Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he is hoping that midfielder Glen Kamara will sign a contract extension with the Scottish champions.
There were reports in the English press yesterday suggesting that the Finnish international is likely to sign a new deal, on the condition that the Gers would listen to good offers from interested Premier League teams. Gerrard confirmed they have tabled a proposal to the player and they are now anticipating a response:
“There’s a real strong, good offer on the table for Glen – the ball is firmly in his court. I love the kid, I love the player and I’ve made it abundantly clear how much I want him to stay from a personal point of view.”
West Ham, Arsenal, Everton, Burnley, Brighton and Leeds have all been linked with Kamara over the past twelve months, with it being suggested that the Gers may allow the 25-year-old to leave if they receive a bid in excess of £10m.
A new contract would strengthen the Light Blues’ hand in any negotiations. Kamara has less than two years remaining on his current deal, so it is now a case of waiting for the midfielder to make a decision.
