Leeds United are pursuing a deal for Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent on loan, the Yorkshire Evening Post report.

Landing Kent on loan would be impressive business for the Whites, as it would show a big climbdown from Liverpool.

 

Just in March, the Liverpool Echo reported the Reds were unlikely to let Kent head out on loan.

Furthermore they were said to be seeking 'in excess of £12 million' for the winger.

Three months has passed and it seems Liverpool's stance may have softened since, even if they are yet to make up their minds.

Leeds are battling against Rangers for Kent's signature, where he spent last season on loan.

Kent has experience in the Championship with Barnsley and Bristol City.

Neither were knockout successes, and a move to Leeds would be more challenging to him than Rangers.

That's the angle Leeds should push, that he should want to join up and test himself in a league where he has unfinished business.
