Darren Ambrose believes that Newcastle United is a realistic destination for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The Lowdown: Changing situation
As we know, the 28-year-old wanted to leave Spurs during the summer transfer window (Sky Sports) but despite interest from Manchester City, he ended up staying in north London.
The Latest: Ambrose makes Kane claim
Speaking to talkSPORT (via Shields Gazette), Ambrose believes that Spurs is now a realistic destination for Kane. He said:
“Say Daniel Levy puts on another ridiculous fee that no-one else is going to pay. And Newcastle say, ‘there is £150 million, we will match that.
“Who has more chance of winning a trophy? Tottenham or Newcastle now? Everyone is going to say (Newcastle) because they have got a project. They have got ambition. So, that could be realistic.”
The Verdict: Big players
The arrival of the consortium, fronted by Amanda Staveley, at St James’ Park is likely to change the future of Premier League football. Like Chelsea and Manchester City, the Magpies now have the funds to try and compete at the top of the game in this country.
Would Kane join Newcastle?
As one of the best strikers not only in England but throughout the world, Kane is a hot commodity who only a few clubs can afford. Newcastle now belong to that group, so just as Ambrose says, they are a realistic destination for Kane, and Daniel Levy should be wary of any interest from the Tyneside club.
In other news, Spurs are interested in this controversial midfielder.
