Tottenham Hotspur interim head coach Ryan Mason has distanced himself from speculation surrounding Harry Kane’s future at the club.
News broke last night when Sky Sports reported that the forward has once again told the club that he wants to leave this summer which has led to Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea having all been in touch with Kane’s representatives expressing a desire to sign the England international.
Mason, who took over from Jose Mourinho on a temporary basis last month insisted that Kane’s his only discussions with his former team-mate have been purely about the match against Aston Villa tomorrow evening in what could potentially be Kane’s last game as a Spurs player at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
It is the second time in which Mason has found himself having to field intense questions from the media after he also faced questions surrounding the European Super League debacle.
Mason told Football.London: “No, not that I’m aware of. All of my conversations with H have been about the game. All these conversations, I am not so sure. I don’t know.
“I speak to Harry pretty much every day. He’s excited along with me about tomorrow. Our only discussions have been about the game tomorrow. We’re looking forward to tomorrow.
“I don’t think anything is awkward. There’s always speculation around the best players, like there’s been speculation around who the next manager will be.”
