Liverpool are refusing to let Ryan Kent leave on loan, according to The Liverpool Echo. This is a major blow for Rangers, who expected Kent to return to Ibrox for another season-long loan spell.
However, Liverpool will not entertain another loan exit for their young winger. Instead, they want to sell Kent on a permanent basis. Rangers will be priced out of any move for the 22-year-old.
The Englishman was a major success at Ibrox last season, becoming a fan favourite. He scored in the Old Firm derby and produced some battling displays on the wing. It is no surprise that Steven Gerrard is trying to get him back in Glasgow.
Rangers fans want Kent back
Rangers fans flocked to Twitter to express their opinions about Liverpool’s stance on Kent. Fans were frustrated and annoyed as it looks like they might miss out on this signing due to Liverpool trying to get more money.
Here are some tweets from Gers supporters discussing the latest Kent reports.
Ruining the boy if they don’t allow him to go somewhere even a loan.

Quite like Kent. Great attitude and may well develop into a decent player, but for £7m you can get a far better player abroad. It is clear L’pool over value him. Also, agents will take note of how he’s been treated and advise their young clients accordingly.

Isn’t Harry Wilson older than Ryan Kent and been loaned out again which actually contradicts what Jurgen Klopp said ?
