Mills Exclusive: Leeds target move 'on the cards' after 'Unusual' development
Leeds United summer transfer target Ryan Kent might “have his eye on moving” after he changed his agent, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Whites and England full-back claimed it was “unusual” that the attacker had changed representation.
This site revealed last week Kent had ditched the Crown football agency and was now being represented by his family, including brother Casper Kent.
The 24-year-old continued his excellent start to the season by grabbing a goal and an assist against Aberdeen on Sunday.
The Light Blues are keen to reward Kent’s form with a new deal and it remains to be seen whether the latest development will have a major impact on negotiations.
Leeds United were interested in signing the former Liverpool man in the summer and had a £10million bid rejected by Rangers.

And Mills has suggested Kent changing agents means his head may have been turned.
He told Football Insider: “He might possibly have his eye on moving.
“Maybe he feels that his agent is not quite doing what he wants him to do or their ideas aren’t quite aligned.
“It’s fairly unusual for players to change agents that quickly, especially when he’s been doing deals fairly regularly for him.
“Maybe he’s just thinking ‘right okay, If I’m gonna get this move, I need somebody else to really push it through.’ A move may be on the cards.”
Kent has started all but one of Rangers’ games this season and has scored six goals and provided seven assists in 20 appearances across all competitions.
Since his initial loan move from Anfield in 2018, he has 20 goals and 20 assists in 96 games for Steven Gerrard’s side.
