Peter Crouch says Harry Kane should remain at Tottenham

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch says that Harry Kane should remain at Tottenham Hotspur for the foreseeable future.

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch said on The Sports Bar show on talkSPORT on Wednesday night that Harry Kane should remain at Tottenham Hotspur.

Kane is one of the best young English players and enjoyed a breakthrough season in the 2014-15 campaign.

The England international striker scored 21 goals and created 27 chances in 34 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season.

The 22-year-old’s impressive performances did not go unnoticed by some of England’s biggest clubs, with The Guardian claiming in August that Manchester United were interested in him.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham striker Crouch has said that he understands the temptation of joining a top-four Premier League club, but he believes that Kane’s long-term interests are best served at White Hart Lane.

“I think he can fulfil what he wants to fulfil at Spurs," Crouch said on The Sports Bar show on talkSPORT on Wednesday night when asked if Kane should leave Tottenham if he gets the chance to move to a bigger club.

"He could move on if he gets the opportunity to play for one of the top-four clubs at the minute. Of course, it is an attractive offer, but the grass is not always greener (on the other side).

“He could move, and like we have seen before with so many good and young English players, they have gone, not played and been on the bench.

“At Spurs, he is loved by all the fans. He feels wanted, he is a huge part of what the club are trying to do, and that is one of the reasons why he scored so many goals last year.”

Kane is hugely popular among the Tottenham fans, and it is unthinkable at this moment in time that the North London club would even contemplate selling him.

Moreover, as his struggles in front of goal continue for Spurs, it is becoming clear that the youngster is not ready to join a Champions League club just yet.
