Teddy Sheringham has predicted based on Harry Kane’s body language that the striker is settled at Tottenham and will not be leaving the club this summer.

Spurs held firm amidst Manchester City’s attempts to snap up Kane 12 months ago but Pep Guardiola’s men appear unlikely to reignite their interest in the England captain this summer following their capture of Erling Haaland.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold reported last month that, despite the striker having just two years left to run on his contract, Tottenham continue to maintain that he is not for sale this summer.

In an interview with The Evening Standard this week, Kane hinted that he might be ready to commit his future to Spurs if Antonio Conte stays at the club, admitting that he is enjoying working with the Italian.

Sheringham has now argued that the 28-year-old appears a lot more settled at Spurs now than he did a year ago.

When asked if he expects Kane to stay at N17, former Tottenham striker told The Sun: “I do, I do now, yeah. Last summer was very different to this summer. And I think things have changed at Tottenham. His body language has changed.

“Whether he has got accustomed to the whole situation or not, I don’t know. But looking at his body language and his demeanour now, I do think he will be staying at Tottenham.”

Sheringham also remarked that the Tottenham striker will not want to take any risks ahead of the World Cup in November.

He added: “Yeah, of course [it’s important to be settled] If he had gone into a World Cup year the way he played at the start of the season there would be a lot of questions asked.

“I think he’s over that little part of his career – and it’s understandable as well. There was a lot of speculation and talk about it week in and week out about ‘is he going or is he not’. I think he has fully proven that he’s a top, top professional.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I believe Kane will want to stick around to see what Conte can build at Spurs. That is why the Spurs hierarchy needs to back the Italian this summer. If we are challenging for major honours next season under Conte, the striker can perhaps be convinced to put pen to paper on a new contract.
