Ryan Kent has been linked with a shock return to Scotland with reports in Turkey claiming he could leave Fenerbahce on loan.

The winger left Rangers at the end of last season after five years in Glasgow but he has since struggled to make an impact at his new club.

Now reports in Turkey suggest that he could leave Fenerbahce with a Scottish and English club monitoring his progress.

Journalist Yağız Sabuncuoğlu tweeted: "Fenerbahçe can loan Ryan Kent to another team so that he can play more during the break. One team each from England and Scotland is following the player."

Reports yesterday suggested that Fenerbahce boss Ismail Kartal believes Kent has been performing "below expectations".

The two have struggled to see eye to eye at times with the 27-year-old being dropped completely from the squad back in September.

It remains to be seen where Kent will end up, but a potential return to Rangers could be on the cards if the Ibrox club are interested.

Meanwhile, Philippe Clement hopes the international break does not derail Rangers from “the story they are building together” after bringing the feelgood factor back to Ibrox over the past month.

The Belgian took the reins in mid-October following the sacking of Michael Beale and has overseen a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions consisting of six victories and a spirited draw away to Sparta Prague in the Europa League.

Having helped Gers build up such momentum in his opening four weeks in charge, Clement is intent on ensuring all of his players – including those away on international duty – maintain the correct mindset when they return to cinch Premiership action away to Aberdeen a week on Sunday.

“We will have a good training week and I’ll see if we can organise one game, we’re still looking for that,” said the manager. “The players will have a few days off, not long, three days but with a running programme – not three days without anything.

“Then we start building towards the weekend (of the Aberdeen game) with every-day training. Players who have played a lot will have a programme which is intense but they have their three days also.

“The other players who have to build more and come out of injury, they will have a tougher programme to get to the same level as the rest. We do it that way and with the internationals, we follow up how much they train and how much they play.

“But we can’t control that so you need to see how they adapt when they come back and I hope they don’t forget the story we are building here together.

“That’s always the danger when they are in a new environment with other ideas, that they forget some things. That will be interesting to see when they come back.”
