Glenn Hoddle urges Daniel Levy not to sell Tottenham hero Harry Kane after previous mistakes

Glenn Hoddle has commented on a 'magical time' for Tottenham Hotspur.

Ex-Tottenham player and manager Glenn Hoddle has told the Daily Mail that Spurs cannot even think about selling striker Harry Kane.

Spurs head into today's game against Everton with just two league defeats to their name this season, and some fans are starting to dream of even winning the title this term.

Mauricio Pochettino's men can go back to within four points of top spot with a win at Everton this afternoon, and he will once again be calling upon Harry Kane to score the goals to fire Spurs to a win.

Kane, 22, was the success story of last season, coming up through the ranks at Tottenham and scoring 31 goals in all competitions, becoming one of the Premier League's most deadly strikers and earning England international recognition in the process.

Many expected Kane to suffer a dip this season, and whilst he had a slow start to the season, he has now scored ten goals in his last ten Premier League games, hitting top form once again.

Some fans are concerned that Tottenham will end up selling their superstar striker for big money, given the history of chairman Daniel Levy - and now, former manager Glenn Hoddle has had his say on Kane's future.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Hoddle says Levy must not even think about selling Kane, having made mistakes over the years such as selling Teddy Sheringham and Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester United, as well as Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, all for big money.

Hoddle also claims that Levy made a mistake letting Harry Redknapp leave in 2012, and he must learn from that by backing current boss Pochettino in the transfer market this month.

"Certainly, there can be no thoughts of letting a club like United buy Harry Kane in the summer — and I don’t believe they would allow that," said Hoddle. "The days of players such as Teddy Sheringham, Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale departing have to be over. This is a magical time for the club, with a new stadium planned, and now is the moment to back the manager in the transfer market and invest."

"They should sign a striker in case Kane gets injured and bring in more players to capitalise on this unexpected turn of events. Mistakes have been made in the past. Letting Harry Redknapp go in 2012 was clearly the wrong move. Now the board have to get it right," he added.
