Leeds United are expecting to fail in their bids to take Liverpool wingers Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent on loan for the coming season, according to Football Insider.
Both players spent the previous season out on loan with Derby County and Rangers respectively but are not expected to be sent out on loan again, with both looking to move permanently if first-team opportunities are looking scarce.
And with Wilson valued at £25million and Kent at £10million at least, according to the report, Leeds face very little chance of securing a deal for either player.
During his spell with the Rams, Wilson scored 18 times in all competitions and assisting six more for his teammates, helping Frank Lampard’s side to reach the Championship play-off final.
Kent also had an excellent spell with Rangers, scoring six and assisting six in 23 SPL appearances as Steven Gerrard’s side pushed Celtic close for the Scottish title.
It is clear that a new winger remain’s Leeds’ priority for the summer window with a move for Wolves winger Helder Costa a possibility as is another loan for Manchester City’s Jack Harrison.
This was always a bit of a pipe dream for Leeds I believe.
It was well worth enquiring about. Had either come off they would have been a very good addition but not landing them should cause too much disruption.
Moves for either Costa or Harrison remain in the offing and both would be excellent additions for the coming season as Leeds look to break out of the second-tier.
