Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is looking forward to making his first team debut in Friday's FA Cup tie at Exeter City.


Kent was recalled from a loan spell at Coventry City earlier this week and looks set to be in Jurgen Klopp's squad to face the Grecians, after Philippe Coutinho picked up a hamstring injury against Stoke on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old was a regular at the Ricoh Arena, making 17 appearances in League One and contributing a goal and an assist.


"It's disappointing to be leaving because I've enjoyed it so much at Coventry, but I'm also looking forward to the next step in my career," Kent, said as quoted by the Western Morning News.


"There are a number of injuries and a lot of games, so that's why I've been recalled.


"Hopefully I can make my debut against Exeter in the FA Cup, but I'll have to see what happens."

Kent has been on Liverpool's books since the age of seven, but is yet to make an appearance for the first team, despite being a regular in Michael Beale's Under-21 side last season.


The Oldham-born youngster, who's been capped five times by England's Under-20s, leaves the Sky Blues as ex-Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole prepares to complete a permanent move from Aston Villa.
