Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold issues exciting Harry Kane contract claim

Tottenham Hotspur reporter Alasdair Gold would not be surprised to see Harry Kane put pen to paper on a new deal this summer. 

The Spurs correspondent was discussing the England captain’s future in N17 on his YouTube channel ahead of the final game of the campaign on Sunday.

Do you expect Kane to sign a new deal?





Kane now has two years remaining on his deal with the Lilywhites and has had his future heavily speculated over the course of the last year.

However, with a potential move to Manchester City now out of the picture as a result of them agreeing to sign Erling Haaland, it has left Gold feeling a contract extension could be a realistic option.

Going into the final game of the 2021/22 season, it looks likely Spurs will secure a spot in the top four, which could play a major part in Kane’s decision.

He said: “I think if top four’s there especially, I think it becomes such an easier decision for everyone just to crack on with what they’re doing.

“I don’t think there becomes any questions about Harry Kane’s future. Like I think I’ve said before, I wouldn’t be stunned if there ends up being a new contract for Harry Kane if Spurs get top four, to reward him.

“You might think maybe Harry Kane’s best thought would be to just see out his contract. But I don’t know, I don’t get the impression he’s that kind of guy. And hopefully, you know, he loves Conte, and I think he’ll see where Conte is hopefully going to take them.”

TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…

What a difference a year can make. This time last year it looked as if Kane may have played his last game for the north London side, with the striker seemingly saying his goodbyes to the fans in N17.

However, with Spurs on the brink of Champions League football, we think north London is the best place for Kane to be, with a move to City no longer a possibility.

Kane struggled to get going this season, but the arrival of Antonio Conte quickly changed that, and we do not think there are any realistic destinations which can provide Kane with what Spurs should be able to for next season.

Manchester United have been linked, but would Kane really feel their project under Erik ten Hag – potentially in the Europa Conference League – is better than what is going on in N17? It seems Gold’s hunch could well be correct.
