Harry Kane’s attitude draws praise from Tottenham Hotspur teammate Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been singing the praises of teammate Harry Kane to BBC Sport.

England Under-21 international striker Kane is enjoying a breakthrough season and has been one of the best players for Spurs so far this campaign.

In 19 Premier League appearances, the 21-year-old has scored 10 goals and created 14 chances, while having a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 58%.

Kane was on target again on Saturday, scoring twice against West Bromwich Albion away from home in the Premier League.

The Englishman’s brace at The Hawthorns saw him take his tally to 20 goals in all competitions this season, leading Lloris to shower him with praise.

"When you're from the academy, you always get support from the fans,” the France international goalkeeper BBC Sport. “He works hard, wants to improve and he has a great mentality.

"I hope he gets a chance for the national team, he has a great future for Tottenham if he keeps up with his mentality.”

Kane is an all-round striker whose main asset is his willingness to work hard and give his all for the team.

The youngster started the season behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor in the pecking order, but he is now one of the first names on the Tottenham teamsheet.

Perhaps it is too early to state whether Kane can go on to become a truly great striker, but the signs are certainly there.

As Lloris says, if Kane continues to remain humble and work hard, then he is surely going to get better in the coming years.
