Kai Kennedy is in the middle of a transfer battle as West Ham United have a bid rejected for the Scotland youth talent Dunfermline want on loan (GL).

The cinch Championship club have an interest in signing Kennedy on loan from Rangers this season. Dunfermline manager Peter Grant did not shut down rumours at the weekend amid the speculation, but West Ham United interest may throw a spanner in the works.

West Ham United are said to have had an offer for Kennedy rejected by Rangers. The 19-year-old signed a new deal at Rangers until 2023 earlier this year but there is now interest from fellow English Premier League club Norwich City and an unnamed French team.

Kennedy spent last season on loan at Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Raith Rovers and was impressive over his two loans in the Championship. Dunfermline are hopeful of further additions to their squad before they start their Championship campaign against Greenock Morton next week.
