Jermaine Jenas explains he has spotted a sign why Harry Kane will leave Tottenham
Jermaine Jenas has told BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight that he thinks Harry Kane’s comments in the media over the past few weeks is a sign that he is desperate to leave Tottenham Hotspur – but questioned if he actually will.
Kane, 27, took his tally to 23 goals in the Premier League on Sunday – and 14 assists – which sees the England skipper end the campaign leading the rankings for both. He was handed both awards after a 4-2 win at Leicester on Sunday.
This month, Kane has been very vocal in the media about his future – most-recently speaking to Gary Neville on The Overlap’s YouTube channel. Jenas thinks his comments mean it is a sign he wants to leave the club this summer.
But ex-Spurs midfielder Jenas also questioned whether Kane has what it takes to push through an exit from Tottenham – and if Daniel Levy will sell him. Unless the price tag is met, Jenas does not see Kane leaving Spurs.
“Kane is talking more now than he has ever spoken in his while career. That tells me he wants to leave the football club, there’s no doubt about that. The question is, is he going to be allowed to leave. That is the issue,” Jenas said.
“I’m not sure that Kane has got it in him, to get out of Spurs. In a horrible way. We’ve seen players demand a move, refuse to train, these things work – Kane won’t do that. I don’t encourage that. If the number comes in, he will go.”
TBR’s view – Jenas has it bang on
It is becoming quite clear that Kane wants to leave Tottenham – but will not leave Spurs unless Tottenham receive a bid of £150million, or that Spurs get a big cash fee and a player or two included in a deal, possibly a replacement.
Jenas is right, Spurs will sell Kane if Levy gets what he wants. Will he get what he wants? In this climate? It looks unlikely. But Jenas is also right that Kane is not capable of the dirty tactics needed to get a move, behind the scenes.
