Coventry boss talks up Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent

Coventry City boss is disappointed not to have Liverpool's Ryan Kent available.

Talented teenager Ryan Kent is still waiting to make a big impact at Liverpool, but it appears he has already done so at League One Coventry City.

Kent was recently with the Sky Blues until being recalled by the Reds, and Coventry City boss Tony Mowbray has blamed a dip in form partly on the winger's departure.

Mowbray told the Coventry Telegraph: "Things have changed quite considerably at the back and one of the other things we’ve missed is the likes of young Ryan Kent who gave us break-away speed.

"Ryan Kent going back changed the dynamic of the forward players."

Coventry have lost their last three games and fallen outside the play-off spots in League One.

Kent, 19, made 17 appearances for Coventry earlier in the campaign, netting once and providing one assist, but evidently his impact went way beyond purely goals.

He was given a chance by Liverpool to play in the FA Cup, featuring for 57 minutes in the draw with Exeter in January, but since then he has been back with the under-21 side.

It might be in Coventry's interests to approach the Reds to see if they can re-sign Kent on an emergency loan before the deadline in March. Taking part in a late play-off push would surely be beneficial for his experience.
