Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew speaks highly of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

England Under-21 international Kane has been in impressive form in recent weeks and has established himself in Tottenham’s starting line-up.

A hard-working footballer, the 21-year-old has looked good with his finishes and has linked up well with fellow attackers.

Kane could start against Newcastle at White Hart Lane in the quarter-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday, and Pardew knows the danger his compatriot poses.

“I think he is fabulous,” The Daily Star quotes Pardew as saying. “I watched him on Sunday (against Swansea City) and when you have got an English striker who can do 13km at pace and also have great quality and technical ability in the box, Roy Hodgson should count himself very lucky.”

Kane has yet to earn a full England cap, but given his current form, it is only a matter of time before he does so.

The Tottenham striker has scored only three goals and created six chances in 12 Premier League appearances so far, but he has only recently started to feature prominently under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Kane has a lot of room for improvement, of course, but at 21 he has time on his hand.
