Kane: Agrees another month-long loan deal

Blackburn have re-signed Chelsea defender Todd Kane on loan.

Kane has agreed another month-long deal after previously making four appearances for the npower Championship club in his first stint.

Rovers boss Michael Appleton moved to bring the 19-year-old back to Ewood Park after Bradley Orr and Adam Henley picked up injuries.

"It is great to be back here, I'm really looking forward to it," Kane told Rovers Player.

"It was a great experience being here the first time. I really enjoyed it, I got on well with all the lads.

"I watched the game against Millwall at the weekend and saw Bradley and Adam get injured so I did have a little thought that they might bring me back, and here I am."

The England Under-19 international is still awaiting his first-team debut at Stamford Bridge but enjoyed a month-long spell at Preston earlier on in the season, where he made five appearances.

Meanwhile Blackburn boss Michael Appleton has challenged David Dunn to earn himself a new contract over the remainder of the campaign.

The 33-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has made just 10 appearances this season.

But Appleton, who handed the former Birmingham man his first start since October for the FA Cup quarter-final replay against Millwall after he impressed in the original tie, has told the midfielder to prove he deserves a new deal over the remaining 10 fixtures.

"I think he has shown enough in the last game and a half to know that he has got enough ability to make sure he stays in the side," Appleton told the club's official website.

"We just need to keep him fit, that is the biggest thing because he could be very influential for us over the remaining 10 games.

"From his point of view he's got 10 games to prove that he deserves the opportunity to get a new contract.

"I think if he performs the way he has done in the last one-and-a-half games then he'll certainly be in with a very good shout."

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.

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.
