Rangers transfer news as Fenerbache offer three-year deal to sign Ryan Kent this summer
Rangers star Ryan Kent has been offered a three-year contract with an option for a further year to join Fenerbache this summer, according to Turkish outlet Takvim.
The former Liverpool winger looks set to leave Ibrox after five years at the end of the season, with Michael Beale previously hinting that they were unable to come to an agreement over a new contract recently.
The 26-year-old has also been linked with moves to Burnley and Leeds United in recent months but it seems as though Turkish giants Fenerbache have stolen a march on signing the outgoing Ibrox star.
“Fenerbache, which started the transfer work for next season, included Kent, who plays for Rangers in the transfer list for the left wing.
“Fenerbache offered a 3+1 year contract to English left winger Kent, whose contract with Rangers will expire.
“It has been learned that the Yellow-Navy Blues are working hard for this transfer and want to finish the transfer by the end of the season”, as revealed by Takvim [2 May]

It seems an Ibrox departure at the end of the season is inevitable for Kent as he seeks to run the remaining two months on his current Rangers contract, and a move to Fenerbache is one he may be tempted by given their consistent exploits in Europe.
Kent is certainly a player who excites and gets bums off seats but these moments are very fleeting. There’s no doubt, he’s a talented player but his inconsistencies could certainly derail him in becoming a top-end English talent, and it seems as though his career could be heading into oblivion at Fenerbache.
Whether a move to Burnley still remains on the table for the winger is still left to be seen but Fenerabache really seem intent on bringing him to Turkey this summer. Many could claim that’s a step up or a step down from Rangers which is debatable but there’s a long way to go before Kent can be considered a player capable of playing for the elite sides.
And if he moves to Turkey, that move to an elite English club arguably won’t be on the cards. He’ll probably need to stay in the UK if he is to remain in the spotlight for a future big move, but the ball is in his court on that matter. Nonetheless, there are some Gers fans who will be glad to see the back of him given his worrying inconsistencies.
Just three goals in 29 Scottish Premier League games really isn’t good enough, especially for a player as good as he is, in the position he plays and the fact that he’s playing regularly.
Rangers will be in the Champions League next season if all goes to plan, and hopefully competing for trophies again, whether Kent is part of the club or not.
