Three reasons Leeds United must win the race to sign Ryan Kent on loan
According to reports in the Daily Mail on July 19, Leeds United face competition from a number of clubs in the race to sign Liverpool winger Ryan Kent on loan.
The Hull Daily Mail says that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is willing to send the 20-year-old out on a temporary basis – as he did when he joined Barnsley on loan last season – but only when the wide-man has extended his current contract, which is due to run out in 2019.
The Daily Mail suggests that Hull City are Leeds’ main competitors to bring Kent to the Championship, although Birmingham City and Premier League outfit Brighton and Hove Albion are also credited with an interest.
Whites boss Thomas Christiansen is keen to strengthen his squad as he looks to better the club’s seventh-place finish last term, and he has already brought in seven new players – Mateusz Klich, Hadi Sacko, Felix Wiedwald, Vurnon Anita, Caleb Ekuban, Samuel Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski.
