According to BT Sport Harry Kane has said that as we will play Champions League football in our new stadium next season, it will help us retain our top stars.
We booked a third successive campaign in Europe’s elite club competition with a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday courtesy of Kane’s 28th Premier League goal of the season.
Its a hugely impressive achievement given we’ve had to play at Wembley as our stadium is being redeveloped, while the clubs around us have spent far more on transfer fees and wages
As per usual a lot of our best players linked with moves away from the club, with Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Kane himself all reported to be on the radar of some of the biggest clubs on the continent.
Our infamous wage cap is a constant talking point but the prospect of playing in the Champions League at our new stadium offsets that.
“You never know in football. In transfer windows you can never put your finger on it,”:Kane said.
“But it is a big attraction, a massive new stadium, a great team.
He added: “The next step is winning stuff but this is a big year for us, hopefully we can have a massive year next year and win some trophies.(Champions League) is the big attraction, it is what everyone wants, especially the top players around the world. It’s massive.
He went on to say: “For us it is important with the new stadium. You want to be playing Champions League football and I can’t wait for those Champions League nights at the new home.”
