Kane, 21, will join up with the Tigers and manager Grant McCann who are currently embarking on a promotion push sitting ninth in the table.

The former Doncaster Rovers star has made two appearances for the European champions this season. Kane started and played the full 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Aston Villa in December.

He also came off the bench to make his senior Liverpool debut in the 2-0 victory against MK Dons back in September. Kane benefited greatly following a successful loan spell with Doncaster during the 2018/19 season.

The Reds u23’s star made 46 appearances for Rovers scoring seven goals and registering 10 assists. He was named in the League One Team of the Season after helping inspire McCann’s side to a play-off finish – falling just short following the semi-final defeat on penalties to Charlton Athletic in May.

McCann left Rovers to join up with Hull in June and will hope his reunion with Kane can help inspire a push to the Premier League.

Another Liverpool player who benefited greatly during a loan spell with the Tigers was none other than Harry Wilson.

The former Debry County forward flourished at the KCOM Stadium during a three-month spell in 2018.

Wilson, 22, played 14 times for the Championship outfit scoring seven goals and boasting four assists. The current AFC Bournemouth loanee joined the Yorkshire side with the club rooted in the relegation zone but the winger’s immediate impact helped the club finish six points off the drop.

The spectacular form of Wilson at Hull forced Frank Lampard to take a chance on the youngster at Derby and the Liverpool academy graduate repaid the Chelsea legend’s faith with 18 goals and six assists during a campaign that saw them just miss out on the Premier League after losing the play-off final against Aston Villa in May.

Wilson has since earned a move to the Premier League with Eddie Howe and Bournemouth. The Wales international is currently the Cherries top-scorer with six goals.

Hull proved to be the springboard to greater things for Wilson who is currently thriving in the top-flight. Kane has demonstrated his unwavering talent despite limited appearances for Liverpool and now reunited with a manager who knows his talents all-too-well could we be about to see history repeat itself for another Reds youngster at the KCOM Stadium?
