No Rovers return for Kane as Bowyer turns attentions elsewhere

Todd Kane

Todd Kane

First published in Sport

TODD Kane will not be returning to Blackburn Rovers for a third successive season.

Kane has spent the last 18 months on loan at Rovers from Premier League outfit Chelsea.

However despite being in need of a right back Gary Bowyer is unlikely to explore the possibility of signing the 20-year-old on loan again.

Instead Rovers boss Bowyer will turn his attentions elsewhere with Cardiff City’s John Brayford and Sunderland’s Phil Bardsley having already being linked with moves to Ewood Park.

Kane has made 42 appearances and scored two goals across his two campaigns for Rovers.

He first arrived at the club in January 2013 and established himself as its first-choice right back.

The former England U19s international started the first 19 games of this season but he lost his place to Adam Henley after he missed the 0-0 draw at QPR on December 7 through suspension.

Henley’s season was ended early by ankle ligament damage.

But instead of recalling Kane, whose form had dipped, Bowyer chose to play Jason Lowe and then the Michael Keane out of position at right back.

On-loan Manchester United centre back Keane impressed in the role and Rovers’ players and management would relish the chance of him returning to the club next season.

Left back Tommy Spurr said: “You could tell Mike was a player straight away and he fitted in well.

“When he went to right back I was actually taking the Mick out of him, saying he would have to do a lot more running.

“But he managed to do it, he did a really good job, and we’d all be delighted to have him back next year.”

Keane would jump at the chance to re-sign for Rovers if United decide to send him back out on loan to the Championship.

But Bowyer believes the 21-year-old, who has one year remaining on his Old Trafford contract, is good enough to play in the Premier League and fears that is where he will be operating next season.

Bowyer is therefore monitoring other right backs.

But one name which is unlikely to feature on his shortlist is that of Bardsley.

The Scotland international is set to be a free agent in the summer as he is yet to agree a new deal with Sunderland.

But his salary will be out of Rovers’ price range.

Bowyer signed two players from Cardiff in January in Rudy Gestede and Craig Conway.

But it remains uncertain whether the relegated Bluebirds would sell Brayford, should anything become of Rovers’ reported interest, to one of their Championship rivals.

Brayford failed to make a Premier League appearance for Cardiff after signing from Derby County for £1.5m in July last year and he spent the final four months of the season on loan in League One with Sheffield United.

And the cost cutting begins... losing a premier league player is a poor start and you can expect more of the same once your high earners have been moved on.

Here we go again... anyone who chooses to leave the sinking ship is branded not good enough by the no-dads, we saw it with Dann when he opted for a future in football ahead of a slow and miserable death with Blackburn Rovers. You all said good riddance, and that he wasn't up to the job, and look what happened then.... your defence leaked goals from that point on at an alarming rate right up to the end of the season, and the goals conceded ensured that you'd never climb any higher than 8th.

Good luck to Kane, a talented young player who will go far, now that he's escaped the flea-pit.

Both Kane and Henley are decent young players who were left exposed by a succession of injuries to players around them that seemed to last all season, experienced players would have struggled to cope with the constant changes, so it's no surprise that they both lost form in reality.

Our right hand side has been an absolute nightmare for injuries all season and it was easy to see the confidence draining out of these two at times.

Hopefully both will learn from the experience and be better players for it in the future, Henley has the better chance presuming he stays at Rovers but with Kane going back to Chelsea all I can see for him are yet more loan opportunities.

One thing about Henley even though he had some terrible games near the end I liked the way he didn't hide and kept giving 100% even though he was left extremely exposed on many occasions, because of this he was a stand out target for opposition teams and needed help that seldom came. Maybe he will be OK next season because he did play well at times. No doubt GB will sort it one way or the other.

Not really bothered about this one to be honest. on another defensive issue, my preffered CB partnership would be Keane and Killgallon. For me Hanley has been a liability at times. He has given away far too many penalties and his red cards are down to his poor reading of the game.I am by no means saying get rid, as he is obviously still young and I do think he has the making of a top centre half. But last season I counted so many occasions whereby his inability to read the game cost us goals/points. In general good centre backs don't go to ground too often - Hanley does this EVERY SINGLE GAME. Why? because he has to recover his own poor positioning and mental lapses.

For me it's Lowe Keane Killgallon Spurr as a back 4

Hi, I'm a Burnley fan but with a level head, I think Kane leaving is a good thing as he wasn't great defensively, he was average going forward and will never make a chelsea first teamer, there are better players around for less money.
I am under no illusion that Burnley are punching way above their weight and hope we can manage to stay up through pot luck, which is how we got promoted with a bunch of free transfers and eddie howe signings.
It'll be interesting to see if Dyche will be any good with money, Mark Hughes was good on a restricted budget but blew it with a bottomless pit.
I think Dyche will jump as soon as an offer comes in like Coyle did.

"the only satisfaction l can glean from being a Rovers supporter at the minute is knowing Burnley will collapse like the proverbial pack of cards.. "

If that's the only satisfaction you can get you need to take a good look at your life my friend, I feel you may be missing out on certain things that the rest of us take for granted.

Now about your comment, if this is as you say your only means of satisfaction, then what happens when we stay up? How will you deal with that? Will you simply shift your dream on a season and act like we fluked it again?

Time for you to realise your rightful place my friend, you are back where you started now that all the money is gone. You are a joke of a club and you are about to be taken apart by the Financial Fair Play rules.

There is more chance of Gary Bowyer being awarded manager of the season than Blackburn Rovers achieving promotion next season. Try to adjust your outlook, you are going nowhere and deep down you know this.

You were 23 points off automatic promotion, and with further cost cutting to come, what makes you think you can possibly compete with the likes of Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich who will all be aiming to bounce straight back up and have the benefit of Premier League squads and £60million in parachute payments? What makes you think you are going to compete with the teams who made the play-off's this time and don't go up, QPR, Derby or Wigan, and then there are the other teams who have invested massively and are aiming for Premier League football in the near future, Nottingham Forest, Reading, Brighton. There's also the likes of Watford, Bolton and Leeds who will all get their acts together next season after poor runs, and then there's Wolves who have the momentum in coming up to also challenge for a play-off spot.

I think you are way off in your assessment and you will fall well short of being a play-off challenger, a relegation battle is more likely once the transfer ban and cost cutting measures get into full swing. Sad but true.

Simple - Burnley did it with £400k and we already have a far superior squad than yours this time last year. You're right about Wolves momentum though - be mindful of yours on the way back down.

Team GB need to work hard on his attitude

He should hsve been sent off sgainst Wigsn and so should there player for how he retaliated however main point is that an earlier altercation should have been forgotten about but Hanley just could not help himself.

Fine line I know however he has let the club down several times thid year which we can ill afford next season.

We did indeed do it with £400k, but the other ingredient which you failed to mention is that we have Sean Dyche too, and Gary Bowyer is certainly no Sean Dyche as I'm sure you'll agree.

Not surprised about this. Kane's got plenty of pace but he's still got a lot to learn about defending. Whilst it's good to have the option of a wing-back in the squad, we've already got one in Henley, who is quicker going forward and a bit more reliable at the back. Bardsley would be a decent addition but as the article rightly says, his wages would be too much for us. I doubt there will be a shortage of offers from Premier League clubs anyway.

Brayford on the other hand would be, in my opinion, a decent signing. He was very good at Derby and I was surprised he didn't get a chance at Cardiff after they spent £1.5M on him in the summer. I don't think Cardiff would have a problem selling him to one of their league rivals as he's clearly not part of Solskjær's plans. The obvious stumbling block would be the fee. He's still got 3 years left to run on his contract and Cardiff would surely want to recoup as much of the money they spent on him as possible. Perhaps Bowyer should try to get him in on an initial 6 month loan with the option to extend it for the rest of the season. That would suit all parties as Cardiff would have him off the wage bill, Brayford would virtually be guaranteed first team football every week and Bowyer will get to run the rule over him before making any long-term commitment.

footballers move on all the time THAT'S HOW FOOTBALL WORKS
you come on here getting all giddy every time someone comes in or moves out of Blackburn rovers but if I was you I would keep an eye on your own club over the next couple of weeks
A 'premier league player' is one that's played in the prem is it not? Kane doesn't fit this description. Very odd how some people read certain articles and come to a completely different conclusion to the rest of us!
Kane is a Chelsea player, Chelsea play in the English Premier League, just like Burnley do. Do try to keep up Jim.

Not surprised about this. Kane's got plenty of pace but he's still got a lot to learn about defending. Whilst it's good to have the option of a wing-back in the squad, we've already got one in Henley, who is quicker going forward and a bit more reliable at the back. Bardsley would be a decent addition but as the article rightly says, his wages would be too much for us. I doubt there will be a shortage of offers from Premier League clubs anyway.

Brayford on the other hand would be, in my opinion, a decent signing. He was very good at Derby and I was surprised he didn't get a chance at Cardiff after they spent £1.5M on him in the summer. I don't think Cardiff would have a problem selling him to one of their league rivals as he's clearly not part of Solskjær's plans. The obvious stumbling block would be the fee. He's still got 3 years left to run on his contract and Cardiff would surely want to recoup as much of the money they spent on him as possible. Perhaps Bowyer should try to get him in on an initial 6 month loan with the option to extend it for the rest of the season. That would suit all parties as Cardiff would have him off the wage bill, Brayford would virtually be guaranteed first team football every week and Bowyer will get to run the rule over him before making any long-term commitment.
Tony Hibbert's out of contract next month if he's fit and we're looking for experience at right back.

What makes you think you are going to compete with the teams who made the play-off's this time and don't go up, QPR, Derby or Wigan, and then there are the other teams who have invested massively and are aiming for Premier League football in the near future, Nottingham Forest, Reading, Brighton. There's also the likes of Watford, Bolton and Leeds who will all get their acts together next season after poor runs, and then there's Wolves who have the momentum in coming up to also challenge for a play-off spot.

Simple - Burnley did it with £400k and we already have a far superior squad than yours this time last year. You're right about Wolves momentum though - be mindful of yours on the way back down.
''Burnley did it with £400k...''

Of course they did. Because a) having turned down an offer of £750k a week earlier, Brighton then caved in and sold Barnes for £350k less than Burnley's initial offer, and b) every other member of the team was a freebie.

Dyche deserves a lot of credit for what he's achieved this season (he's my pick for PFA Manager of the Year), but let's not pretend it was all 'odd socks and old boots'.

Martinez said back in February that the club want to offer him a new contract in the summer. He's probably going to be a one-club player. I think he's too old and too slow for Bowyer anyway.

Kane has turned into a major disappointment for me and I certainly wouldn't bring him back. We need a PROVEN right back. Keane is a centre back and should be signed to play there first and foremost
Keane would make a quality centre back. Him & Hanley would be awesome, not so sure about him at right back though, looked a bit exposed at times. Plus with only a year left on his contract I'd be trying to secure his services permanently.
