Harry Kane is close to agreeing a new long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur that will see him become one of the Premier League’s highest-paid Englishmen, according to the Evening Standard.
Negotiations between the club and the striker have progressed, with Spurs keen to reward their talisman following his stellar season in which he scored 41 goals in all competitions.
Kane currently earns 100k-per-week plus bonuses and is contracted until 2022, however, the club are looking to ensure the player is earning in-line with his status as one of the top striker on the continent.
Best paid Englishman in Premier League
Harry Kane scored 30 Premier League goals during the 2017/2018 season – just missing out on a third successive Premier League Golden Boot to Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.
His goal scoring achievements this season saw him become only the third player after Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry to score 25 goals or more in three consecutive Premier League campaigns.
Currently, on 108 goals at the age of just 24-years-old, Kane has set his sights on breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League scoring record of 260.
Kane’s new contract
Tottenham are expected to double Kane’s current salary that will see him earn £200k-per-week plus bonuses, making him by far the best-paid player at the club.
Mauricio Pochettino signing a new contract just over three weeks ago will have somewhat influenced Kane’s decision to commit his long-term future to Spurs.
The England captain will have also been attracted by the prospect of leading his boyhood club into a new era as they return to N17 and their new stadium.
More new contracts
Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son are all expected to join Kane in committing their futures to the club as Pochettino continues to build his project in North London.
Harry Winks, Davinson Sanchez and Cameron Carter-Vickers have all already signed new contracts and Spurs could announce new player deals over the coming weeks.
