Dean Windass has dismissed rumours suggesting that Raheem Sterling could be used by Manchester City as a makeweight in a deal to sign Harry Kane from Spurs.

While the speculation surrounding Kane’s future is showing no signs of slowing down, it will not be easy to prise the striker away from Tottenham this summer as he still has three years left to run on his contract.

Manchester City seem like the most likely destination for the England captain if he does leave Tottenham this summer, with Pep Guardiola’s men expected to test the North London club’s resolve.

Some sources have even suggested that City are ready to offer Sterling as well as Gabriel Jesus to Spurs in an effort to convince them to part ways with Kane.

However, Windass has stated that it is not a deal that he can see happening, insisting that Sterling would not want to go to Tottenham and Guardiola would want to hold on to the 26-year-old.

When asked about the rumoured swap deal, the former Hull City star told The Transfer Tavern: “Why would Raheem Sterling want to leave? Would Pep want to lose Raheem Sterling? No.

“And I wouldn’t want to go. If Kane is coming the other way, why would you want to jump in a taxi and go the other way?”
