Former Tottenham Hotspur hero Graham Roberts has hit back at pundit Richard Keys over his claims Harry Kane will sign for Manchester United.

Keys wrote on his personal blog this week that he believes Kane will leave Tottenham to sign with Manchester United 'soon', if he is not offered an improved contract - despite the striker pledging his commitment to the club verbally.

Roberts reached out to Keys on Twitter to correct him, and explain just why the striker will not be leaving White Hart Lane.

 

Keys responded to Roberts, raising the spectre of Sol Campbell, who left Tottenham for rivals Arsenal and became a hated figure in the process.

Roberts' reply focused on the fact he feels Kane is a more genuine person to deal with than Campbell, and will not go back on his word.

 

While negotiations are ongoing regarding an improved contract for Kane, there isn't any urgency because Tottenham hold the cards, with his deal already relatively long term.

Kane has little reason from a footballing perspective to leave now, and is at a club he loves, and you have to expect that sooner or later Tottenham and the striker will reach an agreement which puts the rumours to bed.
