Tottenham Hotspur fans will love the latest claim to emerge over Harry Kane’s future in north London…
The 28-year-old striker had a summer of transfer speculation as it was widely reported that Premier League champions Manchester City were keen to sign him after Euro 2020.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy held firm over his valuation of the England talisman and no deal came to fruition by the end of August, leaving Kane at the club for the immediate future.
And now, according to football.london’s Alasdair Gold, Kane is expected to see out the remainder of the season, at least, meaning he won’t be looking to move on in January.
“His people tell me he’s going to be here for this season at the very least. It’s not like there’s a, ‘I’m just going to rock on until January and get out of here’. It’s not that at all,” the Lilywhites reporter revealed to his YouTube channel this week.
“He is focused back on Tottenham. I think it’s fitness. I don’t think he was at his peak fitness level last season and I think he’s now got to get back there.”
Kane has struggled for form so far this campaign, only just opening his account on Wednesday night with a goal during their win over Wolves in the Carabao Cup.
It could well be a fitness thing but the Spurs striker will soon be up to speed and back at his best – after all, he contributed towards 54.4% of their 68 league goals last term and has found the net at least 24 times in every season since 2014/15.
Nuno Santo and his side currently remain in all competitions, meaning there is everything to play for, so to have Kane committed for the remainder of the season will be a massive boost.
It should help alleviate fears amongst the Lilywhites faithful that he could still be on his way out. We know from this update and Levy’s stubbornness that it’s going to take one hell of an offer to see Kane leave N17 anytime soon.
Valued at £108m by Transfermarkt, the north London outfit hold all the power over their leading striker, who is under contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until the summer of 2024.
There have even been suggestions that the 6 foot 2 forward could receive a lucrative extension to his current £200k-per-week deal, which would only further reinforce the likeliness that he’s here to stay for the foreseeable.
Spurs are a much stronger side with a fit and firing Kane, who was once dubbed a “monster” by teammate Heung-min Son, so all these encouraging signs should leave the fanbase absolutely delighted.
