Former Tottenham Hotspur striker, Teddy Sheringham has claimed that he doesn’t think this summer has to be the end of the road for Harry Kane in North London.

Reports have claimed that Harry Kane has told Tottenham that he wants to leave this summer, with both Man United and Man City apparently interested.

Sheringham himself spent two spells at Spurs between 1992-1997 and 2001-2003, playing 256 games, scoring 109 goals and assisting another 16 (TransferMarkt).

However, it was with Manchester United that Sheringham won his three Premier League titles, perhaps proving that he was correct in his decision to leave North London.

The Spurs legend has compared his situation back in the 90s to Harry Kane’s now, claiming that he didn’t think Tottenham were going in the right direction in his day. However, he added that he doesn’t think that is necessarily the case today.

Sheringham argued that Spurs will still be optimistic next season but Kane’s decision may come down to which manager Daniel Levy and co bring in to replace Jose Mourinho.

He said (Sky Sports – as relayed by Manchester Evening News): “He’s trying to tell people that he wants to play at the top level.

“It’s a little bit similar to where I was at Tottenham.

“I felt the club weren’t going in the right direction which is why I said I wanted to leave but I’m not so sure about that at the moment.

“You can tell by the managers that Daniel Levy is trying to bring in to Tottenham that they’re still optimistic and they’re trying to reach for the stars.

“I don’t think it is the end of the road for Harry and Tottenham right this minute but it will depend on which manager comes in and at the end of the day he has got a three-year contract left still as well.

“If they don’t want to let him go unless he’s had assurances from Daviel Levy in previous summers then he might be there for next season.”
