Rangers star ‘to complete’ deal to Leeds United while Celtic considers signing Danish Under-21 striker

The most recent Sunday transfer news stories involving Rangers and Celtic…

After defeating Greenock Morton on Saturday, Rangers advanced to the quarterfinals of the Viaplay Cup, and Celtic will be hoping to do the same when they take on Kilmarnock at Rugby Park today.

Brendan Rodgers will face a difficult test against Killie, a Premiership foe who has had a solid start to the season, after Michael Beale‘s heavily altered team laboriously eliminated its Championship opponents to advance in the competition.

Both Glasgow clubs might still make transfers within the 11-day remaining period of the transfer market, with outgoings still anticipated. The following are the top transfer-related news stories for Sunday, August 20:

Rangers star “to complete” transfer to Leeds United

The Fourth Official claims that Glen Kamara will complete his departure from Rangers in the upcoming days and join Leeds United.

Due to a release clause that is still in effect in his Ibrox contract, the Finland international is anticipated to be available for roughly £5 million. Despite Michael Beale‘s last-week denial, it appears increasingly probable that Elland Road will be the player’s next stop.

Tyler Adams‘ permanent departure for AFC Bournemouth was a condition of Kamara‘s transfer to the EFL Championship team, and it was completed on Saturday. As a result, some money was made available for Kamara to leave for Canada.

The central midfielder’s deal was reportedly close to being agreed upon by both teams last month, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post, and interest in him has since rekindled as manager Daniel Farke looks to strengthen many outfield positions. Now, a deal might be closed as soon as next week.

Celtic is considering signing a Danish Under-21 striker.

Brendan Rodgers wants to improve his offensive options, and the Hoops are apparently thinking about signing Mathias Kvistgaarden, a striker for Brondby.

Last season, the Danish Under-21 international made 37 appearances for the Superliga team, scoring 10 goals in that time. This season, the player is off to a strong start, having already scored one goal and provided two assists in four games.

Kvistgaarden, whose contract with Brondby was extended in March to keep him with the team through 2027, has played for Denmark at various youth levels and once teamed up with current Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley against Scotland Under-21s.

The Scottish Sun reports that Celtic are considering a transfer swoop because Rodgers is eager to add another attacking option. Given that Oh Hyeon-gyu is now out due to injury and that there is a need for more depth in the striking department, Kyogo Furuhashi is the only available and healthy No. 9.
