Liverpool are set to offer Ryan Kent new terms and tie him down on a long-term basis.
The decision comes after interest from both Leeds United and Bournemouth. Garry Monk and Eddie Howe and keen on the young winger.
20-year-old Kent has spent this season on loan with Championship side Barnsley and has delivered some impressive performances as the team have flirted with the play-offs.
He is under contract for two more seasons and is open to listening to new contracts on offer. If he cannot come to an agreement then Leeds and Bournemouth will try to make him one of their first captures of the summer.
Ryan at the Reds
Kent made his senior Reds debut at Exeter City in an FA Cup tie last January and has said that seeing the progress of fellow Academy prospects Alexander-Arnold, Woodburn and Ejaria, has given him hope that he can earn Klopp’s trust in the long-term.
He told LFCTV that seeing the manager give out so many debuts and trusting young players in big games in “pivotal” and that he feels inspired.
Not many clubs are giving young players these opportunities, so that’s more inspiration for me to go back to Liverpool in the summer
Kent is enjoying his time at Barnsley and has showcased his skills in front of big crowds.
The youngster has also made six appearances for England’s U20 squad, scoring one goal. He was called up in August 2015.
