Glenn Hoddle: Why Harry Kane should stay at Tottenham

The former Tottenham midfielder wants to see Kane stay with Spurs.

Writing on his personal Kicca account, Glenn Hoddle gave his opinion as to why Harry Kane should stay with Spurs past this summer transfer window.

Hoddle said: “At this moment, one swallow doesn’t make a summer and he’s got to prove he’s the real deal. So my opinion is that, a bit like Raheem Sterling at Liverpool, Tottenham is the best place for him. He feels comfortable, he knows he’s going to be playing. For the next two years Harry Kane needs to be playing football in the way he has for the last year, injury free he will then progress to be the player we all think.”

Kane enjoyed a prolific season for Spurs during 2014/15, breaking into the first-team set-up and netting an impressive 31 goals in 51 games. He earned England recognition and is expected to continue his incredible progression next term.

He has been linked with a summer exit to one of England’s bigger clubs, with the likes of Manchester United said to be in for him, according to Sky Sports.

Of course, any move away brings financial benefits and chances of Champions League football, but Hoddle wants to see him stay at Spurs for his own benefit.

The youngster is guaranteed first-team football at White Hart Lane, and his development will continue whilst turning out in North London. Whereas, a move to Old Trafford would likely see his first-team chances limited, potentially stalling his rise to prominence.

Hoddle highlights a real issue that could prevent Kane from becoming a world beater if he is to leave Spurs this summer, and the former midfielder wants to see the youngster stay at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future - as do most other people.
