Coventry City have signed Liverpool midfielder Ryan Kent on an youth loan deal until January 16th.

The Sky Blues have snapped up the highly-rated 18-year old who was recently on international duty with the England Under-20s squad.

After an impressive 2014/15 season, Kent's performances were rewarded with a call-up to the first-team squad for the 2015 pre-season tour.

Oldham-born Kent made his first-team debut when he came off the bench in the 2-1 win over Australian A-League side Brisbane Roar and was handed a first-team squad number for the Reds this season.

City boss Tony Mowbray said: "Ryan is a player we've been tracking for some time and we're really excited about his potential.

"With the injury to James Maddison, I felt it was important to bring in a player of a similar ilk and someone who possesses that technical ability in forward areas.

"He can handle the ball, play off both feet, play anywhere behind the main striker and has plenty of pedigree having featured for the England Under-20s last week.

"There is a lot of competition in the squad at the moment but we hope he can come here and enjoy the environment we've created, and flourish."
