Tottenham respond after report claims devastating Harry Kane news
Tottenham have insisted their focus remains on the Premier League run-in despite a fresh report on Monday that Harry Kane has told the club that he wants to leave.
It’s been claimed by Sky Sports that the England captain, unhappy with Spurs’ lack of progress, has informed the north London outfit he wants to depart this summer. He also wants his destination decided before the European Championship, which gets underway on June 11.
Kane is contracted to Tottenham for another three years, with Daniel Levy placing a bumper price tag on their talisman.
Spurs were tight-lipped on Monday evening as they remained focused on their final two league games, with Europa League qualification still on the cards.
A club spokesman said: “We won’t be commenting – our focus is on finishing the season as strongly as possible. That’s what everyone should be focused on.”
Premier League champions Manchester City, rivals Manchester United and Champions League finalists Chelsea have been linked with a move for Kane, who has scored 32 goals in all competitions this term.
He is under contract until 2024, however, and it would take a sizeable fee for Spurs to even consider letting him leave.

Levy to make it tough for Kane suitors
Levy also remains a tough negotiator, so any transfer talks are likely to be long and drawn out.
Kane had said in an interview at the end of March that it would be “hard” to talk about his future and that his focus was on the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros.
But he has also regularly spoken about his desire to win trophies and that is something that has not yet materialised at Tottenham.
During Kane’s time in Spurs’ first team, they have had two Premier League title challenges fall away, lost in the Champions League final and been beaten in two League Cup finals, including this season’s.
Spurs are also currently without a manager following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal last month, and the new boss faces a huge rebuilding job in the summer.
