After a successful loan deal at League One Coventry City, it appears that Ryan Kent’s time with the Sky Blues is over, according to a report in the Liverpool Echo.
The Echo report that 19-year old Kent will return to Liverpool’s Melwood training base after what they term “his productive loan spell at Coventry City.” The young Oldham-born winger has made 16 League One appearances for Coventry this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist.

The Echo report that Kent was contacted by Liverpool yesterday for discussions about the possibility of a recall to Anfield just four months after his loan to Coventry began. The report also mentions that a possible cause for his sanctioned return to the Liverpool set-up – the Reds mounting injury situation.
With Jordan Henderson being the latest injury casualty, the Echo intimate that “the return of Kent…will provide the manager with further options as Liverpool fight through a spell of seven games in January.”
Kent, who has come through the youth ranks at Anfield since signing on at the Academy aged 7, and is a current England U20 international, featured for Liverpool in their first team tour of the Far East and Australia during the 2015 pre-season so does have big game experience with the Reds.
However, Liverpool’s gain will be Coventry’s loss as Kent was an ever-present choice in the first tea squad at the Ricoh Arena since is loan signing, the only two games he missed were when he was on international duty wit hthe England set-up.
