Kane Excited Ahead Of Season Restart

15 June 2020
Herbie Kane has described the decision to extend his loan spell at the Club as an ‘easy’ one to make.

The midfielder first arrived at the KCOM Stadium from parent club Liverpool in January but played just six times in black and amber before picking up what was thought to be a season-ending ankle injury in training.

However, after football was suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic in March, Kane is now back to full fitness and eager to make an impact in black and amber during the remainder of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

“I didn’t have to think too long about it whatsoever – it was an easy decision,” he said.

“I haven’t played as many games as I would’ve liked since coming here so to have the chance to extend my loan and stay part of the group for the remaining nine games made me very happy.

“To get the injury when I did was massively disappointing and frustrating. But, I’m fit again now and determined to get back on track. My ankle feels fine now and I’m just looking forward to getting going again when the season restarts.

“Personally, I think I’ve got more to give to the team than I’ve shown since coming here and I want to show the fans what I’m capable of.

“My sole aim going forward is to perform well and help the team pick up some positive results between now and the end of the season.”

Kane also revealed his excitement about the return of football, admitting he is relishing the prospect of the Tigers’ forthcoming busy schedule that will see Grant McCann’s side in action nine times in the space of just 33 days.

“We’re all in good spirits and everyone is looking forward to being back in action,” he added. “Yes, it’s a lot of games in a short space of time but there’s nothing better than playing games regularly.

“It will be the busiest run of fixtures I’ve ever been involved in but I’m confident everyone will be able to cope with and handle the busy schedule.

“You can’t beat the feeling of competitive action. Friendly games are good but they just don’t compare to the real thing. It’s exciting, knowing that we are so close to stepping back out on the pitch again. As a group, we’re in good spirits and everyone is determined to finish the season strongly.”
