Harry Kane has stated that he will only make a decision regarding his future after the end of the Euros in the summer.
The Tottenham striker has arguably been the best player across the Premier League so far this season, leading both the goals and the assists starts.
With Spurs struggling for consistency over the last couple of months, there has been plenty of speculation about the 27-year-old’s future.
However, it has also been suggested that Spurs are negotiating with the England captain over a new contract while David Ornstein revealed last week that his sources at Tottenham expect the striker to stay with the Lilywhites for the remainder of his career.
Kane has refused to be drawn into the various rumours floating around about his future, insisting that he is fully focused on finishing the season strongly with Spurs and then doing his best for England at the Euros.
When asked if the speculation could impact his performances, the striker told Sky Sports: “I think that’s a hard question to answer right now.
“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros. To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.
“I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros. Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible.
“I’m fully focussed on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”

This is really the only answer Kane could have given about his future. He obviously cannot say that he is guaranteed to stay at Spurs as that would worsen his bargaining position if he is negotiating for a new contract with the club. I do not see any club paying the kind of fee it would take to sign Kane in the summer even if the striker asks to leave.
