Kane: Agrees another month-long loan dea

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."
