Harry Kane signs new long-term deal at Spurs

Tottenham have put their faith in the young academy graduate, ensuring Kane will be the first homegrown striker in years to settle in the first team.

21-year-old Spurs forward Harry Kane has signed an improved contract at White Hart Lane that will tie him to the club until 2019.

The youngster has impressed in North London since breaking through the youth teams, having been on Tottenham's books since the age of 15.

Kane has played a big part in the club's preseason, on the back of netting 3 goals in 7 games in the final months of last season.

He made his first team debut in 2011 in the home Europa League match with Hearts, having been on the bench in domestic cup games a couple of years before.

The striker was prolific for Spurs at youth and reserve level, and carried this form into various loan spells at the likes of Leyton Orient and Millwall earlier in his career. He was even loaned out to former Spurs coach Chris Hughton in 2012, then in the Premier League with Norwich, only for an injury to see Kane recalled.

As the club's third choice striker, the England Under-21 man is likely to be heavily involved in both the Europa League campaign and domestic cup competitions, and with Mauricio Pochettino in charge, someone famed for putting faith in youngsters that possess quality, Kane could well significantly add to his Premier League figures.
