Speaking to ESPN, Shaka Hislop has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur's reported decision to give Harry Kane a new five-year deal makes "perfect sense".

The Guardian reported on Tuesday that the 22-year-old is set to sign a double-your-money new contract with Spurs worth approximately £95,000-a-week - making him the club's best paid footballer in the process.

The proposal comes a couple of months after Kane netted 25 Premier League goals to win the competition's Golden Boot, with Tottenham ultimately finishing third despite what seemed a serious title bid in the final months of the season.

"It makes perfect sense for Spurs from a business sense," the former Newcastle United goalkeeper told ESPN. "And it keeps a young, very talented and proven player at the club for the foreseeable future. It's right for the club and the player."

Tottenham fans have seen the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale lured away from North London in recent years, and supporters will be delighted if Kane ties himself to the club until 2021.

Of course, there's no guarantees he will be at White Hart Lane until then - not with the way football is today - but it does guarantee that it would take a lot of money to lure him away from the club.

Supporters will also be hoping the striker's woeful Euro 2016 with England does not have a knock-on effect at club level, with Kane failing to score in any of the Three Lions' four outings in France.
