A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Harry Kane has been quoted by ESPN explaining that he knows he’s more than a one season wonder.

Kane is yet to find the back of the net in the current campaign, after ending last season as the club’s top scorer.

Kane feels hard work is the key for him finding the back of the net and getting his form moving in the right direction.

“I know I am more than that (a one-season player). I don't think last year was lucky. I worked very hard to get where I was and I know I have got to keep working hard to progress,” he said.

Kane has also been quoted by the official FIFA website explaining that he’s hoping to learn from Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Rooney is one of England’s longest serving players and someone who will likely end his career as the country’s all-time top scorer.

Kane has stressed that Rooney is the perfect example that consistency over an extended period of time is possible.

“When you look at someone like Wayne - doing it year in, year out, playing for club and country and doing so well - it shows it can be done,” he said.

Kane’s dry spell this season has seen many messages of advice, with the player detailing one he’s received from Alan Shearer.

Shearer had a good record in England colours and is a legend at one of the biggest clubs in the country; Newcastle United.

Kane has explained that it was beneficial to spend some time talking with the former player.

“He said the best strikers in the world just put it to the back of their mind and focus on the next chance or goal – and that’s what I try to do,” Kane is quoted by the Shields Gazette.
