This comes after Ornstein co-hosted a recent episode of The ’s Ornstein & Chapman Podcast where he spoke about the biggest talking points around at this moment in time.

Spurs have had quite a few odd players over the last ten years, but can you remember them? Here is the first one, who is this former Tottenham man?

On the subject of Kane, his current situation at Spurs in terms of his injury issues, a potential away from the club this summer and the upcoming European Championships with England, Ornstein had this to say on the matter.

He said: “I think it’s incredibly unlikely, and people I speak to suggest [there’s] no chance that he’s going to be allowed by Daniel Levy to leave this summer, nor are clubs going to come forward with this sort of money that would tempt him to part with Kane and therefore, despite it being a legitimate talking point, I don’t think it’s going to overshadow England’s Euros in any way and also, I don’t think Kane would let it because he is the ultimate professional.

“When he has had this succession of , I think, was it earlier this season, he did both ankles, I really wondered [if] Kane’s injury record [is] starting to catch up on him. In the first couple of games back he just wasn’t quite himself and you wondered [if it’s] all going to start to go wrong for him, and he’s gone and had an even better season.

“He’s really actually pleasantly surprised me that he looks better than ever, and he’s turning 28 this summer, he’s got hopefully a good few years ahead of him to chase down Alan ’s League goalscoring record.

“I think Kane and his club future will not have any bearing on England’s Euros chances.”

Kane, who is a product of Spurs’ youth academy, made his senior debut for the Lilywhites back in 2011.

Since then, the 27-year-old, who is currently valued at £108 million, has made 330 appearances for Tottenham across all competitions, racking up a total of 219 goals and providing 46 appearances in the process (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on David Ornstein’s comments on Kane…

Given how Kane’s Spurs future has been called into question in recent weeks and the fact that he suffered an injury to his ankle in the club’s recent match against Everton, it’s understandable why these issues could have some impact on Kane in regards to the Euros this summer.

Considering Kane has scored more goals and provided more assists than any other Tottenham player so far this season as well as being their highest-rated player for his performances in the Premier League, it’s easy to see why his latest injury or the uncertainty over his future could be a concern for many Spurs fans.

Do you think Harry Kane will be at Tottenham next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hopefully, Kane can overcome his latest injury issue and focus on ending the season strongly with Spurs and then have a successful tournament with England this summer.
