Transfer insider Dean Jones has spoken about Harry Kane and Daniel Levy’s relationship following some claims about his recent behaviour at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Kane transfer saga took something of a bizarre twist earlier this week after it emerged that the England captain did not turn up for training on the date that he was meant to as the team get ready for their upcoming Premier League campaign.
It has, however, been claimed through the Daily Mail that Kane is just isolating following his return from a holiday in the Caribbean, and should return to training by the upcoming weekend.
However, Jones, talking on The Football Terrace’s The Done Deal Show and before the Daily Mail’s claims emerged, hinted that Kane’s overall demeanour this summer is trying to serve a purpose, but that none of it is doing anything to change the mind of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is dead against the notion of selling him:
“I mean, from what I understand and what I’m told, Harry Kane said his goodbyes at the end of last season. Players and staff at Tottenham were left in little doubt that he was not expecting to return to the club for this season. Since then, things haven’t really opened up for Harry Kane as he would have hoped or have expected them to.
“There was the Gary Neville interview, there was the Sun story, there was this training ground strike, if you want to call it, by not turning up on Monday. Those three things have done little to convince Daniel Levy that he is going to now sell Harry Kane.”
TIF Thoughts on Dean Jones’ comments about Harry Kane and Daniel Levy at Tottenham Hotspur…
It certainly is a transfer saga that you can’t turn away from because you never know what is going to come around the corner, but at the heart of the matter, it really does seem to be boiling down to one man, and that’s Levy.
Well-known as a tough negotiator, if Jones is right that none of what Kane is doing this summer is going to change his mind on refusing to sell him, then you have to start to wonder what more, if anything, that the England captain can do to try and force his way out of the club.
Are you confident Harry Kane will be a Tottenham player next season?
You just hope that things can be dealt with in a civilised manner and things don’t turn too toxic, because what starts off as a potential transfer could end up turning into something a lot darker that could affect the whole club if things aren’t dealt with in a mature way.
