The Tottenham Hotspur striker has been reflecting on his incredible journey over the past 10 months.

After a season which saw Harry Kane go from relative unknown to reaching the 30-goal mark, scoring on his England debut and receiving the PFA Young Player of the Year award, one could be forgiven for wondering how he's taken it all in stride with such apparent ease.

He has been, though, with there seemingly little that can ruffle the Chingford-born striker as he sets about becoming a talismanic figure for club and country.

The Spurs striker has been discussing his incredible journey in an interview on the club's official website.

On his first hat-trick against Asteras Tripolis:

It was a special feeling. My shot was blocked and I turned away in anger... the ball went wide and I got back into position, Fazio put a lovely ball into the back post and I got my first senior hat-trick... (It being) for Tottenham at WHL just made it that bit more special.

On his goalkeeping blunder in the same match:

In a way that gave me a good connection with the fans and they started singing my name after that. Some things happen for a reason so maybe it wasn’t all bad!

On the Aston Villa free-kick that cemented his place in the team:

I tried to compose myself and go through everything I do in training when I practice. (It went in) albeit via a deflection, that’s sometimes the bit of luck that you need and create for yourself. I’ve started every Premier League game since so it was definitely a defining moment in my season

On the 5-3 victory over Chelsea:

It was a chance for everyone to see what I could do against one of the bigger clubs and I took it with both hands. With the second goal people appreciated the technique of the turn and the hesitation before I shot. That was a special night for me.

On his first North London Derby:

Nabs (Nabil Bentaleb) put a lovely ball in, I made a little movement and he saw it. He hung the ball up and I timed my jump well and it was nice to see it go back across the keeper. For me to get both goals and win the game was definitely the highlight of the season.

On getting 30 goals:

Coco (Erik Lamela) put the ball through and I had a fair distance to run but I knew in my mind what I wanted to do. 30 goals was something I was desperate to get. After I got 20 goals I set 30 and knew it would be difficult. Once that goal went in it was such a relief to get the 30 and I had a big smile on my face after that.

On next season:

That’s what I’m excited about. Everyone is saying the second season is tough but I like the challenge. I know I’ve got to progress as a player and hopefully that pushes me on next season.

The fairytale looks set to continue for Harry Kane and Spurs fans will be excited to see what's next for the burgeoning star.

Replicating his achievements from 2014/15 will be a tough ask, with Premier League rivals now fully aware of what he brings to the table, but there is a belief about his game which suggests that the 21-year-old is capable of keeping his career on an upward curve.
