Former Coventry City striker, Noel Whelan has revealed that he cannot see Harry Kane staying at Tottenham Hotspur beyond the end of the season.
Kane has not only been outstanding for Tottenham this season but the striker has arguably been the best player in the Premier League, leading both the goals and assists charts.
With Spurs not currently having the best of campaigns, the striker’s future has unsurprisingly been subject to a lot of speculation.
There have also been suggestions that Spurs are holding talks with Kane over a new contract, with David Ornstein even revealing earlier this week that his sources say that the striker could spend the rest of his career with the Lilywhites.
However, Whelan believes that Kane will ask to leave Tottenham this summer and added that his departure could pay the way for a mass exodus.
When asked about Kane’s future, the pundit told Football Insider: “I can’t see them keeping Harry Kane. And if he leaves, a lot of them will want to leave. He has so much power at that football club.
“If he is any aspirations of winning anything, he’ll leave. He’s not going to win anything at Tottenham. I can’t see them winning the league.
“This could be Harry Kane’s finale. He’s given them the benefit of the doubt. He stayed last season when he should have left.
“He’s probably got four or five years at the top left and he’s got to make a really tough decision. I don’t think any Tottenham fan would begrudge him leaving given the amount he’s put into that football club.
“Horrible decision to make but he has to make it. He deserves success.”

Whelan is certainly right when he says Spurs fans will not begrudge Kane a big move in the summer as he is too good not to be competing for the biggest trophies in the game. However, I just cannot see any club paying the kind of fee that Daniel Levy would demand for the striker this summer with three years left to run on his contract.
Unless Kane sulks and throws his toys out of the pram, I cannot see him getting a move away from Spurs and we all know that the 27-year-old is too much of a consummate professional to do that. So, the only way I can see him leaving Tottenham is if he refuses to sign a new deal and thus force’s the club’s hand to sell him a year or two down the line.
