Hull City’s loanee midfielder Herbie Kane will not play again this season because of a hamstring injury.
The 21-year-old had to go off after scoring in last Thursday’s 2-1 Championship win over Middlesbrough.
He scored twice in nine games after joining the Tigers in January, but will now return to parent club Liverpool.
“Looking at the scan, it’s not a nice one for him. We’re gutted for Herbie because he’s had no luck since coming here,” said boss Grant McCann.
“He picked up the injury in training when no-one was near him before lockdown and now he’s pulled a hamstring.”
Sunday’s 4-2 defeat at promotion-chasing West Brom kept Hull 21st in the table, just one point above the relegation places, and they next face a trip to managerless Bristol City on Wednesday.
On Kane’s future, McCann added: “We’d love to have him back with us next season. He’s everything that we need and everything that I like in a player – with his energy and bravery.

“He can score goals and he’s calm on the ball as well. We’d love to keep him here next year – and possibly longer if we could.”
