Kent enjoyed a magnificent spell in the Championship last season on loan at Barnsley, where the youngster made 47 appearances ending the season by winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award.

Having had such a successful stint in the second tier, the Reds hope that Kent can replicate his performances and finish the latter half of the season well, following such limited opportunities in Germany.

The 21-year-old will join fellow academy products Sheyi Ojo, Connor Randall and Pedro Chirivella who are all currently loaned out should he secure a move this month.
