Look at him now: Harry Kane and Leicester City

It’s crazy to think that England’s best striker, Harry Kane, once played at Leicester City.

Leicester City signed a 19-year-old Harry Kane back in February of 2013 on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Foxes were in need of a striker so they turned to a Spurs youngster who didn’t really have much hype surrounding him at all in the earlier stages of his career.

Indeed, Leicester were chasing automatic promotion from the Championship at the time and he made an instant impact as he netted a goal against Blackburn Rovers on his home debut. But, things soon went downhill as he had to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench after a run of disappointing games without scoring.

And, he failed to deliver in the play-offs against Watford as they were beaten 3-2 on aggregate with him failing to find the back of the net. He made just 15 appearances and produced a disappointing two goals.

Of course, times have changed since Kane rocked up at Leicester as they now have Jamie Vardy steering the ship magnificently, but they’ll certainly be gutted they didn’t make an approach to sign him permanently. He could certainly do the job at the King Power Stadium which has fans thinking about what could have been.

Although, it’s safe to say he’s transformed into something special since then as he’s now one of the world’s best strikers and he was even nominated for the Balon d’Or in 2018 & 2017.
