Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is expecting to be at White Hart Lane for ‘a very long time’, while he is also harbouring dreams of winning trophies with club and country.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed a magnificent 2014/15 campaign, becoming the first Spurs striker since Gary Lineker to scoring 30 goals in one season.
Anyone that is involved in the beautiful game knows what a fantastic story this has been to see a young striker break through so quickly in the Premier League, setting the world alight both domestically and internationally. In terms of Kane's England career thus far, he has done all that has been asked of him – both at U21 and senior level – with Gareth Southgate and Roy Hodgson quick to sing his praies.
It can be difficult not to get carried away in such situations, but the sky really does appear to be the limit for Kane. Next season will be vitally important to his progression and development, though, to see if he can add long-term consistency to his game. That, as a matter of fact, is what will determine whether he is a top goalscorer or not.
We have seen many Premier League strikers come and go after one good season, but Kane is looking much further than that.
"I think to carry on and keep progressing and keep getting better," Kane said on the new series of The Clare Balding Show which airs Thursday night at 8pm on BT Sport 1.
"Obviously this season has been, like I say, crazy and more than what I ever expected to do so early on but it’s happened and it’s how you deal with it and obviously I am hoping to go on and win many trophies for Spurs and for England, that’s always been the aim since I was a kid, dreaming of lifting the trophy one day for them so that’s what I’ve got to do.
"A lot of hard work along the way and hopefully we can achieve it."

Kane knows, in order to achieve such heights in the football profession, he will need to keep working hard. He plans on doing that at White Hart Lane despite speculation linking him with big-money moves elsewhere.
Kane added: "I want to be a player that does everything he can to reach his ability and I’ll do that, I’ll keep working hard, obviously I want to win trophies like any other player would and yeah, like I say, Spurs is where I’m at and where I plan to be for a very long time so we’ll be looking to win some good trophies in the future."
