Report: Liverpool to loan promising winger Ryan Kent to Swindon Town

Swindon Town

Swindon Town look set to loan Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent.

Liverpool are set to loan young winger Ryan Kent to League One outfit Swindon Town, according to a report from the Daily Star.

The Reds are keen for the 18-year-old to spend the season at the League One club, who are already providing first-team football for full-back Kevin Stewart, midfielder Jordan Williams and goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux.

The reported move will be a first of his career for creative attacking midfielder Kent, who has impressed greatly while playing for the Reds U21 side and signed a long-term contract at Anfield in March.

He also impressed during his brief cameo appearance at the County Ground during a pre-season friendly in early August, when he arrived as a second-half substitute before posing a significant attacking threat throughout the latter stages of his side's 2-1 victory over the Robins. 

Brendan Rodgers is a known fan of the club set-up at the County Ground, following comments made after Liverpool's pre-season visit to the County Ground this summer - as reported by Total Sport Swindon - which could sweeten a deal between the two sides.

A move for the 18-year-old would also link up with Brendan Rodgers' son Anton, who rescued a point for Mark Cooper's side at Bury on Saturday with a late free-kick.
