Ryan Kent insists he's "happy" and "settled" at Rangers and he is in no rush to move away from Ibrox.

The winger was the subject of a £10million bid from English Premier League new boys Leeds United, an offer that was immediately rejected.

With the Light Blues gunning for the league title and the chance to stop rivals Celtic claiming ten-in-a-row, selling their most impressive attacker through the season's first six games would represent a huge blow.

Fortunately for them, Kent insists he's in no hurry to go anywhere. Thanks to a series of loan moves while at Liverpool, the 23-year-old has already played for six different clubs so far in his career.

After initially arriving on a one-year loan, Kent sealed a £7million permanent switch last summer and has proven himself to be one of the most popular members of the first-team squad in the eyes of the support.

Speaking after being awarded the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month award for August, he said: "My dialogue with the club was that I am in a very good position and enjoying my football.

"As long as I am playing football and enjoying it I am happy where I am. I've always wanted to finally find a club that I am settled.

"I have had some beneficial experiences throughout my career and I am now in a position that I can put it all together and enjoy my football at Rangers Football Club."
