Ryan Kent, a winger for Fenerbahce, has already been linked to Leeds United, but it looks like they may now be interested in one of his colleagues.


Kent has been a long-term aim at Elland Road for a number of years, and it is rumoured that he submitted a transfer request in response to attention from Bournemouth of the Premier League and Leeds.


The 27-year-old, who only joined Turkey on a free transfer from Rangers in the summer, hasn’t had much of an impact, but the Leeds connection has undoubtedly helped.


Leeds is vying Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers of the Premier League for Osayi-Samuel, who may fetch up to £8.6 million, according to Turkish publication Star.


Fenerbahce is rumoured to not want to lose the 26-year-old this month, but he would be amenable to a return to England for any of the three interested parties.

“Can play for a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid,” says Osayi-Samuel.


Osayi-Samuel was linked to Leeds during the summer, but a deal never went through. Since then, he has started the season well at Fenerbahce, tallying two goals and four assists in 24 games.


Osayi-Samuel, who played primarily as a winger for Queens Park Rangers and Blackpool, has already made nearly 200 appearances in English football.


Osayi-Samuel has, however, spent the majority of his time playing right back in Turkey, so a move to Leeds would be unexpected.


Though Guvenc Kurtar, a former Turkey international, said he may be good enough to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona if he pushed himself, he is undoubtedly a talented player.


Leeds may be looking for a player to play down the right side given their connections to David Brooks, but Osayi-Samuel does not seem like the appropriate match.
