Kane made the second of his Liverpool appearances on Tuesday night, playing the full 90 minutes of the League Cup quarter-final 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa while the senior stars were in Qatar at the Club World Cup.

He has already spent a full campaign in League One after spending last season at Doncaster Rovers, where he scored seven goals and provided 10 assists from midfield in 49 appearances in all competitions.
