Tottenham respond to Harry Kane’s wish to quit as Daniel Levy prepares to dig in


Tottenham Hotspur have so far issued a somewhat terse response to Harry Kane’s wish to quit the club.

Kane’s rumoured desire to move on from north London has been rumoured for several months, but on Monday the story was firmed up by several sources as the England captain has seemingly reached the end of his tether.

With Spurs pretty much out of contention for a top four finish following a disappointing season which has seen the sacking of Jose Mourinho, an embarrassing exit in the Europa League and defeat in the Carabao Cup final, Kane has let it be known that he would wish to move on at the end of the season, and potentially even before this summer’s European Championships.

It is believed that he would prefer to stay in England as he continues his relentless pursuit of Premier League goals, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United all known to be huge admirers and all capable of paying what could be a £100million fee for the 27-year-old.

However, his desire for a swift conclusion is likely to be threatened by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, a ruthless negotiator who will have no interest in letting the club’s star asset leave swiftly or for what he feels is an unacceptable fee.

Levy has dugs his heels in over the sales of the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in the past, and Kane is likely to be no different.

On Monday night the club released a brief statement, declaring simply that: “We won’t be commenting – our focus is on finishing the season as strongly as possible. That’s what everyone should be focused on.”

Tottenham face Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday – when fans will be in attendance – before rounding off their season away at Leicester on Sunday.

There is still a very slim chance that they could finish in the Premier League’s top four, but preserving sixth place and a spot in the Europa League – avoiding the new Europa Conference League – will be their focus on the pitch.

Off it, Kane will continue to dominate the headlines.
