KANE EXTENDS AT BLACKBURN

Under-21 defender Todd Kane has today (Tuesday) extended his loan deal with Blackburn Rovers until the end of the Championship season.

The defender has played five times since returning to Ewood Park for a second spell last month, and will now feature in their run-in as they seek to avoid relegation to League One.

On Saturday, the 19-year-old played the full game as Rovers beat Derby 2-0, their first league win since 9 February.

In total, Kane has played nine times for Blackburn, added to the five he played earlier in the campaign for League One Preston North End.
