The Athletic’s David Ornstein has revealed that Harry Kane remains open to signing a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur.

Over the last week, multiple publications have claimed that Spurs might decide to cash in on Kane for around £100m due to his unwillingness to sign a new contract (The Telegraph).

The Athletic have now explained that the Tottenham hierarchy have been unable to open talks with the striker over recent months due to his involvement in the World Cup and the club’s subsequent focus on the January transfer window.

However, Spurs have reportedly planned to meet with the 28-year-old’s entourage once the January transfer window shuts.

Ornstein states that the striker is willing to put pen to paper on a new deal beyond 2024 if the ‘circumstances are right’, with the ambition shown by the club likely to be key to the England captain’s decision.

The journalist adds that Kane remains fully focused on winning trophies at Tottenham for the time being, and asserts that the striker’s agent’s have not held any serious discussions with potential suitors so far.

The fact that this is coming from a reliable journalist like Ornstein probably means that this information has been fed by agents (among other sources) rather than just being planted by the club to appease Spurs fans.

Just because Kane might be open to an approach, does not necessarily mean he is likely to sign a new deal. In fact, I doubt the striker would consider putting pen to paper unless our form dramatically improves over the coming weeks and months or until he knows who will be the club’s manager next season.
