A major update has emerged on the future of Harry Kane at Tottenham Hotspur and it is likely to come as a huge boost to Nuno Santo and the club…
Eurosport’s Dean Jones has provided a lengthy update on the situation in a recent column, in which he claims that the 28-year-old striker could be open to signing a new contract in north London, whilst also suggesting that Manchester City have moved on from their interest.
It’s thought that lines of communication between chairman Daniel Levy and Kane’s representatives will remain open in the coming weeks and months in case a new deal can be agreed on, with his current £200k-per-week contract set to expire in 2024.
There is also a chance that Spurs insert a release clause into any extension in a bid to find some common ground over an acceptable valuation.
He also claims that the defending Premier League champions are unlikely to revisit the England international in the next few transfer window, though they are continuing to look at ways of improving the team.
Throughout the summer, it seemed as though City were the only club genuinely keen to sign Kane, so if they are moving on from him, then it has to be a massive, massive boost for Nuno and the club.
It means their position over keeping hold of him for the long-term is substantially bolstered as his dreams of joining a club that can guarantee silverware are pretty much dead and buried, for now.
Whether Levy hands out a new deal very much remains to be seen but the fact that the two parties are willing to keep an open dialogue is further encouragement and even the inclusion of release clause shouldn’t have people worried because it means Spurs will receive exactly what they deserve for a player of that calibre.
Indeed, the English talisman is a major part of this side, having scored or assisted 54.4% of all their 68 league goals last season. Furthermore, despite their lack of trophies and outright success, Kane has still been a prolific marksman, hitting at least 24 goals in every season since 2014/15.
Once described as a “monster” by his dynamic strike-partner Heung-min Son, this fresh development from Hotspur Way should leave many around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium not only relieved but also rather excited about the season ahead.
Spurs have lost just once in the Premier League so far this term and they are amongst the favourites to clinch the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League, so with a fit, firing and committed Kane, the north Londoners could well have a serious shot at their first trophy since 2008 – something that would appease the leading striker tenfold.
This is one big step in the right direction for all concerned.
