Former Tottenham Hotspur coach and current QPR boss Chris Ramsey told FourFourTwo that he never had any doubts over the passion and commitment of Harry Kane at White Hart Lane.
Ramsey has suggested that the talented young forward never showed a desire to want a Tottenham exit, even when the club was commissioning the various loan deals, which have played such an important part in his development.
“There were clubs interested in taking him last season – To be fair to the boy, at that time you’d have to drag him out of the club to get him to anywhere else,” he said.
“He knew his level and the players we had at the time and thought ‘I deserve to be picked’ – Harry is very down to earth, but he is also confident in his ability and rightly so.”
Kane couldn’t be blamed for doubting whether his chance was ever going to arrive, which could have seen him pushing for a move to another team on a permanent basis.
However, he backed himself and he trusted Tottenham to give him the opportunity to progress, eventually playing in their first team as opposed to the first team of another team.
The challenge now for Tottenham is going to be keeping him and protecting him because there are going to be some high profile rumours flying around.
In one case, Manchester United have already been linked with a £45 million move for the player, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The challenge for the player is building on the progress he has made over the last ten months and ensuring that he never gives Tottenham a reason to move him on.
