Harry Kane’s future is up for debate once again after Tottenham blew a big chance to break into the top four of the Premier League on Sunday – and both Jamie O’Hara and Michel Vorm disagreed when asked where he will be in September.
Kane, 27, took his tally to 29 goals on Sunday as he netted an equaliser and then put Tottenham ahead during the club’s 2-2 draw with struggling Newcastle United. He tapped home for his first, before lashing an effort past Martin Dubravka.
But despite Sunday’s performance, and his excellent form this season which has seen the England skipper have a hand in 45 goals – Spurs remain in fifth. Had they won against Newcastle, they would have climbed into fourth place.
It is not the first time they have surrendered leads – doing the same against Newcastle in the reverse fixture, against West Ham, Liverpool and other clubs. Asked where they see Kane at the end of the summer window, O’Hara and Vorm disagreed.
Vorm told Stadium Astro: “My prediction is that if he is going to cost £150million, then he’s not going anywhere. If you ask me.”
O’Hara disagreed: “I think he’s going to leave Spurs this summer. I think it will be the last day of the transfer window, we know how Daniel Levy works. He will wait and wait to get the most money he can. I can’t see Kane being at Spurs next season.”
TBR’s view – Kane needs to put his career first, surely?
If Kane wants to win silverware, which he surely does, then he needs to finally put aside his affection for Tottenham and join a club with greater title credentials. Spurs are a top side, but they do not have the winning mentality required to win a title.
If this season has not proven that – the loss to Dinamo Zagreb, Sunday’s draw against Newcastle – then he needs to realise soon. He needs to go before it is too late in his career and he runs out of time when it comes to joining the likes of Manchester City.
