Kane was initially loaned to NEC Nijmegen during 2015/16 campaign, but his loan spell was shortened due to ligament injury suffered.
Having recovered from the injury, Kane will continue his career development with Ernest Faber, who earlier managed him at NEC.
According to the Sun, the young star reveals he is looking forward to work under Faber again, as the Tactician believes in his abilities.
“I feel that the manager has a massive impact on my career and when he asked me to come I felt that I couldn’t turn it down, it was another great opportunity to work with him. As quoted by the Sun
“He called me last season, when i was back at home, I got the call and obviously I answered it and I was very happy and he said would I like to play under him again at FC Gronigen, and I said ‘of course’.
“He [the manager] said ‘it’s a very good club’, it’s very different to NEC, I can see already it’s a bigger club but you know I will take it as another club that I’m happy to join.”
Although yet to play for the Blues senior team, Kane however helped Chelsea youth team win the FA Youth cup and the Under-21 league title while he was at Chelsea.
