Herbie Kane is set to miss the remainder of the season due to a hamstring injury.
Having earlier opened the scoring for Hull City, the 21-year-old midfielder was forced off during his loan club's 2-1 win over Middlesbrough last Thursday.
With just five league games left to play in the Championship in 2019-20, Hull City boss Grant McCann said: "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.
"He picked up the injury in training when no-one was near him before lockdown and now he's pulled a hamstring.
"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.”
