Glenn Hoddle believes that Harry Kane is more likely to push for a move this summer if he lifts the European Championship with England as that will give the striker a taste of winning silverware.
While Kane has already won an array of individual accolades, he is yet to win any major team trophies in his club or international career.
The 27-year-old has an opportunity to break his duck when the Three Lions step out for the finals of the Euros at Wembley on Sunday as they attempt to win the country’s first major honour since the World Cup win in 1966.
While Kane’s entire focus will be on Sunday’s final, the striker’s future at Spurs is in doubt, with the likes of Manchester City reportedly keen on snapping him up.
Some sources indicate that despite the England captain’s willingness to take on a new challenge, Spurs have no intention of letting him leave.
However, Hoddle fears that lifting the trophy on Sunday would make Kane more likely to leave his boyhood club this summer.
The legendry Tottenham midfielder told talkSPORT: “He wants to be as successful as he can be. If they do that, Harry will be holding up that trophy.
“That will give him a bit of a taste and he’ll think, ‘I need this and I want this a bit more’.
“It might go against Tottenham in many ways and it might be what he wants to do if he goes to Man City.”

Some Spurs fans will be hoping that Kane would not be as desperate to win silverware at club level if he lifts the Euros, thus making him more likely to stick around at Spurs.
However, I believe Hoddle is right in saying it would make him more likely to push for a move as he would want to keep winning trophies once he gets a taste of it.
The reason I still believe he will stay at Tottenham for one more season is that he is too much of a professional to sulk if he does not get a transfer.
