Harry Kane believes that the four loan spells he had earlier on in his Tottenham Hotspur career have helped to mould him into the player he is today.

Jermaine Jenas, who was a part of Tottenham’s midfield while Kane was coming through the ranks admitted that he never expected the striker to make it to the very top (BBC).

Kane spent time on loan at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester at the start of his career.

The forward revealed that he feared that he would not be able to make it at Tottenham after he struggled to even be named in Leicester’s match day squad in the Championship.

Kane admitted that Andre Villas-Boas, who was in the White Hart Lane hot seat at the time had plans to send him back out on loan for a further spell but told the Portuguese that he wanted to remain at Spurs and fight for a place in his squad which proved to be a pivotal decision in his career.

Following Villas-Boas’ departure, Kane was given further opportunities under Tim Sherwood and continued his progress under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino.
