Harry Kane discusses social media banter with Jamie Vardy

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and Leicester City star Jamie Vardy are England international teammates.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has told The Mirror that there is no bad blood between him and Leicester City star Jamie Vardy.

Until recently, Kane and Vardy were rivals for the Premier League title race. Leicester and Tottenham were fighting for the league title, with the two strikers aiming to win the Golden Boot.

In the end, the Foxes clinched the Premier League title while Spurs striker Kane became the top scorer.

During the title race, Kane and Vardy, both England international stikers, taunted each other on social media.

The Spurs striker posted a photo on Instagram of a group of lions on the prowl, suggesting that the North London outfit were hunting down Leicester.

Following Claudio Ranieri’s side triumph in the title race, Vardy posted a photo on Twitter from the Lion King, where Musafa falls from the rocks into a stampede of wildebeest.

Kane has made it clear that all this was just banter, and that there is no problem between him and fellow England international striker Vardy.

“I just congratulated him and Danny Drinkwater on winning the Premier League when we met up, but there's nothing been said about the lions yet,” Kane told The Mirror.

“It was just a bit of banter between fellow professionals – I gave him a bit on Instagram, so if you're happy to dish it out, you've got to take it, haven't you?”

Kane scored 25 goals and created 44 chances in 38 Premier League appearances for Tottenham this past season.

Vardy scored 24 goals and created 46 chances in 36 league matches for Leicester during the 2015-16 campaign.
