Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce says the arrival of Todd Kane provides ‘a great opportunity’ for both player and club.The right back, who spent time with League One side Bristol City earlier this season, completed his loan move from Chelsea this morning and Pearce was delighted to get him on board.
Speaking to Forest Player, the manager said: “He’s left Bristol City top of the league and we’re fortunate enough to have him come and join us.
“We’ve had two full backs leave in Jack Hunt and Dan Harding so we’re pleased to have him here. He’s a good age – we think he’s learning and improving as a footballer.
“It’s a great opportunity for himself and for us.”
Kane spent the 2013-14 season on loan at fellow Championship side Blackburn, making 28 appearances for the Ewood Park outfit, scoring twice.
And Pearce believes that spell in Lancashire stands the 21-year-old in good stead as he commences a new chapter in his career.
Pearce said: “He’s got experience, that’s the important thing. He’s been in this league before so we know he can operate at this standard of football.
“We hope to bring one or two other fresh faces in but we’re waiting for phone calls back at this moment in time.”
