WH Lane

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Monday evening.

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has been full of praise for Harry Kane, after the Tottenham striker scored on his first England appearance from the bench in the 4-0 win over Wembley against Lithuania in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

Austin was also tipped to be part of the England squad but missed out this time, but quoted in the London Evening Standard, Austin seems to be happy for the 21-year-old.

He said: “If you look at the strikers, three picked themselves in Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck. If you don’t pick Harry Kane in the form he’s in — he has been incredible....so I didn’t expect to be picked.

“I was actually very pleased he scored [against Lithuania] and rightly so because he has been on fire this season. It’s great for him to carry on the way he has done, get his debut and score. I was really pleased for him."

Emmanuel Adebayor has been linked with yet another move away from the club, with TalkSport picking up on a report linking him with a move to Turkish side Bursaspor, with the radio station citing LigTV.

Adebayor is low down the pecking order at White Hart Lane at the moment with Kane currently in a purple patch, and Mauricio Pochettino seemingly opting for Roberto Soldado ahead of Adebayor.

They say that the player's officials have already met with the Turkish club. There were strong rumours in January linking Adebayor with a move away from Tottenham with Chairman Daniel Levy said to be keen to get a big earner off the wage bill - with the striker's contract running out at the end of next season.
