Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has said that he has not spoken about a potential transfer with his agent ‘in weeks’.

Kane is represented by CK66, which is run by his brother Charlie with Kane claiming that the siblings have hardly spoken since he linked up with England ahead of their Euro 2020 campaign.

The 27-year-old is reported to have reiterated his desire to leave Spurs this summer with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all registering their interest (Sky Sports).

Kane, who is expected to lead out the Three Lions at Wembley on Tuesday night in their round of 16 knockout tie against old foes Germany has insisted that his full focus is on his country and has not been paying any attention to speculation in the media about his future.

Sky Sports claimed earlier this week that Manchester City have made a £100million offer to Tottenham for their star striker, while also being open to including players as a makeweight in the deal.

He told the Evening Standard: “I feel like when I come away with England I’m just fully focused on England,”

“My brother is my agent, but the only time I’ve spoke to my brother really over the last few weeks is ‘Good luck, let’s get a win, and let’s take England all the way.’

“So, yeah, it doesn’t really bother me about the outside noise. When I’m here I’m with the boys, I try to help the boys, be a leader in the team. I need to get to know the boys, see what makes certain players tick, and the younger lads, helping them. So I feel like I’ve got enough on my plate to worry about anything outside of England.

“That’s where I’m at, and of course I feel like it’s one of them where if you’re not scoring as a striker, people look for every little angle why you’re not scoring and that’s probably the case in this tournament so far. But as long as I’m focused, I’ve got the self-belief I have, I’m not worried about anyone else.”

When quizzed again about if is keeping up with what is going on at Spurs including the club’s search for a new head coach, he continued: “If I’m totally honest I don’t really read anything, no media,” 

He also played down whether he is tuning into social media for updates: “Not really. The only thing I normally go on is Instagram and I don’t really see anything on there. That’s just more pictures and things like that.

“That’s just the brutal honesty. I just keep myself to myself, I watch my series. I’m with the boys playing pool or table tennis. I just try to stay away from it all.

“The most important thing is about us as a group and us as a staff and as a nation and when you are in these tournament modes, sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with other stuff, but the experience I’ve had in the last few tournaments, is just to focus on this and do what you can in the moment and leave no regrets.”
