Carlton Palmer has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that Harry Kane should honour his contract at Tottenham amid reports that he missed training on Monday morning.
Following a three-week break since England’s defeat to Italy in the Euro’s final, the Three Lions captain was expected to report back to Spurs’ Hotspur Way training base for the rest of pre-season.
Should Tottenham sell Winks?
Like Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso, who won the Copa America with Argentina, Kane had been given extra time off to rest himself ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League opener against Man City on Sunday week.
However, according to Sky Sports News, Kane decided against showing up to training, which would suggest that he’s trying to force his way out of the club this summer and join the champions.
Kane currently has three years remaining on the six-year contract he signed back in 2018, but has already told Tottenham he wants to leave, with City, Manchester United and Chelsea all interested in his services.
And Palmer told The Transfer Tavern that he’d be disappointed in Kane’s actions should the rumours of him missing training turn out to be true:
“Well, this is just a rumour that he’s not reported for training. It’s not fact, yet. I don’t know how that’s going to force the issue on how to get the move.
“I don’t believe in players doing that, you should honour your contract. Just because another club makes an offer, that doesn’t give you the right to go on strike or force the move.
“I’d be very disappointed for the captain of England and a leading motor of the Premier League for him to be doing that. It creates a problem for Spurs.”
