Liverpool winger Ryan Kent will not return to Scottish Premiership giants Rangers this summer according to the latest reports in the British media.

Ryan Kent has been turning the heads of some clubs on the back of a stellar campaign for Rangers last season.

According to the specific report from the stables of the London Evening Standard, Ryan Kent won’t go back to Ibrox with Rangers unable to pay the £12m asking price slapped on him.

Ryan Kent was the star player for Scottish club Rangers in the last campaign under the guidance of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and he was rewarded for his impressive performances for the former Scottish champions.

The 22-year-old bagged the PFA Young Player of the Year Award at the end of the season as Rangers finished in the second spot behind champions Celtic who have now won three trophies in three straight seasons including the Scottish Premiership title.

Apart from Rangers, Ryan Kent has also been linked with Leeds United and Aston Villa.

The £12m asking price won’t be too much for both Leeds United and Aston Villa especially.

Aston Villa have the financial might and will want to sign Ryan Kent to boost their squad ahead of their return to the Premier League.
