18 year-old defender in line to face Ukraine

- Huddersfield Town's Danny Kane called up by Ireland U19s
- Defender in line for two friendlies vs Ukraine
- 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 a pair of upcoming friendlies against Ukraine.

The centre back, who joined Town’s Academy from Irish club Cherry Orchard in February 2013, is in the squad for the friendlies that will take place in Limerick, Ireland on 10 and 12 October 2015. 

These friendlies come ahead of the start of Ireland's 2016 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualifying campaign, which begins in November. The Irish are in Group A alongside Scotland, Slovenia and Latvia.

Danny recently made his debut at Under-19 level for his country, starting an international friendly against Italy on 7 September.

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 two starts for Frankie Bunn’s Town Under-21 side this season – the latest coming on Monday in the 1-0 win over Ipswich – turned professional in the summer after graduating from the Club’s Academy.

Danny is the latest Town play to receive international summons during the forthcoming break, following on from Jason Davidson's call to the Australia squad, Under-16 defender Jordan Williams' England call and summons for Joe Wright and Jake Charles to the Wales Under-21 squad.

Town's next home game against MK Dons is only £10 entry at the gate for adults!
