Kane crosses the North Sea

Right-back Todd Kane will return to Dutch football on loan with Groningen for the forthcoming campaign.

The 23-year-old Chelsea Academy product had a successful season at NEC Nijmegen in 2015/16 curtailed by a knee injury but now recovered, he is returning to the Netherlands for the coming season to play on loan at Groningen.

At Chelsea, Kane has won the FA Youth Cup and the national Under-21 league title.

Groningen finished eighth in the Dutch Eredivisie last season.
