Kane, Vertonghen, Matic, Costa

Harry Kane was sad to decline a cheeky offer from a Tottenham fan, because he is playing for England instead.

Harry Kane may be in need of a rest after a hectic past 12 months, but he has at least turned down the chance to play in one match.

One young fan sent the Tottenham and England striker a letter, asking if he could join in for a kickabout.


The message did not go ignored by the forward, who wrote back kindly, explaining that he would not be able to make it because he is on international duty, with England set to face Estonia on Friday.


Kane's response showed a touch of class, and illustrated that he remains down to earth despite his huge success, and very much as Spurs fans would say 'one of our own'.

It may be beneficial for Tottenham if Hodgson did actually give Kane a rest, to avoid any risk of injury, in a match which is meaningless for England having already qualified for Euro 2016.

We'll let the last word here go to this superb response from a supporter about the letter...
