Doncaster Rovers have secured a deal to keep Liverpool’s Herbie Kane at the Keepmoat until the end of the season, and it’s fair to say their fans are chuffed to pieces.
Kane has been in sublime form since joining in August, scoring six goals and turning in numerous commanding displays in the middle of the park. His excellent form has had fans wondering if they’d be able to keep him at the club, but the news his loan has been extended confirms their dreams: Herbie Kane is a Donny Rovers player until May 2019.
He told the club’s website how happy he was to remain with the League One side until the end of the season.
“I knew I wanted to stay at Doncaster Rovers. Since I arrived, I’ve enjoyed it, I enjoy playing here and I’m really looking forward to staying here for the rest of the season. Doncaster is the first loan club I’ve been at and I feel like I’ve settled in here so I’m pleased,” said Kane.
He’s not the only one who is delighted. The fans have been on social media classing the news as the best Christmas present they could hope for, with one calling him the best player in League One. With John Marquis ahead of him on the field, it could be an exciting second half of the season in South Yorkshire.
We’re going up then, nothing no one can do about it now. Best player in the league
