The Football League Paper - - INSIDE - By Joshua Richards

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.”
