Andros Townsend has dismissed claims that Harry Kane’s performances for England have been down to the uncertainty over his future at Tottenham Hotspur.

Last month it was claimed that Kane had told Tottenham that he wants to leave the club this summer and has already had interest registered with his agent from Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United (Sky Sports).

Kane is yet to score in either of England’s opening two fixtures at Euro 2020. He was substituted against Croatia and Scotland, and has now only scored two goals in his last 11 England appearances, 

The 27-year-old came into the tournament having had an impressive season at Tottenham where he topped the Premier League charts for goals and assists despite the difficult campaign his club experienced.

Kane was interviewed by Gary Neville for The Overlap about his footballing situation and admitted that he wants to play with Kevin De Bruyne in the Champions League

Townsend, who came through the academy ranks with the England international claimed that Kane is ‘100 per cent’ sure that a club is going to break the bank for him this summer.

Townsend told Stadium Astro: “You know Harry Kane isn’t doing that interview with Gary Neville without knowing 100 percent of a club who’s going to break the bank to sign him. I don’t think he’s sitting there thinking ‘Is this club interested or are they not?’. He has put that to bed. For some reason he’s just snatching at chances.”

Regardless of what Kane thinks, unless a club matches Daniel Levy’s valuation there is no chance that the striker will leave given the fact that he has three years left on his contract.
