      Ryan Kent Player Thread (on loan at Rangers)
      Jan 26, 2015 02:35:08 pm
      Ryan is another youngster who has blossomed this season.  He's only just turned 16 last November yet is featuring regularly for the u21's, u18's and has been a stallwart of the UEFA Youth Cup squad.

      Another very exciting prospect.

      Ryan joined Liverpool as an U9 player and is a regular member of the U18 squad.

      He will also feature for the U21 squad in the 2014-15 season.

      A dynamic winger who can play on the left or right side, Kent loves to take on defenders and cause endless problems for the opposition.

      18 not 16 ;) haha

      Only managed to catch him play a few times, not kept up with the academy teams as much as I'd like but he looked very good.

      not seen much now that LFC chose to rob the fans and charge for LFCTV but i suppose it was always going to happen as its a business at the end of the day to FSG so why would they give it away for free. been told he looks good so lets hope some of these players do a sterling and break into the 1st team so we dont have to always buy from overseas.

      Would've been epic if his parents named him Clark instead of Ryan :D

      Anyway, I'd be curious to see how Kent or Canos does as a #9. From what I've seen, I think both would be capable.

      Ryans highlight reel from todays mini derby.  I haven't seen the game but I hear he had a good game considering it's his first since his injury.  Couple of cracking goals too.

      Hope the link works I don't know how else to post it.

      Sounds like he's off on a season long loan to MK Dons or Huddersfield Town. 

      Great news that we've got lads being sought by Championship level Clubs and it's a big move for him being one of our younger u21's.  I like the kid so hopefully he makes the most of it and comes back a better player.

      So glad he's had a few run outs in pre season, he really impressed me in the youth games last season and has deserved to showcase is talents on a bigger stage.

      Im sure there'll be a few Clubs wanting him on loan this season, I'm also sure he'll relish the opportunity and put his all into claiming and keeping a starting spot.

      Liverpool FC consider loan offers from Championship clubs for Ryan Kent

      17:44, 4 AUGUST 2015
      BY JAMES PEARCE


      Reds starlet set to leave on temporary basis - but not to Swindon

      Liverpool are considering a number of loan offers from Championship clubs for highly-rated youngster Ryan Kent.

      Boss Brendan Rodgers is prepared to let the 18-year-old attacking midfielder leave on a temporary basis in order to secure first-team football.

      League One outfit Swindon Town were hoping to make Kent their fourth loan signing of the summer from Liverpool having already snapped up Kevin Stewart, Jordan Williams and Lawrence Vigouroux.

      However, Swindon are increasingly resigned to him going elsewhere with Kent being pursued by a number of clubs in the division above them.

      Swindon chairman Lee Power, who held talks with Rodgers after Sunday’s friendly with the Reds when Kent made a stylish cameo, told BBC Radio Wiltshire: “I said to Brendan I was going to put him (Ryan) in the boot of the car and keep him here for a month!

      “You could see the talent the boy has and the problem is there are many teams in the Championship that want him. We had a long chat with Brendan after and he explained that to us.

      “I know that Brendan is keen for him to come to us because he said in the press that we were one of the few clubs that they would like to loan their players out to, which is quite nice for the football club.

      “Attracting someone like Ryan is going to be difficult and looking very unlikely at the moment, but if he was to come then it would be a huge signing.”

      Oldham-born Kent joined Liverpool at the age of seven and has established himself as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the Kirkby Academy. Rodgers included him in the first-team squad for the tour of the Far East and Australia and he came off the bench against Brisbane Roar.

      Looks like Kent will be off to the Championship for a season.

      are we looking to loan our young strikers out and give the u21 striker positions to the likes of Origi and Yesil, to give them as much game time as possible? they are our young strikers at the top of the pecking order, it makes sense to me to give our next wave of talent opportunities to see how they go at other clubs whilst doing everything we can to get Yesil and Origi up and running.

      Fantastic news for Ryan, now the hard work begins.  I'm sure he'll do fine with Karl and the Dons, they play really good football but it'll be a big challenge as they try to establish themselves in the Championship.

          Promising youngster Ryan Kent has signed on a season long loan with Championship club MK Dons, their club’s official Twitter account has confirmed.

          The 18-year-old shone during a cameo appearance for the first-team in a friendly versus Swindon before the start of the campaign, and after regularly impressing for the Under-21s, management felt it was time for him to test his mettle elsewhere.

          The teenager prides himself on his acceleration, dribbling and ability to shoot from range.

          He’s comfortable on the right or left, and has been used centrally as well – bagging two in two games for England Under-18s so far.

          Kent joins his fellow wing flyer Sheyi Ojo on loan in the Championship, with his Under-21 team-mate from last term spending the season with Wolves.

          Both will be hoping to impress in a similar manner to Jordon Ibe, who did so well with Derby in 2014/15 that Brendan Rodgers recalled him to Liverpool – and he’s since established himself as a vital member of the first-team squad.

          Breaking through at Liverpool is going to be very hard for anybody, regardless of talent, but Rodgers has shown time and time again that if a player is good enough, he’s old enough.

      Excellent news. MK Dons play some decent football so he should fit in. He'll no doubt just be a squad player but he'll benefit from the experienced nonetheless.

      I wonder if Karl coached him when he has at the Academy? 

      It's up to him now to prove he's good enough to start and once he gets that, prove he's good enough to keep it.  There's no real pressure on him though, he's still only 18 and may have to go through 2 or 3 loan spells before we see him reach his true potential.

      Great opportunity though, so I hope he makes a name for himself.

      Scored his first senior and opening goal for Coventry tonight and rumour has it, Jurgens recalled him from loan. 

      Edit:  Not a rumour.

      Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp recalls Ryan Kent from Coventry City loan spell

      The Sky Blues hope 18-year-old can return after the new Liverpool's new boss takes a closer look at the Reds talent.Coventry City maintained their promotion push with a dramatic 4-3 victory against Barnsley last night.

      But they will be forced to revamp their team for Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Northampton Town with Adam Armstrong and Ryan Kent, who supplied three of the goals at the Ricoh Arena, ruled out by their parent clubs.

      Kent, in fact, has been recalled by Liverpool – temporarily, hopes City boss Tony Mowbray – because new Anfield chief Jürgen Klopp wants to run the rule over his young assets.

      Quality finish that, like that he's been recalled too, the boss clearly wants to assess everything and it can only be good for the lad if he's given a bit of coaching time with Jürgen.

      Even if it's simply to state the goals for the lad and what he should be focussing on in terms of development.

      I think he's got that little big of stardust about him this lad. We're very good at Liverpool at exulting every youngster who comes in and building them up completely unrealistically. Over the last few seasons Pacheco, Suzo, Illori, Teixera, Rossiter, Kelly, Chiravella and the like have had wholly unrealistic expectations put on their shoulders.

      It's my turn now, I think this kid is good enough to be an absolute star. He's got quality in everything he does, and while he's no doubt not good enough to feature regularly in a Liverpool team for 2-3 years (very few 18 year olds are), I absolutely think he will be given time.

      What I like about Kent whenever I've seen him play is his desire and fight on the pitch. I think he has a very good chance of making it with us or at the high level.

      With him returning to train with Klopp during international break, I hope he impresses!

      I'm intrigued and excited that Jürgen seems to have taken a shine to Ryan. 

      He travelled to Coventry for a night game in his first week to watch him play but he wasn't even on the bench.  This prompted the comments he made about the loan situation at the Club needing to be looked at to see if/how it's benefiting both the players and the Club.

      Now he's been asked to return to train with the 1st team during the International break so he can give him the once over.  He must be over the moon.

      His loan deal ends in January doesn't it? Hopefully we're still in a few cups by then, wouldn't mind seeing him get some minutes for the first team.

      Doing well is the lad, great interview.

      http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/sport/football/football-news/loan-coventry-city-star-ryan-10515998?

      On-loan Coventry City star Ryan Kent helped by Liverpool FC heroes Steve McManaman and Robbie Fowler

      Ryan Kent has already proved that he can run with the ball like Steve McManaman – and now he’s aiming to master the art of left-foot finishing exemplified by Robbie Fowler.

      Kent revealed he has received specialist coaching from the two Anfield legends as Liverpool work on developing his massive potential.

      And having netted just one goal in his 11 loan appearances at Coventry – a stunning right-foot swerver against Barnsley – he is particularly determined to improve his goals tally.

      “I don’t mind playing anywhere along the front three,” he explained, “and I get more goals from the No.10 position. But at the moment I probably prefer playing out on the left, getting the ball, going at players one v one and cutting in on my right to shoot.

      “Recently I’ve been playing more on the right but when I cut in my left-foot shooting hasn’t been as good as it has been in the past.

      "I’m two-footed but I do prefer shooting with my right because I feel I’ve got more accuracy instead of lashing at it with my left and that’s definitely something I need to work on in training.

      “I’ve got a lot of experience around me, especially here at Coventry, back at Liverpool and in the England camp as well. At Liverpool we had ex players coming in – Steve McManaman helped me with my dribbling and Robbie Fowler with my finishing.”

      Kent was used as an impact player in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Bradford City, where his electrifying pace spearheaded a late push for the winner, and he accepts that he has to fight for his League One opportunities.

      “Coming into a first-team environment I’ve come to terms with the fact that you’re not always going to get your own way,”he said.

      “That’s a learning curve, something I’ll have to adjust to and improve – making the right decisions at the right times and picking my moments when to go one v one.

      “You always want to play but I didn’t think i had my best game against Gillingham at the weekend. We’ve got a good squad and there are always players who can come in and perform well so there’s never a definite position in the team.

      “I like to think I made an impact when I went on at Bradford – we needed to get that energy going forward again and I created a few chances.”

      'He's faster than Gareth Bale!' - Alan and Andy on Ryan Kent

      Sky Blues boss Tony Mowbray has based his tactics this year on the pace of Kent, Adam Armstrong and Jacob Murphy, explaining: “Every successful football team has speed and power in their ranks. It’s something we identified at the start of the season.

      “There are time when we have to defend and we have worked hard on keeping shape behind the ball and aware that on the change of possession we can hit back with a real threat of speed going the other way.”

      Speaking minutes after Tuesday’s match, Mowbray mused: “It’s an unbelievable sight watching him in full flow – have you ever seen a player travel so fast with the ball?”

      And Kent is fully aware of his prime asset, explaining: “The game’s evolving and in the new generation of football you have to be so quick mentally and physically.

      “All players seem to be quicker than they were in the past but you see quite a lot of players who are really quick but can’t carry the ball with them.

      “I think that’s a good trait of mine to be able to travel with the ball at speed especially something I’m going to work on.”
