Harry Kane has signed a bumper new deal at Tottenham Hotspur.

Harry Kane's new contract at Tottenham will earn him £150,000 per week, report The Times.

The England striker signed a new deal on Thursday which renews his contract until 2022.

The Sun also report Kane's contract makes him Tottenham's highest earner at £150,000 per week, smashing the previous high bar set at £95,000 - the wage paid to summer signing Moussa Sissoko.

The different outlets describe Kane as winning the power battle, with The Times reporting Spurs 'caved in' over Kane's terms, while The Sun write chairman Daniel Levy was forced into an 'embarrassing U-turn' after supporter backlash.

The wage risks Spurs' top players wanting similar increases, but with many recently signing extensions in recent months, they are unlikely to be able to justify doing so just yet.

The one player who could match Kane's earnings is goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is yet to sign a contract extension, with Spurs' previous high wage barrier of £100,000 creating a problem.

This has now been lifted and Tottenham should be more optimistic of renewing the French international's deal.

The wages may be more than Tottenham really wanted to shell out, but in the cases of Kane and Lloris, they are worth every penny.
