Dunfermline Athletic are set to seal the loan signing of Scotland youth international Kai Kennedy, amid interest from West Ham United (GL).
The English Premier League club have submitted three bids for the teenage winger currently at Rangers. West Ham United lodged a final bid of around £1 million but Kennedy will instead remain with the cinch Premiership champions, moving to Dunfermline for experience.
Kennedy spent last season on loan at Raith Rovers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle, impressing during his season in the Championship. West Ham United have caught on to his potential, but with his Rangers deal set to run until 2023, Steven Gerrard’s side want to get him regular senior minutes.
Peter Grant didn’t deny interest in Kennedy at the weekend as the Dunfermline manager acknowledged the young winger’s potential and current ability. West Ham United might be calling – and remain interested – but Kennedy is set to be available for Dunfermline’s final Premier Sports Cup group stage match against Stenhousemuir on Saturday.
