Alasdair Gold has dropped an update on the future Tottenham Hotspur centre-forward Harry Kane.
In a recent Q&A on football.london, the Tottenham Hotspur correspondent revealed that, should Daniel Levy and ENIC continue to back Antonio Conte in the summer transfer market, the 28-year-old will be open to talks with the club concerning a contract extension – with the England captain’s current deal set to expire in June of 2024.
In response to a question concerning the Spurs striker’s future, Gold said: “If Spurs continue to show ambition and back Conte this summer then, as I reported last week, I understand Kane is open to talks over a new deal after he returns to pre-season.
“All he wants is to win major trophies with Tottenham and if he believes that can happen, which clearly he didn’t last summer, then he’s happy to help make it happen.”
Tottenham supporters will not need it explaining just how important a part of the Tottenham side Kane is, something that means Gold’s update revealing the academy graduate is open to extending his stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer is sure to be news the Spurs faithful will love.
Indeed, the £90m-rated forward has developed into one of the world’s leading number nines during his time with Tottenham, scoring a simply sensational 248 goals and registering 59 assists over his 386 appearances for the club – averaging a direct goal involvement every 99 minutes of football played for Spurs.
Furthermore, the £200k-per-week talent seems to have found a new lease of life under Conte’s management, with the 28-year-old bagging 20 goals and providing nine assists over his 36 appearances since the Italian’s arrival in north London last November.
As such, Gold’s claim that Kane looks happy to extend his stay at Spurs is undoubtedly fantastic for Conte and Levy alike, as, with the England international leading the Tottenham line and the 52-year-old in the Spurs dugout, the Lilywhites will almost certainly be a challenger in every competition they participate in next season.
