In this instalment of our TT Roundup, Football Transfer Tavern have gathered three of the biggest stories to have involved Tottenham recently and have provided our thoughts on the reports published.
Kane could ‘leave’ Spurs
There are fears among some at Tottenham Hotspur that Harry Kane could force a move from the club. According to The Times, some people within the north London outfit that the England international is ‘losing patience’ with the club and could look for a move away.
The reports come off the back of a 7-2 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday evening for Spurs.
Any move away from Kane would leave the club incredibly short in attack. The Englishman is already the only out-and-out striker at the club and has scored 171 goals in 262 games for the side, showing his potency in front of goal.
Losing Kane would leave a giant hole that would certainly cost a fortune to fill considering the current nature of the transfer market (via Medium.com), given his importance to the side and sheer number of goals.
Jack Clarke loan spell to end early
Tottenham Hotspur could end summer signing Jack Clarke’s loan spell at Leeds United early after his lack of playing time this season (The Sun via Twitter).
A return to north London doesn’t seem to be on the cards, with the player not thought to be a part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for the season. It is also thought Clarke wants to get more playing time himself.
The 18-year-old joined the north London club for £10m in the summer transfer window, after making 22 appearances in the Championship last season (via BBC).
A loan move at another club, where the 18-year-old will actually feature, is a smart move from Spurs. Clarke clearly isn’t seeing much action at Leeds United this season, after making just two appearances in the Carabao Cup and no league appearances this campaign (via Transfermarkt).
Pochettino gets support from Kane
The England international has given his full support to under-fire manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to Football Insider.
Football Insider claimed that the star’s support will be key to the Argentine’s future at the club after the start to the season was surveyed.
A Spurs source told Football Insider that Kane has a close relationship with the manager, and he believes Pochettino can turn around the club’s form
It seems that Kane and Pochettino share a very cosy relationship and, if so, keeping Kane could be a possibility if Pochettino is retained by the club rather than sacked.
In any case, the former Argentina international has worked wonders at the club, helping them reach their first-ever Champions League final. He should be allowed time to turn around the team’s form rather than face the sack.
Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?
