Lineker: Tottenham secured the best signing of the January transfer window

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has suggested the club pulled off the deal of the January transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker suggested via social media app BreatheSport that the club’s decision to give Harry Kane a new long term deal was the best deal of the January transfer window.

The BBC was among the first sources to confirm the news after Tottenham announced the forward had agreed to a five-and-a-half year deal which takes him through to 2020.

Kane has been in awesome form so far this season notching up his 20th goal in all competitions during Tottenham’s 3-0 win against West Brom last weekend.

The club have to be praised for showing the intelligence to move quickly over getting his long term future secured, as some big sides could have started taking a look at signing him this summer.

The challenge for Kane is to now find a way that he can get more out of his game at Tottenham and he’ll already be looking to improve his quality.

The challenge for Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino is keeping him injury free, finding the right system to get the most out of him and finding a way to prevent him from becoming complacent.
