeds several times when at Rangers, where he starred under manager Steven Gerrard. A key member of Rangers’ unbeaten Premiership campaign in 2020-21.

In addition, he was a significant member of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team that reached the Europa League final. He moved to Fenerbahce throughout the summer. However, Kent’s visit to Turkey has not gone as planned. So far, only one league start has occurred.

According to reports, Leeds, Bournemouth, and Rangers are interested in signing before January. Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United have also expressed interest. Then, Steven Gerrard is alleged to have made a £3.4 million offer.

The prospect of a reunion with his Al-Ettifaq squad in Saudi Arabia, where he has already signed Gini Wijnaldum, Jack Hendry, Moussa Dembele, Jordan Henderson, and Demarai Gray. However, Kent has rejected Gerrard.

Ryan Kent joins Dinamo Zagreb after being linked with Leeds.

According to Turkish broadcaster NTV Sport, a loan move to Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb is in its ‘final stages’. Zagreb needs a boost as they now lie third, six points behind first position.

It appears that they will trust Kent to get their season back on track. Leeds have shown no interest in a trade beyond first appreciation, despite having options on the sides.

Cree Summerville and Dan James have been on fire, and Willy Gnonto is back after missing the win over Preston. Jaidon Anthony and Ian Poveda are further alternatives. So Kent is heading to Croatia, not Yorkshire.
