ENGLAND captain Harry Kane says he will be “staying at Tottenham this summer” and is “100% focused on helping the team achieve success”.
Manchester City were keen to sign Kane, who believed he had a gentleman’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy to leave Spurs this summer.
But Levy has refused to enter into negotiations for the striker, 28.
Kane played his first game of the season on Sunday, coming on as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Wolves.
“It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks,” he wrote in a social media post on Wednesday,
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success.”
Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo said it was “fantastic news” to see Kane’s immediate future resolved.
“I think since Harry joined us he has been working so this is what we value. His attitude in training has been excellent,” said the Portuguese.
“It’s finished, Harry is going to be with us.”
Asked whether he was concerned about the word “summer” in Kane’s statement, and if the issue was likely to arise again in the January transfer window, Nuno replied: “I’m not worried at all. It’s day by day.
“He’s an option for tomorrow. This is the only thing and is my only thought, trying to make the best decisions to help the team and Harry is one of the options for tomorrow.”
Tottenham face Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League play-offs on Thursday, looking to overcome a 1-0 away defeat in the first leg last week.
