Liverpool’s Ryan Kent has completed a youth loan move to League One side Coventry City, the club have confirmed.

The 18-year-old has agreed to join the Sky Blues – who currently sit in second place in League One – until January, having accepted the offer of a temporary switch.

Kent was a mainstay in Liverpool’s Under-21s side last season and caught the eye of first-team manager Brendan Rodgers, who rewarded him with a place on the Reds’ pre-season tour of Asia and Australia.

Coventry boss Tony Mowbray has spoken highly of the young winger this week, lauding him for the potential impact he could have on the team:

He’s a young boy who has got a bit of pedigree because you know when they come from a big club that they’ve had a good upbringing.

The move will give Kent his first taste of senior football, as he aims to cement a place in Coventry’s starting XI for the rest of the year and perhaps prove he has a future with Liverpool.
