According to, Hibs are reportedly after Liverpool youngster Herbie Kane.

He’s a 20-year-old midfielder who recently spent the season out on loan at Doncaster Rovers in League One. The Reds are reportedly set to send him back out on loan.

The report also claims that Brentford and Millwall are also in for him. The Championship side’s would obviously be able to offer much more from a financial point of view.

What could Hibs bring to the table to persuade Kane and Liverpool that the SPFL should be his next temporary home?

Previous SPFL success could tempt Kane

Championship football may sound more appealing but the SPFL may actually be a better option for Kane. You only have to look to some Reds who enjoyed periods out on loan in Scotland last season.

Ryan Kent, Adam Bogdan and Liam Millar all enjoyed decent spells at Rangers, Hibs and Kilmarnock respectively. The only one that flopped really was Ovie Ejaria.

These moves will benefit these players, whether that’s with their Liverpool careers or elsewhere. Kane may see their success and be tempted to go and get a piece of it himself.

Would he be a decent pickup for Hibs? Based on his 2018/19 season, Kane certainly would be. The Reds midfielder notched four goals and five assists from midfield in the league last season.

Considering he’d sometimes be deployed as a CDM on the odd occasion where Doncaster played a 4-3-2-1, that’s pretty decent. He found real success in the FA Cup though, scoring three goals and notching two assists in six games.

In total he played 49 times, scoring seven and assisting on 10 occasions. Alongside Stevie Mallan and Scott Allan, Hibs could have a real creative force in the middle of the park if Kane was brought in.

It’s not hard to see why there is interest in the Liverpool youngster. He’s a promising talent who may have a future at Anfield. Kane could be a decent loan acquisition for the Easter Road side.
