Harry Kane’s response when asked whether he would leave Tottenham this summer

The Tottenham star has commented on the rumoured transfer interest in him.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Harry Kane has played down chances of him leaving Spurs this summer, confirming that he would not accept an offer to move elsewhere should one arrive.

When asked if he would accept a transfer, Kane said: “No, Tottenham is a big club and that's the way I see it. There's a very bright future ahead and I'm happy. The whole team is happy and we are all heading in the same direction.”

These are certainly comments that should delight Tottenham fans, especially considering the quality of the teams reportedly interested in signing the 21-year-old hotshot.

The Mail has claimed that he has been scouted by Real Madrid this past season, whilst the Star reported on interest from Manchester United.

Those two teams would be enough to entice many players into a move, but Kane has expressed his intention to remain with his local team, who have given him the chance to impress in the first-team set-up - to great reward.

The youngster, who is preparing to feature for England at the European Under-21 Championships this summer, ended the season with 31 goals in 51 games across all competitions. He was the Premier League’s second highest goalscorer, and truly broke through as a classy talent with a great eye for goal.

There are fears that missing out on the Champions League could spell the end of Kane’s time at White Hart Lane, but he is clearly relishing his opportunity to play for the team he supports.

That local fandom could play a key role in Spurs keeping hold of Kane if formal offers are submitted for his services, and it is a delight to see a player favouring support over financial benefit - especially in the modern world of football.
