Kane confident of new Tottenham Hotspur contract

Harry Kane is confident he will sign a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur and remain at the club for a long time to come.

The 23-year-old is regarded as one of the best strikers in European football, having now scored 69 goals in 135 appearances for the capital club. This includes a haul of 25 which earned him the Golden Boot last season, and also a late brace on Saturday evening which saw Spurs seal a stunning comeback at home to beat West Ham United 3-2.

Kane, though, is out of contract at the end of next season, and it has been suggested that Tottenham’s strict wage structure could see them lose their star attraction. Manchester United have been linked with the England international, but he has already begun talks over a new deal and is confident he will remain at the club for some time.

“I’m happy at the club,” he said. “A lot of people are going to speculate about contracts but I am happy – you saw me out there (on Saturday). There’s not many better feelings than being at White Hart Lane and scoring in a London derby. So yeah, I am happy at the club and want to be here for a long, long time. We are in talks and I’m sure we will get something sorted.

“I’m not panicking and I’m not demanding anything as I’ve read in the paper. We’re having a conversation and I have no doubts that we will get it sorted. As I say, I want to be here for a long time and I am sure I will be. I am happy here. Hopefully we will have no issues with the contract – we have only just started talking about it.

“I’m fully concentrated on playing for Tottenham and winning for Tottenham and I think there are no doubts after West Ham that my mind is anywhere else. We’ve got a great young team, new training ground, new stadium being built, great young manager. The future is very bright. For us now it’s about winning trophies and competitions – that’s the next step.”
