Talented Liverpool winger makes loan move to Germany

Liverpool have allowed young winger Ryan Kent to join SC Freiburg on a season-long loan.

The midfielder, 20, signed a new five-year deal at Anfield earlier this summer and is expected to figure prominently in Jurgen Klopp’s long-term plans.

Having spent time on loan at Barnsley last season, Klopp wanted the player to continue his development in a higher league and the move to the Bundesliga will give Kent the perfect opportunity.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are established as the German’s first-choice wide options, and the £35million deadline-day signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain further limited Kent’s opportunities.

Kent had attracted interest from 32 different clubs this summer, largely from the Bundesliga and the Championship, with Hannover 96 pulling out of a deal earlier on Thursday.
