- Huddersfield Town's Danny Kane called up by Ireland U19s
- Defender in line for three European Championship qualifiers
- Kane the latest international call-up for Town

Huddersfield Town defender Danny Kane has been named in the Republic of Ireland Under-19 squad for three upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

The centre back, who joined Town’s Academy from Irish club Cherry Orchard in February 2013, is in the squad for the games that will take place in Ireland between 13 and 18 November.  

The Irish are in Group A of the first phase of qualifying and will play games against Slovenia on 13 November, Latvia on 15 November and Scotland on 18 November.

Danny already has three caps for his country at Under-19 level.

This international summons is the latest in a line of recognition by Ireland for Danny, who was named Ireland’s Under-17 Player of the Year in March 2015.

Kane, who has made three starts and two substitute appearances for Frankie Bunn’s Town Under-21 side this season, turned professional in the summer after graduating from the Club’s Academy.
