Harry Kane plays down talks of contract renewal at Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has watered down talks of him signing a new contract with the club.

Kane was a subject of interest from Manchester City in the summer of 2021 and despite the Englishman expressing his desire to leave, a move to the Etihad Stadium failed to materialise as Tottenham turned down several bids from the reigning English champions.

With 18 months left on his current deal, Kane’s future is a subject of discussion once again with Manchester United and Bayern Munich believed to be keen on landing him.

While Kane is reportedly open to extending his stay in North London this time around, the 29-year-old has claimed that there is a considerable way to go before any agreement can be reached, although he did also add that talks are expected to take place in due time.

“There’s not been much talk if I’m totally honest,” Kane was quoted saying by The Daily Mail.

“I’m sure there’ll be conversations over the coming months but to be honest I’m just focused on this season and doing my best for the team.

“There’s still a lot to play for, trying to get in the Champions League, we have the FA Cup and the Champions League still to try to win.

“My focus is on that. I know there are going to be rumours, a lot of talk and speculation about my future but I’m just focused on what I can do.”

Courtesy of his winner against Fulham in last night’s London derby, Kane joined Jimmy Greaves at the top of Tottenham’s all-time scoring charts with his 266th strike in all competitions for the Lilywhites.

He will now be aiming to make history on Saturday when Spurs visit Championship side Preston North End in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
