Tottenham star wants lethal partnership with flop striker

Harry Kane is hopeful that he and Roberto Soldado can form a deadly partnership and fire Tottenham up the Premier League.

The strike duo both started against Everton on Sunday, with the latter scoring the all-important winning goal in the first-half after some neat work from his partner in the build-up.

While Kane has been a success since moving into the first-team, Soldado’s Spurs career has been quite the opposite, with the Spaniard having struggled since his £26m switch from Valencia last year under Andre Villas-Boas.

His effort against the Toffees was his first in the Premier League since March, during which time he’s been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane.

And Kane is hopeful that the weekend showing could be the start to a fruitful on-field relationship:

“I drop a bit deeper and more into the hole, but he’s obviously a top class player and I enjoy playing with him,” he’s quoted by talkSPORT.

“We have had some good games in the Europa League and Capital One Cup.

“We played the last couple in the Premier League and we’ve got some good results, so hopefully we can form a good partnership.”
