Kane Pleased With Positive Start - Hull City

Kane Pleased With Positive Start

Todd Kane is hoping to continue his positive start to life as a Hull City player after impressing in his first two appearances in black and amber.

It’s been just ten days since the versatile 24-year-old put pen-to-paper on a season-long loan deal to make the switch to the KCOM Stadium, during which he has made two pre-season appearances.

The Chelsea loanee played 75 minutes in the defeat to Rochdale last weekend, before getting his name on the scoresheet as Nigel Adkins’ side held Premier League Newcastle United to a 2-2 draw at the KCOM Stadium in midweek.

“It’s always nice to get minutes under your belt in pre-season, so to play 75 and 90 in my first two games has been a real positive,” he said.

“I’ve played both games on the right-hand side of midfield and I’ve really enjoyed being in that the role.

“I probably prefer it to be honest with you because I do like getting forward.

“As I say, it’s been a good start to my time here. Everyone has made me feel very welcome from the off and I just can’t wait for the season to start now.”

Reflecting on his first goal for the Club against the Magpies, Kane added: “It was great to get my name of the scoresheet, although it was slightly disappointing to hear Dan Batty announced as the scorer – my first goal and the pitch announcer was trying to take it off me!

“In all seriousness though, I do like to get forward and score goals, which I showed at Oxford last season, and hopefully I can continue to do so in a Hull City shirt this season.”
