Tottenham Hotspur have remained firm in their stance that Harry Kane is not for sale despite the striker’s attempts to force through a move to Manchester City, Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed.
Nuno Espirito Santo refused to reveal too much about the situation in his press conference on Wednesday, insisting that the matter will be dealt with internally.
Kane is expected to return to training later this week to meet the new Spurs head coach for the first time.
Di Marzio has now explained that Tottenham have not accepted the England captain’s demands for a move and are determined not to sell him this summer.
He states that Spurs expect Kane to honour his contract which has three more years left to run.
He also asserts that the North London club have no intention of selling the 28-year-old to a domestic rival and their position makes it ‘very difficult’ for the striker to leave.

Kane must undoubtedly be regretting his decision to go on strike as he will likely find that it has only strengthened Daniel Levy’s resolve to hold on to him.
At this point, I want Spurs to cash in on him if City are ready to pay anywhere close to £150m.
While Kane will still give 100 per cent if he remains at the club, I do not want to see him in a Spurs shirt again if he does not want to be here.
