Having spent the past decade playing for Tottenham, Harry Kane is yet to win a single trophy.

Now 27, Kane has delivered 220 goals in 358 appearances for his boyhood club, which is world-class at any standard.

Kane shocked the football world when he hinted that he’s open to leaving Spurs at the end of the season, as he’s keen on winning titles before the end of his career.

Speaking on The Overlap with Gary Neville, Kane said: “There’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club.

“It’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman.

“As players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking. He might want to sell me. He might be thinking, ‘If I could get £100m then why not?’ I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.

“I’m sure that [Levy] will want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career at this moment in time.

“I don’t want to have come to the end of my career and have any regrets. I want to be the best that I can be.

“I’ve said before, I’d never say that I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career [and] I’d never say that I would leave Spurs.”

Meanwhile, former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has advised Kane to do what makes him happy as regarding a move away from Tottenham.

In an interview with James Corden for The Sun, Mourinho was asked where he thinks Kane should be playing next season and he replied: “I think he has to play where he is happy. And I think he is happy in England. He is a very Premier League guy.

Mourinho also described Kane as “one of the top strikers in the world”.
