David Ornstein has told Sky Sports that Harry Kane’s decision to publicly talk about his Tottenham future may have changed Daniel Levy’s plans.
In a candid interview with Gary Neville last week, the striker hinted that he will have talks with Daniel Levy about his future and suggested that he would be allowed to leave the club if he wanted to.
However, reports since then have suggested that Tottenham’s stance regarding Kane has not changed, with Levy set to demand close to £200m for the striker’s services.
The Spurs chairman reportedly continues to maintain that he will not sell the talismanic striker to a domestic rival.
However, Ornstein has now suggested that Kane’s interview may have had the desired effect on the Tottenham hierarchy.
He claims that, while those at Spurs were disappointed at the timing of Kane’s revelation as it disrupted their end to the season, they are now coming around to the idea of letting the 27-year-old go.
Ornstein claims that Levy could now be willing to sell the England captain to a domestic rival this summer if his asking price is met.

It very much looks as though this transfer saga is going to drag on until the final few weeks of the transfer window. Whatever the decision the club makes regarding Kane, I hope we do it early so that our summer plans are not disrupted.
With or without Kane, the squad is in need of a significant rebuild and the last thing we need would be for the transfer to go through in the final week or so and then scramble for replacements.
