The Reds would reportedly prefer to send the youngster out on loan again, so a move to the Whites in the Championship could be a realistic option following the success of Harry Wilson at Derby County.

The Championship is arguably a more competitive league than the Scottish Premiership, so if Kent can continue his consistent displays in England’s second tier next year, it would more than likely increase his current £12m valuation.

Newly promoted Aston Villa are also keen on the youngster, however, Dean Smith’s side would more than likely want to sign the player on a permanent basis due to the Premier League restricting sides to just two loans between clubs in the same division.
