Former West Ham forward Frank McAvennie has claimed that handing Harry Kane a new contract is the best signing Tottenham Hotspur could make.
Kane is currently in the form of his life and is on course to have the best season of his career.
The striker’s form has seemingly attracted attention from several clubs, with the likes of Manchester City (Christian Falk) and Real Madrid (Don Balon) said to be eyeing summer moves for the England captain.
However, reports have claimed that Tottenham are confident that the 27-year-old remains fully committed to the club despite the recent speculation about his future (Eurosport).
Kane’s current contract has three and a half years left to run and The Athletic reportedly recently that the North Londoners will have talks over extending his stay at the club at the end of the season.
Reacting to those reports, McAvennise insisted that there is no reason for Kane to leave Spurs, particularly given how he is thriving in a new role under Jose Mourinho this season.
The pundit told Football Insider: “I think he would be the best signing they could make in January.
“He is showing everyone a different side of his game now. He looks like he is thriving under Jose Mourinho.
“They have a chance to win a cup now, they’re in the final and if they win that, it will help. Who is to say they will not beat Manchester City?
“Mourinho has got that team all working for each other and you cannot ask for more than that.”

The club will likely look at the contract situations of Son and Lloris as bigger priorities to address since Kane still has three and a half years left on his deal. If we do manage to end our trophy drought this season, I believe Kane will commit his future to the club.
