Gary Neville names Harry Kane as Premier League's most improved player

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has earned the praise of Gary Neville.

Gary Neville believes that Harry Kane has shown greater improvement this season than any other player in the Premier League.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker already has 14 goals to his name for the campaign and his performances have seen him go from up-and-coming youngster to the main striker at White Hart Lane in no time.

Kane started the season as third choice in Mauricio Pochettino's team, but he has quickly climbed up the pecking order and Neville has praised the centre-forward for the progression he has made this season.

"Harry Kane," he responded when asked who has been the Premier League's most improved player this season. "When you saw him play in the Premier League previously you wondered whether he could do what he’s doing now, the goals he’s scored and the impact he’s having. He’s been fantastic. He looks like a real physical presence."

Kane's emergence as a genuine scoring threat has been a major reason behind the improvements Spurs have made in recent weeks.

Pochettino made a slow start as manager of the North London side, but they are starting to move forwards under his guidance and Kane's form up-front has helped them in this respect. 

The 21-year-old has looked an accomplished marksman, despite his inexperience, and Neville's recognition of his quality is certainly justified.

Jamie Carragher, who joins Neville on Monday Night Football, voted for former Spurs man Gylfi Sigurdsson as his most improved player, after the Icelander's dazzling form for Swansea City so far this season.
