England boss Gareth Southgate has sent a Harry Kane transfer warning to Chelsea.
According to Southgate, Kane will not leave Tottenham while he is on international duty with England this summer.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all keen on signing the England captain this summer, with Kane keen on leaving Tottenham.
Kane wanted a deal to be completed before the European Championships begin but with England’s first game against Croatia on June 13, that looks unlikely.
“What’s going on at his club is a matter for him and Tottenham,” Southgate said at his press conference on Tuesday.
“He’s obviously made some statements in the last few days, so in many respects that’s out of the way now. I’m talking across the board here…
“I think it’s very unlikely that transfer deals will be done while we’re away.
“I think that’s different when we have our camps in September – very often we’re on that deadline moment and every now and then we’ve had to help facilitate a medical or a meeting between a player and a manager.
“I am very realistic about those things. We’re not going to stop phones ringing.
“We can’t control conversations that are going on in private, but I wouldn’t expect… I think most deals are done at the end of tournaments or they are done in the first week at the end of the season.
“I would expect anything with our players to be after the tournament.”
