The striker says he will pick the brains of the Manchester United and England captain, while insisting his fitness is not an issue.

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane will seek the advice of Manchester United and England captain Wayne Rooney on how to end his goal drought, reports the Independent

The youngster was the breakout star of last season as he took the Premier League by storm, finishing with 21 goals to his name and as the league’s second highest goalscorer behind Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

Four games into this season and he has found the going a little tougher, with the goals not flowing quite as easily - with him once again drawing a blank against Everton last time out.

Kane, though, he says he will seek the advice of Rooney, after seeing him recently end his own run without a goal by netting a hat-trick against Club Brugge in the Champions League.

"We have only been here a couple of days so far but I am sure we will get to talk to him as the week goes on," the Independent reports him as saying.

"I’ll be able to pick his brain and see how he dealt with it, what he did to keep in good shape and keep fit over all those years and try and use that to help me."

No sign of fatigue after a busy summer

Concerns have been raised that Kane will suffer from burn out this season after featuring so heavily for Spurs in their 2014/15 campaign.

He has also had a busy summer, in which he played a part in the club’s post-season friendlies before heading out on international duty with the England U21’s in their ill-fated European Championship campaign.

The 22-year-old insists that he is fresh, though, and is feeling as fit as ever despite such a hectic schedule.

"I’m definitely fresh. I had a few weeks off after the tournament, got away, cleared the mind and reflected on last season,” he added.

“I’ve come back in good shape and I feel as fit as ever to be honest. I am 100 per cent healthy and I think my game hasn’t dropped compared to last season in terms of the distance I have run. I am in really good shape and I am excited for the games ahead."
