Jamie O’Hara has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur made a blunder by not cashing in on Harry Kane during the summer transfer window.
Kane is said to have pushed to join Manchester City in the summer, with the striker even reportedly not showing up for training on the day he was due back in an effort to force Spurs’ hand into selling him.
The North London club managed to resist the advances from Pep Guardiola’s men and keep hold of their star striker.
However, the 28-year-old has looked a shadow of his old self so far this season, having found the back of the net just once in the Premier League.
O’Hara believes that this summer was the ideal time to let the England captain leave as Spurs are not going to get more money for him in the future.
Take a look below at what the former Tottenham midfielder said about Kane on talkSPORT:
🤔 “Did #THFC miss a trick by not getting rid of him? Because I got to the point where I just wanted him to leave.”
💰 “It’ll be bad for the dressing room & we’ll get the max amount of money for him too!”

In hindsight, it does seem like a mistake from the club to not cash in on Kane. However, few would have expected him to be as poor as he has been so far this season. Additionally, we also do not know if City really offered anything close to the striker’s market valuation in the summer.
