English youngster Ryan Kent has had his loan spell at Freiburg cut short after being recalled by Liverpool.

The 21-year-old linked up with Christian Streich’s side on deadline day ahead of the 2017/18 campaign but the winger found first-team chances hard to come by as his new team made a slow start.

Kent made his debut as a half-time substitute in a 4-0 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen in September before making his first start in a 5-0 loss at Bayern Munich a month later.

The England youth international’s sixth and final appearance came at home to Mainz on November 25. He again came on at half-time, when the score was 0-0, before Freiburg eventually won the game 2-1.

In total Kent played 245 minutes in the first half of the campaign before Liverpool decided to recall him. He spent last season on loan at English second tier side Barnsley, having debuted in Liverpool's first team in the FA Cup in January 2016.
