Jermaine Jenas has given his opinion on how some players look to force a move away from their current club in order to get the transfer which they desire.

The former Spurs midfielder claimed it is usually the last resort for a player and is not a pretty sight when it happens having seen players do it during his career.

Jenas recalled an incident during his time at Tottenham where a team-mate who wanted to leave resorted to intentionally picking the ball up with his hands every time he received the ball in training and threw it away to disrupt the sessions and also refused to interact with other players before eventually being sold.

The 38-year-old is unsure whether Kane is the sort of personality to resort to such measures and gave another example of Luka Modric who was furious to be denied the opportunity to join Chelsea and instead decided to show his professionalism by working hard in training and eventually got his move to Real Madrid the following year.
