KANE'S ROVERS RETURN

Under-21 defender Todd Kane has returned to Blackburn Rovers for a second loan spell that will last until April 16.

The 19-year-old, who played in our NextGen success against Barcelona and captained the Under-21's league defeat to Fulham a fortnight ago, played four times for Rovers in January, and now returns for a month-long stay.

'It is great to be back here, I'm really looking forward to it,' said the full-back. 'It was a great experience being here the first time. I really enjoyed it, I got on well with all the lads.'

Kane could now be involved in Saturday's 12.30pm kick-off against Rovers' local rivals Burnley at Ewood Park.
