It seems that Harry Kane has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane almost since he made his debut for the club.
Such has been his rise to top level consistency that the rumours were inevitable. Scoring goals is the most important element in football and English players who can do this tend to have a particularly high price around their neck.
But Harry Kane is a Tottenham boy and he has once more publicly sounded his allegiance to the club. He is quoted by Sky Sports as saying:
“I would be surprised if any of my team-mates were to leave now,” the England international told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Something’s going on here, we’re just missing that last step – to win trophies. It would be stupid to leave now.
“We have one of the best managers in the world, perhaps the best. Soon there will be a new stadium. The future is promising.”
The 23-year-old England international has played 17 times for his country since his debut in 2015 and scored a creditable five goals. It’s impossible not to imagine him being a mainstay of the national side for the next seven or eight years.
And he’s been a sensation at club level for Tottenham with 79 goals in just 146 games for the club over the last six seasons since making his debut for Spurs way back in 2011.
Tottenham are fortunate that in an industry where almost every player seems to have his price, Kane appears completely settled and happy to keep plying his trade or Spurs as long as they want him. Perhaps a more vulnerable target could prove to be Dele Alli but Tottenham will be hellbent on keeping this ostensibly telepathic duo together in the long-term.
Let’s take a look at some of Kane’s better moments in an already glittering career for Spurs.
