Nottingham Forest loanee Todd Kane ‘can’t wait’ to start work under the leadership of Reds manager Stuart Pearce.
The 21-year-old, who will spend the rest of the season at The City Ground on loan from Chelsea
, was part of England’s youth set-up at the same time Pearce was manager of the Three Lions’ Under 21s.
And the right back is looking forward to finally getting his chance to work with Pearce.
Kane told Forest Player: “Coming here there’s another great manager to work under, especially as he played in my position of full back - that makes it even better for myself.
“When he was Under 21s coach I was in the Under 19s. Unfortunately he wasn’t there when I stepped up but I’m here now working with him and I can’t wait.”
Kane enjoyed a loan spell at League One side Bristol City earlier this season, playing right wing back in a 3-5-2 formation.
And, at a time when his new club appear comfortable playing with either three or four at the back, Kane would have no qualms with playing the same role he did at Ashton Gate.
He said: “I like wing back more. I feel it suits me.
“I get up and down, I get crosses in for the strikers and midfielders to get goals. Whether I’m having a good game or a bad game I’ll always work hard for the team and fans – that’s just me as a person.
“Hopefully I’ll get as many assists as I can, a couple of goals and a number of wins for the team.”
