Former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie has predicted that Harry Kane will stay at Tottenham for the foreseeable future.
Kane’s current deal at Spurs runs out in the summer of 2024 and reports in England over the past few months have indicated that the North London club are more confident that the striker could put pen to paper on a new contract (The Athletic).
However, German publications continue to link the England captain with a move to Bayern Munich next summer.
Christian Falk claimed last week that Bayern are hopeful Kane will not sign a new contract with Spurs so they can launch an offer for him in 12 months.
Bild (27/07/22 via Sport Witness) even reported a month and a half ago that Julian Naglesmann’s side had already reached out to the Spurs striker’s entourage regarding a move to the Allianz Arena in 2023.
However, McAvennie believes that, given the direction that Spurs are moving in under Conte, Kane could be convinced that he could fulfil his ambitions of winning silverware at his boyhood club.
When asked about the 29-year-old’s future, the pundit told Football Insider: “Now that they’re competing in the Champions League and in the Premier League he’ll stay.

“I think he’s a Tottenham fan. Players are all about money now, I don’t think Harry’s got that, I don’t think he’s got a problem with money now. I’ve got medals in my cabinet, he doesn’t and that’s what you want, you want to win something.
“They got [Antonio] Conte, that was a magnificent start, and he’s got them playing well now. He’s got them playing with a bit of confidence and playing a style that Harry will like. That might be the sway.
“Harry will just want to play football but he’s a Tottenham boy and he sees that they’re trying. I’ve got a wee feeling that he’ll stay.
“Records are great but you need that winner’s medal and that’s what he’ll be wanting and I believe Harry Kane deserves that. They’re on the right track and that might sway him on side.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Kane has always maintained that he will stay at Spurs if the club are showing ambition and competing at the top end of the table.
The only time he pushed for a move was when we finished outside the top four for two consecutive seasons and did not show any signs of being able to return to where we were under Pochettino.
That has evidently changed following the arrival of Conte and after the club’s recent transfer business, and the 29-year-old appears to have fully bought into the project.
