Paddy Kenny believes that Son Heung-min and Tanguy Ndombele could follow Harry Kane out of Tottenham this summer.
It is already pretty evident that the Kane transfer saga is going to dominate the back pages of various publications through the summer.
It remains to be seen whether any club would be able to lure the 27-year-old away from Spurs, with Daniel Levy backed to fight to keep the striker at the club for at least 12 more months.
Kane’s embrace of Dele Alli and Son after the 4-2 win over Leicester on Sunday certainly seemed to hint towards a final farewell in the last game of the season.
Kenny believes that the England captain’s departure might cause both Son and Ndombele to also call time on their Tottenham careers.
The South Korean was reportedly close to agreeing on a new contract with the club but Kenny believes that the forward could now re-evaluate.
The former Leeds goalkeeper told Football Insider: “If they do get that money for Kane, they can use that to strengthen elsewhere.
“If the likes of Son and Ndombele are as ambitious as Kane, they are going to want to leave, aren’t they?
“You see a player like him go and not be replaced, that’s going to make them want to go.
“They want to be playing in the Champions League on a regular basis. Tottenham’s chances of getting European football with Kane being out are going to be even harder.
“So these players could be moving on. Unless they invest, they could see themselves dropping down the league. They aren’t going to have the players they had before.”

Kane’s departure will not only send the wrong message to the likes of Son but would also make Spurs a much less attractive destination for our managerial and player targets. Given that the club do seem to be at a crossroads, this would be the worst possible time to lose Kane.
