The Athletic’s David Ornstein has dropped a huge claim on the latest instalment of The Ornstein and Chapman podcast, revealing several contacts have informed him that Harry Kane is set to spend the rest of his career at Tottenham Hotspur.
Earlier in the week, Ornstein himself suggested that Kane wanted to leave Spurs and that Daniel Levy would consider the sale if a bid upwards of £120m was made this summer, but the renowned journalist has since received new information.
The England international has already established himself as one of the greatest players to ever play for the capital club, bagging 160 Premier League goals in 237 appearances.
Kane is already second in Tottenham’s all-time top goalscorers, is in with a shout of breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League goals tally and could beat Wayne Rooney’s England record, but he has no silverware to show for it.
It’s led to suggestions that the Spurs academy graduate could leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in search of medals and trophies, but Ornstein has revealed Kane has no such intentions.
He said: “Quite a few contacts I’ve spoken to in the last 24 hours or so think Harry Kane will be at Tottenham for the rest of his career.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane…
Kane clearly has a goalscoring record worthy of more glory, and some may feel he is not showing enough ambition by committing his future to Tottenham.
The north London outfit have failed to win any silverware since 2008 when they lifted the League Cup, and the 27-year-old striker could feasibly end his career trophyless should that run continue for much longer.
However, loyalty is a rare commodity in the modern game, and many will praise his decision to stick by his boyhood club; let’s just hope it’s not a decision he lives to regret later down the line.
