Blackburn Rovers defender Tony Kane says his development accelerated as he spent last season on-loan at Cercle Brugge.

"I really enjoyed my time in Belgium last season," he said. "The four or five months I was out there have really improved me a lot.

"Playing against top teams like Anderlecht and Standard Liege in front of big crowds, was a great learning experience.

"It's now up to me to see what level I can play at and how far I can progress back here in England."
