Reports in the media this morning are that Leeds United and Garry Monk are keen to bring in Liverpool’s Ryan Kent in at the end of the season. The midfielder has been in good form at the South Yorkshire side as we know, scoring against us a few weeks ago.
Kent has made 28 appearances for Barnsley this season, scoring twice. He has also been capped for England at under 18 and 20 levels. He is highly rated and journalist Alan Nixon has made a point of saying Leeds will try for the player even if they were to gain promotion this season. The winger has been impressive on loan from Liverpool and there will be plenty of interested parties once his loan finishes at Oakwell. If Leeds can get in early and make Liverpool and Kent aware of their interest it could be key to any deal.
Leeds have strengthened in the wide areas in January, Alfonso Pedraza and Mo Barrow both arriving from Villarreal and Swansea City. It adds to the players already here, Souelymane Doukara, Stuart Dallas, Hadi Sacko and Kemar Roofe. Kent would certainly fit the bill at Leeds United, young, improving and with bags of potential for Monk to work with. Monk has made a point this week by saying he wants the club to be more organised in the future regarding transfers.
