Danny Mills has claimed that Rangers boss Steven Gerrard would be extremely disappointed to lose Ryan Kent this summer having invested a lot in the player’s development.
The former Leeds United right-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, said that Gerrard will have had words with the 23-year-old in a bid to keep him at Ibrox this summer.
Kent has started the season in electric form for the Gers and scored three goals in his first five appearances.
Football Insider revealed on Monday that Leeds are preparing to make a second offer for the winger after their initial bid of £8.5million plus add-ons was rejected.
Mills is adamant that Gerrard will try all he can to keep a hold of the former Liverpool winger.
“When you have a young player and you spend a year or so developing him, then you start to see the fruits of that labour it is very, very disappointing if you then lose that player,” he told Football Insider.
“Steven Gerrard will not want that. Gerrard will be in his ear telling him that he is at a big club and that together they can do special things at Rangers this season.
“He will be saying, “If you stay you will be playing in a winning side. You will get a lot of the ball and score a lot of goals this season. If you want to go to Leeds go, but how much are you going to play?”
“As a forward player you want to be able to get a lot of the ball and express yourself. Leeds might be struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League and not creating many chances next season.”
