Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has confirmed to supporters that the club inserted a buy-back clause into the deal which saw Bayern Munich sign Harry Kane earlier this summer.

The England captain completed his £100m transfer to the Bundesliga giants on the cusp of the new Premier League season which left new Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou without his star player days before taking his side to Brentford.

Kane signed a deal lasting until June 2027 and took over the No 9 shirt, which had previously been worn by the prolific Robert Lewandowski prior to his move to Barcelona.

Tottenham have Harry Kane buy-back clause

The 30-year-old left the door open for a return to Tottenham after completing the transfer when he posted a video on his social media accounts in which he said: “It’s not a goodbye because you never know how things pan out in the future, but it’s a thank you and I’ll see you soon,”

Earlier this evening, Levy took questions from supporters during a rare public appearance at the club’s first fan forum in five years which was held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium:

Levy was asked about the sale of the club record goalscorer and confirmed : “There is a buy back clause,” (Evening Standard).

Kane won the Premier League Golden Boot three times – in 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2020-21 – and with 213 goals from 320 games in the English top flight, needed just 48 more to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record, but decided to take a change in career direction and head to Germany instead.
