The forward is anticipating a bright future at the club and is keen to be a part of it.

Harry Kane has insisted he’s a 'Tottenham boy' in the wake of Manchester United’s reported interest, in quotes carried by the Manchester Evening News.

After a superb debut season last year in which he finished as the Premier League’s second highest goalscorer, despite only starting his season in November, there was speculation that Kane would be the subject of a big money move this summer.

One club who were reportedly willing to dig deep for his services were Manchester United, as manager Louis van Gaal sought another striker to help Wayne Rooney.

A move never happened, and Kane has suggested that it never will, saying he is fully committed to Spurs after growing up with the club.

“I am a Tottenham boy,” the MEN report him as saying.

“I have grown up with the club. I know the club and I love the club. We have got a great team, a young team that is only going to get better and better. I am happy. I am happy to be playing.”

Everything going in the right direction at Tottenham

The forward also believes that he and the rest of his Tottenham Hotspur teammates are ready to kick on and become a force in future.

Mauricio Pochettino has a young squad at his disposal, with the likes of Kane, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Christian Eriksen all first team regulars, with them being supplemented by a number of international stars.

Off the field they are also set to move to a brand new stadium in the near future, which could see them competing even further, and Kane says everything seems to be going in the right direction.

“Everything just seems to be going in the right direction so I am excited,” he added.

“We have a great manager and staff at Spurs and I can really see us just pushing on. I am excited for the future; a new stadium as well. The most important thing for me this season to be playing week in week out and getting game time.”
