Harry Kane rejected the offer of a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month, according to The Athletic.
The report claims that the 28-year-old returned to Hotspur Way later than anticipated on August 7th, Spurs’ managing director of football Fabio Paratici arranged a meeting with Kane two days later to discuss his future.
Paratici was keen to get Kane to pledge his future to the club and held a lengthy meeting with the England captain which included a significant pay rise.
Kane, who was still hopeful of completing a move to Manchester City snubbed the offer from Paratici by insisting that he had no intention of putting pen to paper on a new deal.
There is said to be little appetite from Kane to sign a new contract, despite confirming that he would be staying at the club this summer.
The offer which Paratici made earlier this month was time-limited and is no longer on the table for the forward and there is no prospect of a new deal being offered to Kane anytime soon given the fact that he is now staying beyond the current window and has around three years left on his existing contract.
Kane was likely to have been determined to have pushed for a move to Manchester City and the prospect of a new deal at Spurs was something which would not have appealed to him.
The power of Kane’s future currently rests in the hands of Daniel Levy, given the duration of contract he still has to run in North London.
