TONY’S DELIGHT AT KENT CAPTURE
COVENTRY are already benefitting from the services of one potential Premier League star in Adam Armstrong, but Tony Mowbray says Ryan Kent is another special talent worth savouring.
Armstrong, 18, has been a sensation at the Sky Blues since joining on loan from Newcastle United, hitting the ground running with five goals in his first three games.
And now Coventry have reportedly beaten off a host of Championship and League One rivals to secure Kent’s signature on loan from Liverpool until January.
The 18-year-old attacking midfielder has played at various age group levels for England, and Mowbray is thrilled to see what he can do.
“Ryan is a player we’ve been tracking for some time and we’re excited about his potential,” Mowbray said.
“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 and has plenty of pedigree.”
