Jurgen Klopp manager

Herbie Kane probably isn't ready to play Premier League football for Liverpool but a spell in the Championship with Hull should aid his development.

Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane could leave Anfield on loan again this summer with Hull City keen to take him to the KCom Stadium, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

The 20-year-old midfielder will return to Merseyside in the near future once his exceptional loan spell at Doncaster Rovers comes to an end.


Kane, who idolises legendary Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, has scored seven goals for Donny, helping them reach the League One play-off semi finals. He was even named in the third tier’s Team of the Season.

And the Hull Daily Mail reports that, if Jurgen Klopp is willing to let Kane leave on loan again this summer, Hull would be keen to give him the chance to prove himself in the Championship.

Nigel Adkins’ side have made great use of the loan market in recent seasons and may be encouraged by the remarkable impact Harry Wilson made on Humberside during a spell from Liverpool towards the end of the 2017/18 season. The Welsh international, who is now shining at Derby, scored seven times in 13 games for the Tigers.

Former Bristol City youngster Kane signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool in December and Doncaster boss Grant McCann has tipped him for the very top.

“The boy’s special. I’ve said that before and I’ll say it again," McCann told the Free Press.

“He’s a special talent and he’s going to have some career."
