TALENTED midfielder Ryan Kent has bid the Sky Blues an emotional farewell after he was recalled back to parent club Liverpool by manager Jugen Klopp.

The 19-year-old impressed throughout his three month loan at the Ricoh Arena after making 17 appearances under Tony Mowbray.

His highlight came back at the beginning of November when he scored a wonderful curling shot in a crucial 4-3 victory over Barnsley at the Ricoh Arena.

Kent received a standing ovation from his team mates and staff in the dressing room following his final game against Crewe on Saturday, and he was also given a signed shirt.

After Saturday’s match he tweeted: “Thanks To Everyone Associated With @Coventry_City – Great Football Club, Wish You All The Best For Remainder Of The Season #Promotion #PUSB.”

Team mates also paid tribute to his talent, with Jacob Murphy tweeting: “Gutted to see @ryankent_10 leave huge talent who’ll go onto massive things! See you on the other side!”

And fellow teenager James Maddison added: “Also all the best to the bro kenty! Been a pleasure lad! Keep an eye out for this one, boys a player.”

Kent looks set to make his full Liverpool debut against Exeter in the FA Cup this Friday with Klopp struggling to cope with injuries ahead of a busy league and cup fixture schedule.
