Crown Football Round-Up (06/09/2019)
Congratulations to Ryan Kent who signed a permanent four-year deal with Rangers after spending the 2018/19 season on loan at Ibrox. His excellent form for the Scottish Premiership side, which included 40 appearances and six goals, earned him the accolade of PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year. The 22-year-old will join up with Steven Gerrard’s squad when the team return from the international break. Speaking exclusively to RangersTV he smiled: “I am delighted to be back here, it has been a quite a long summer, a lot of things could have potentially happened but I am delighted to be here. Good luck Ryan!
Juventus striker Stephy Mavididi has joined Ligue 1 side FCO Dijon on loan for the 2019/20 season. The 21-year-old made his first-team debut in April against SPAL and was named on the bench for a further three games as the Bianconeri secured another Serie A title. Good luck for the rest of the season Stephy!
