Tottenham Hotspur owner Joe Lewis is reported to be unhappy with Harry Kane over the way the forward has tried to secure a move to Manchester City, the Daily Mail have reported.

Speculation over Kane’s future in North London gathered momentum in May when Sky Sports claimed that the forward had reiterated his desire to the club to leave this summer.

The rumours were further fuelled on Thursday evening when The Sun reported that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy had changed his mind and informed the 27-year-old that he was prepared to sanction his sale to the Premier League champions in a £160million deal.

Respectable sources including Alasdair Gold and Charlie Eccleshare have both suggested that Tottenham’s stance remains that the England international is not for sale.

Lewis has been left annoyed over the situation and is now prepared to dig in his heels with the billionaire in no mood to be forced into selling the England captain.

Whether Lewis should be unhappy with Kane directly or those who surround him is more of the question.

Lewis rarely watches Tottenham in person and instead prefers to spend his time on a superyacht in the Caribbean (The Sun).  With Lewis having significant wealth, it is frustrating that he does not invest hundreds of millions of pounds into the club himself to help propel us to glory.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. They have bought a goalkeeper and a winger got rid of midfielder and defender does that sound like good preparation for the new season
    after last season I would have thought they would get a better defence

  2. As Lewis has made his billions from his business I’d of thought that he knows you have to speculate to accumulate if he invested in team now and we go on and win trophies that will bring in an awful amount of money and further spread the name of Tottenham and bring in riches and best players so invest
