Liverpool youngster Herbie Kane has said goodbye to Doncaster Rovers fans after his successful loan spell expired.
The 20-year-old plays in central midfield and has enjoyed a strong season in League One. Kane played a major role as Doncaster ended sixth in League One and fell narrowly short in the play-off semi-finals.
Kane now heads back to Liverpool with 49 senior games under his belt. The England U19 midfielder scored seven goals and provided 10 assists in a fruitful stint.
In a message on Twitter, Kane said: “I have enjoyed being part of this club, part of a great dressing room and made some friendships, and living in the area has helped me to grow not only as a player but a person.
“Doncaster Rovers can hopefully use this season to push on and go one better next year and be the ones celebrating at the final whistle.
“I would especially like to say a big big thanks to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity and the faith he has shown in me throughout the season.”
Liverpool fans can get very excited about Kane’s future. He could be heading to the top if he fulfils his potential. Here are some tweets from Doncaster fans after he said farewell.
