Leeds United striker Mallik Wilks and Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane were on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season.

Doncaster Rovers manager Grant McCann has suggested to Leeds Live that a lot of clubs are interested in Leeds United striker Mallik Wilks and Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane.

Wilks, who can also operate as a winger, spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Doncaster in League One from Championship club Leeds.

Midfielder Kane, 20, was on loan at Donny from the Reds during the 2018-19 campaign.

Doncaster manager McCann has said that 20-year-old Wilks and Kane are being chased by a number of clubs and progressed well during their loan spell.

McCann told Leeds Live about Wilks and Kane: “These two boys came in and no one knew them, everyone was wondering what to expect.

“They went from strength to strength and now everyone is after them, it gives you a sense of pride in the job.”


Kane is a very promising and talented young midfielder, but it is going to be hard for the 20-year-old to break into the Liverpool first team next season.

Wilks, though, could get a chance, as Leeds could do with a young and promising striker like the 20-year-old.

According to Leeds Live, Wilks scored 16 goals and provided nine assists infall competitions for Doncaster this season.
