Harry Kane plays it safe when asked about Tottenham-linked Saido Berahino

Tottenham WHL

The West Brom forward is reportedly close to completing a switch to Spurs.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has stopped short of endorsing a move for Saido Berahino directly, but has said new signings are welcome at the club, in quotes published by the Mirror.

"That's (Berahino’s move to Spurs) down to the manager and I don't really know what's happening,” said the 21-year old.

"It's up to him and what he wants to do. We'll welcome any player that the gaffer wants to sign and help us move forward as a club."

The Spurs striker was speaking after Saturday’s disappointing draw with Leicester, where another late collapse saw Mauricio Pochettino’s men fail to grab three points and further highlighted the need to strengthen.

Berahino meanwhile, was left out of the Baggies’ squad for Sunday’s visit of Chelsea, with manager Tony Pulis citing an unsettled mindset as the reason for his absence, in an interview with BBC Sport.

The Mirror reports that the England Under-21 international’s move to White Hart Lane is expected to be completed this week and claim that a £20 million plus add-ons bid will be enough to get the deal over the line.

While it hasn’t been the start to the season Spurs fans hoped for, there have been promising signs, and the club could easily be sitting on seven points as opposed to their current two if a little bit of luck had gone their way.

Variety and dynamism in attack has been a problem however, yet the landscape could look a whole lot rosier come Saturday if new-signing Clinton N’Jie and the fit-again Alex Pritchard are joined by the West Brom frontman.
