Biographical Text

Kane Wilson joined Exeter City on loan from West Bromwich Albion in August 2017 at the same time as fellow WBA loanee Kyle Edwards. After a further loan spell with the Grecians the following season, Kane eventually left the Baggies to join Forest Green Rovers.  

Kane, who had represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, made his competitive debut for West Brom in August 2016 when he featured against Northampton Town in the League Cup. 

He first played for City in an EFL Trophy tie against Plymouth Argyle in October 2017 and scored his first goal against Barnet in December 2017. Kane made 22 appearances in all competitions for City but, unlike Kyle Edwards, did not feature in the play-offs. Kane was then loaned to Walsall during the first half of 2018/19 before returning to Exeter City on another loan in January 2019. Back at St James Park, Kane played in the majority of City’s fixtures during the remainder of the season making 17 league appearances.   

Kane then spent time on loan at Tranmere before leaving The Hawthorns and agreeing a deal with Forest Green Rovers in July 2020 from where, after playing in a championship-winning team and being named League Two Player of the Year 2021/22, he was to move to Bristol City in June 2022.

Once at Ashton Gate Kane made a series of substitute appearances before picking up a serious injury which put him out for several months. After making just five substitute appearances in the league, he moved on to Derby County in July 2023 where he featured in 41 league games during his first term as the Rams won promotion to the Championship.
