The winger, who was 19 in November, has made sixteen appearances and scored one goal for Coventry this season. This was enough to convince coach Jurgen Klopp to recall the player to run the rule over him at close quarters to see if he can be useful as Liverpool aim to step up their bid to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions league with more consistent performances in the second half of the season.
Oldham-born Kent joined Liverpool at the age of seven and progressed through the Liverpool academy to become a regular member of the U21 squad. After an impressive end to the 2014–15 campaign for the reserves his performances were rewarded with a new 4 and ½-year contract in March 2015. This was followed by a call-up to the first-team squad for their 2015 pre-season tour with the player being named in Liverpool’s 30-man squad for their tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia by former manager, Brendan Rodgers before the player was allowed to move to Coventry for regular first team football.
The Kop will be delighted to see a player from their academy make the breakthrough to the first team.
