The latest comments on the part of wantaway Tottenham star Harry Kane should provide the club’s fanbase with a reason to smile.
Kane wants out
The bombshell news which Spurs fans across the globe were no doubt long dreading was of course finally forthcoming back in May.
This came in the form of widespread reports that star hitman Harry Kane had informed the club of his desire to move on this summer, in search of silverware.
The revelation, originally brought to the fore by Sky Sports News, was subsequently picked up on by a host of sources across the English media, amid the seemingly widespread understanding that Kane is indeed eyeing a new adventure.
#THFC are now making enquiries about replacement centre-forwards, in the first indication that the club are willing to consider the feelings of their 27-year-old talisman.

The weeks since, meanwhile, have inevitably seen a whole host of European giants tipped to swoop for the English international.
None, though, have been more persistently linked than Manchester City. In fact, just two weeks ago, word was forthcoming that the Premier League champions had tabled a big-money bid for Spurs’ star man:
Manchester City made an official proposal to Tottenham for Harry Kane. Â£100M guaranteed + availability to include players in the deal.#THFC have NO intention to accept. Harry wants to go, but Levy will try to keep him. ❌
Harry now focused on the Euros, then itâll be decided.

‘Want to be wanted’
Such speculation, coupled with the embarrassment that proved the club’s search for a new manager, had no doubt left the majority of the Lilywhites’ faithful feeling altogether pessimistic when it comes to prospects for the season ahead.
As outlined above, though, on Monday, some seemingly positive news has finally been forthcoming for Spurs.
This comes in the form of the latest comments stemming from the English national camp, on the part of none other than the aforementioned Kane.
After again being drawn on his future during a media session, the 27-year-old – who has notched three goals in his last two Three Lions appearances – hinted at a Tottenham stay, in explaining:
‘I heard Paratici wants me to stay at Tottenham and of course as a player you want to be wanted, you want to feel like youâre loved – which I do. Itâs nice to hear and gives motivation. Iâm sure weâll get to know each other after the Euros.’
From here, Kane was also drawn on the instillation of Nuno Espirito Santo on the bench in North London, following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal back in April.
And the hitman again sounded altogether positive in his response, adding:
‘Whenever a new manager comes in, I guess thereâs a level of excitement around the club. Nuno is a great manager and did a great job at Wolves, got them playing a really good way. Iâm sure weâll be in contact after the tournament.’
