Pundit says he's gutted for Harry Kane after Erling Haaland announcement
Ally McCoist has told talkSPORT that he is gutted for Harry Kane with a Manchester City move for the Tottenham Hotspur striker likely to be off the table with the Premier League leaders signing Erling Haaland.
City have sent out a huge message on a day Liverpool face a massive game in the Premier League title race. They announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have reached an agreement to sign Haaland for £51 million.
It is a huge coup for Pep Guardiola’s men. But it is also a day that plenty of Spurs fans will welcome as it makes it harder to imagine Kane leaving.
Of course, Kane seemed to be destined for Manchester City last summer. But ultimately, no move took place and the England captain stayed in North London.
Tottenham have made progress under Antonio Conte. But clearly, they have some work to do before Spurs are challenging for the Premier League title again.
With that, McCoist admitted that he is hugely disappointed for Kane as the announcement concerning Haaland loomed. But he did also suggest that he could yet realise his ambitions at Tottenham.
“Gutted for him. I really hope for Spurs and Harry Kane in particular that Conte gets the opportunity to strengthen, I really do. I just think if they support Conte, this is a real opportunity for Spurs as well to close the gap between the top two and themselves,” he told talkSPORT.
“And I think if they give Conte, who I think is top-class, if they get behind him in the market and give him an opportunity to bring two or three in, I’d like to see Harry Kane stay there and certainly win something, I’d love it.”

It is an exciting time to be at Tottenham. They have shown real promise under Conte. And there is a real feeling that they could be on the cusp of something special.
Keeping Conte and Kane is crucial to that. They are amongst the world-class figures currently at Tottenham. Jarrod Bowen described him as an ‘unbelievable‘ striker. And losing either would be a massive blow considering the improvement they have made in recent months.
The good news for Kane is that Conte does not tend to take long to make an impact. It may not be too long before it comes clear whether the Italian is going to be the man to get Tottenham across the line in their quest for trophies.
