Former England international Carlton Palmer has played down the chances of Glen Kamara leaving Rangers in the near future.
Speaking to FootballFanCast, Palmer revealed that he sees no reason why Kamara might look to leave the club in the coming months, saying: “Rangers are having a fantastic season, so why would they let him go? And why would he want to leave? Obviously, you want to play in the Premier League but Rangers are going great guns at the moment.”
A string of impressive performances for the Gers this season has resulted in speculation about his future.
TEAMtalk reported back in October that Leeds, Everton and Southampton were among the trio of Premier League teams to have watched him closely this season.
The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Arsenal, but moved to Scotland to pursue first-team opportunities and has not looked back since.
Major boost for the Gers
Kamara’s move to Rangers has been one of the best success stories of the club’s transfer approach in recent years.
Back in 2019, he arrived at the club on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Dundee United for a bargain fee.
A pre-contract agreement had been completed, but the two clubs held further talks in order to bring the transfer forward.
Despite initially asking for a reported £100,000, Rangers secured a deal for an amazing £45,000.
Taking advantage of players coming towards the end of their contracts is nothing new for Rangers, but if and when the time comes to sell Kamara, they are in line for a huge profit.
It is a method that Rangers continue to utilise, amid rising links to Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram, who could make a bargain move to Scotland in the near future.
Transfermarkt only value Kamara at just over £1million as things stand, but given the rising Premier League interest and continued impressive performances, that figure is only going to be heading in one direction.
