Neil Warnock has claimed Harry Kane would be more likely to win silverware if he joined Newcastle United than he would if stayed at Spurs, however, expressed doubts over whether the Magpies would be able to land the striker.

Kane is now into the final 18 months of his contract at Tottenham and his future has been the subject of plenty of speculation over recent months.

The 28-year-old is thought to be on Bayern Munich’s radar ahead of next summer’s transfer window, with the Bavarians said to be eyeing him as the man to finally fill Robert Lewandowski’s shoes (Sport BILD on 04/01/23 via Sport Witness) .

Meanwhile, some pundits have opined over recent weeks that Manchester United should break the bank to snap up Kane next summer if they harbour ambitions of competing with Manchester City (Daily Star).

Warnock has now suggested that a move to St James’ Park would make sense for the striker, given the upward trajectory that Eddie Howe’s men are on.  However, the former Cardiff City boss added that Daniel Levy would price Kane out of a move to the North East.

When asked if the England captain has a better chance to win trophies at Newcastle than at Tottenham, Warnock told talkSPORT: “Yes, you’re probably right, especially with the future coming up.

“I tipped them [Newcastle] in pre-season to finish in the top four, and everybody thought I was going round the twist. But they’ve just sustained that. The defensive situation the other night is as good as I’ve seen, against a very good Arsenal side.

“I always thought Manchester City, if they could get Kane when that came up last year, but look what they’ve done instead. I mean wow, [Erling] Haaland is unbelievable isn’t he?

“But if they could get Kane, Newcastle, that would be fantastic, but imagine dealing with Daniel Levy about Kane. They’d want £250 million wouldn’t they?”

There is no doubt that Newcastle will eventually be competing for the biggest trophies, given the resources that they now have. However, it could take another three to five years for them to consistently do so, which is why the move to St James’ Park will not be particularly appealing for Kane.

Manchester City are the only team in the Premier League who are guaranteed to compete for silverware every season, and now that they have signed Haaland, Kane will likely decide to commit his future to Spurs.
