Harry Kane states he will help Dele Alli fit in at England training

Three Lions close

The Tottenham striker is set to help the debutant settle with The Three Lions.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has stated that he will help England new boy Dele Alli settle in with the national squad, The Guardian report.

The 19-year-old midfielder has been a standout performer for the White Hart Lane side this season and fitted immediately into Mauricio Pochettino’s squad following a £5 million summer move to North London from the MK Dons.

The teenager has been rewarded for his positive showings at club level with inclusion in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for upcoming fixtures, continuing Alli’s rise in the game.

Kane, who only received his own international debut earlier this year, has admitted that he will look to help Alli settle in the England squad.

“Andros [Townsend] was there, [Kyle] Walker was there, and they had been there before,” Kane sis quoted as saying by The Guardian.

“Me and Ryan [Mason] went in together and were new. We kind of hung out together until we got to know the players and trained with them.

“Everyone is so welcoming. No one will give Dele a hard time. We will work hard. You always wonder what it is like but as soon as you settle – and he knows St George’s Park from the Under-21s – it will be fine. It’s just a step up in level and training.

“I am sure we will have a little chat about it. I will probably spend most of my time with him there because we are Spurs and I want to look after him, make sure he settles in all right. That is what it is about.”

Alli has featured in central midfield alongside Eric Dier in recent times, with the pair combining well to play a major role in Spurs beating Manchester City 4-1 at White Hart Lane last weekend.

The teenager also has the ability to play further forward in the number ten role, with his versatility and enthusiasm a real bonus for Pochettino’s men this term as they look to clinch a top-four place.

Both Alli and Kane are expected to feature for their club against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.
