Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Danny Kane.
The 20-year-old joins the club from Huddersfield Town and speaking to CorkCityFC.ie, the defender said: “I am delighted to get it over the line and sign for the best club in Ireland. I am really looking forward to getting started.”
“I know Ryan Delaney well from the Ireland Under 21s and he said it was a great set-up here, which I already knew. I watched the cup final last year online and I was impressed with the standard. I’ve been very impressed with the standard in training as well.”
“I want to try and break into the starting eleven. It is going to be difficult, there are a lot of good players here. When I break into that eleven, I want to win trophies; I came here to win things.”
City boss John Caulfield: “Danny is an Irish Under 21 international with a great pedigree. He can play centre back, full back or as a holding midfielder and he is a very good footballer. He hasn’t played much senior football, but he is over here with an opportunity to develop himself and compete for a first team position.”
“He is ambitious and wants to progress play at the highest level he can, so he will come in here and see can he break into the first team here. His attitude is fantastic, and he has blended in well here. He is another young player we have signed at a great age, with his whole career ahead of him, and the opportunity is there for him to develop and progress.”
“While a lot of our players are in their mid-twenties, we also have a number of players who are younger, like Danny, Josh O’Hanlon, Shane Griffin and Conor McCarthy coming through, who have their whole careers ahead of them. Those players bring skill, energy and potential to the squad, which can only add to the depth of the group.”
