The teenage full-back, who enjoyed a productive spell with Rovers last term, has returned on a season-long agreement as he remains some way down the pecking order at parent club Chelsea.

He has started each of Blackburn's opening two fixtures in the Championship and formed part of the England U21 squad for their friendly date with Scotland on Tuesday.

Kane is thoroughly enjoying his football at present and concedes that staying at Blackburn long-term would appeal to him, despite only penning a new contract at Stamford Bridge in April.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I certainly wouldn't rule out joining Blackburn, it is a fantastic club.

"There were talks last year, but Chelsea wanted me to stay at Stamford Bridge and I signed a new contract that keeps me there until 2016.

"I really like Blackburn, I'm pleased to come back and I'm very grateful they wanted me back.

"I'd consider it if Blackburn came in for me, but right now I'm a Chelsea player and my main priority is to try and establish myself at Stamford Bridge before I think about anything else.

"Blackburn have given me a fantastic opportunity, though, and who knows what might happen in the future.

"I'm very settled and Gary Bowyer has created a great spirit, there's a real feeling of optimism about the place."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
