Tottenham: Spurs confident about Harry Kane signing new contract
Tottenham Hotspur are now confident about Harry Kane signing a new contract, regardless of whether Antonio Conte leaves, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Kane’s future in doubt?
Kane has expressed his desire to leave Tottenham before, and he may get his opportunity to do so this summer, should he choose not to extend his contract beyond the summer of 2024.
A recent report indicated that the Englishman is ‘extremely full of doubts’ about his future and that followed an opposite claim that a new deal was entirely possible, so this is a saga that seems to be chopping and changing with the wind.
However, there is now growing confidence from within the club that he will pen a new deal.
The Latest: Boost for Spurs
According to a report from Football Insider, Spurs are now confident that the 29-year-old is willing to sign a new contract, and it’s been revealed his future is not tied to Conte’s.
It was previously thought that the Italian signing a new deal would be key in the striker doing the same, so this news comes as a real boost for Tottenham.
The Verdict: Kane must stay
It is no secret just how important the England captain has been for the Lilywhites for many years now, recently being hailed by Gary Lineker for the ‘incredible achievement’ of becoming the club’s all-time top scorer.
The forward is enjoying yet another prolific season in front of goal, recording 17 goals in the Premier League, the second-highest total in the top flight, keeping Spurs in contention for a top-four finish.
Achieving Champions League football could be vital in keeping Kane, given that he has expressed his desire to compete for team trophies, rather than individual awards, and the focus should now be on finishing the season as strong as possible, in order to tempt him into extending his stay.
