Brighton & Hove Albion’s Jake Forster-Caskey on Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Harry Kane’s success has made an impression on Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in The Sun.

England Under-21 international Kane has been in brilliant form so far this season and has been one of the best young players in the Premier League.

The 21-year-old has scored eight goals and created 14 chances in 18 Premier League appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 56%.

Kane has been successful in Europe too, scoring five goals and creating six chances in five Europa League matches.

Forster-Caskey plays alongside Kane in the England Under-21 side, and he is full of praise for the Spurs star, adding that he wants to follow in his footsteps and make a name for himself.

“It’s taken him a little time playing on loan at various clubs, but it’s all coming off for him now,” he told The Sun.

“Playing in the Under-21s has been a real step-up for me, but it also gives you a taste of wanting to play right at the top. When you see your mates, like Harry, on Match of the Day, you want to be on there, too.”

Brighton youngster Forster-Caskey is an Arsenal fan (click here to read more), and he believes that Kane will be cheering him on against Tottenham’s bitter North London rivals in the fourth round of the FA Cup at the Amex Stadium today.

“It’s such a shame he is a Tottenham player otherwise he’d be 100 per cent a top bloke!” he said. “I’m sure he’ll be cheering me on against Arsenal.”
