Leeds United reject Rangers bid for defender

Per a report from Football League World, Rangers have had an undisclosed offer for Leeds United defender Charlie Cresswell turned down by the Yorkshire club. The report claims that the 20-year-old is a target for the Scottish Premiership runners-up who will aim to bring him to Ibrox this summer.

Cresswell is an England under 21 international who spent last season on loan at Millwall in the EFL Championship and he is under contract at Elland Road until 2025. With the Whites set to play in the second tier next season it is expected that the Preston born youth academy graduate would be given a proper chance in the first team squad if they can keep a hold of him.
