Journalist Dean Jones does not expect Daniel Levy to allow Harry Kane to run into the final 12 months of his contract.

Kane’s current contract at Tottenham runs out in July 2024 and the North London club are thus faced with a huge decision this summer in case the striker opts against signing a new deal.

Multiple outlets have reported over the last few weeks that Manchester United have made the England captain their number one priority this summer and are hopeful that they can strike a deal worth £80m plus add-ons (Daily Star).

However, other publications, including Football Insider have reported over the last few days that Spurs remain determined to tie the striker down to a new deal.

It was suggested that the North London club are even involving Kane in their search for a new head coach as one of their priorities is to make the sort of ambitious appointment that would convince the striker to commit his future.

Jones believes that if the 29-year-old opts against signing a new contract, Levy will cash in on him rather than allow a valuable asset to run into the final year of his deal.

When asked if Kane could potentially leave on a free in 2024, the journalist told GiveMeSport: “I would be surprised if Daniel Levy let that happen because I don’t think it’s really in the way he is as a person to let such a valuable asset leave for free. That would surprise me.”

In the event that Kane does not sign a new contract, it would be in Tottenham’s interest to cash in on him and use the funds to rebuild the squad.

We might not have clarity on the striker’s future anytime soon as it appears like Spurs will only sit down with Kane’s camp for talks once they have a new head coach and a director of football in place.
