Journalist reveals what sources have told him about Kane staying at Spurs long-term


The Athletic’s David Ornstein has now revealed that his sources tell him Harry Kane could end up spending the rest of his career at Tottenham after previously suggesting that the striker wants to leave. 

Following Tottenham’s elimination from the Europa League on Thursday, there have predictably been question marks raised about Kane’s future at Spurs, with some suggesting that he should leave the North Londoners in order to win silverware. 

The striker has previously been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain but there have also been reports claiming Spurs have opened talks over a new contract for Kane.

Ornstein weighed in on the England captain’s future on Sunday, revealing that the 27-year-old wants to leave Tottenham but that the North Londoners are unlikely to sell him this summer.

The journalist has now stated that his sources have confirmed that the chances of Kane leaving Spurs are “really small”.

He said on the Ornstein & Chapman podcast (as relayed by HITC): “Quite a few contacts I’ve spoken to in the last 24 hours or so think Harry Kane will be at Tottenham for the rest of his career.

“We obviously don’t know how that will pan out, but the sentiment being that the chances of him leaving look really small.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

I do not expect Kane to leave Spurs this summer as he still has three years left on his contract with the club and no club in Europe is likely to afford the £150m-plus it would take to get him. However, I am not so sure that he is going to spend the rest of his career at Spurs.

If the striker does not see the club moving in the right direction, he might decide not to sign a new contract. That would force the club to sell him in the summer of 2022 if they wish to get decent value for him in the market.
