Tottenham star Harry Kane reassures the Spurs faithful amid transfer talk

The 21-year old has been speaking in the wake of reported interest in his services from Manchester United.

Harry Kane’s meteoric rise last season has seen the rumour mill in full swing, with Manchester United the most heavily linked.

Speculation that The Red Devils would table a bid has been rife, and £40 million is the rumoured figure quoted in the Daily Mail.

The England international striker has now addressed the issue in an interview which is sure to be music to the ears of Tottenham Hotspur fans.

"I have seen there is interest but that's all I know. It is flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested," Kane is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs."

The prospect of Daniel Levy entertaining any bids for Kane at this stage was unlikely, but Kane’s words will give added reassurance nonetheless.

Recent years have seen the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale leave in huge transfers, but the latest star at White Hart Lane insists he’s going nowhere.

Pressed on whether he could turn down one of the Premier League’s so-called ‘big clubs’, Kane responded: "Tottenham are one of the big clubs. That is the way people have to see it. I am at a big club."

While his words will be welcomed by everyone at Spurs, it’s vital the club remain proactive in building a squad to compete for a top-four berth. The harsh reality is that the Champions League remains a tantalising carrot dangled in front of emerging stars and non-participation in it makes retaining the best talent an uphill struggle.
