Kane signs on as Tottenham Hotspur close on Alli

It could be a busy transfer deadline day for Tottenham Hotspur, who have secured Harry Kane on a new contract and are closing on Dele Alli.

21-year-old Kane has been one of the stars of the current footballing season, having scored 20 goals in 33 competitive matches for the capital club. Not only has this cemented his place as the darling of the White Hart Lane faithful, it has also sparked strong suggestions that he will be called into the full England squad for the remainder of their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

The striker has now been rewarded with a new contract which is set to keep him at Tottenham until the end of the 2019/20 season, with some reports suggesting his wage is now set at a basic £30,000-per-week. This news is unlikely to be surpassed for Spurs fans on this deadline day, although there could well be some movement both in and out of the club before the window shuts.

It is understood that Tottenham are closing on a deal for Alli, who is regarded as one of the best young talents outside of the Premier League. The 18-year-old midfielder, who has also been linked with Aston Villa, Liverpool and Newcastle United, is currently plying his trade with MK Dons, but Mauricio Pochettino hopes to land him for £5million before loaning him back to the League One side.

Whilst the Argentine coach also remains interested in Winston Reid, any deal for the New Zealand international is likely to be postponed until the summer. By that time the defender will be a free agent upon the expiry of his contract at West Ham United, although this status poses a risk for Spurs as the likes of archrivals Arsenal have also been linked with the player in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are willing to let Emmanuel Adebayor leave the club either on loan or on a permanent basis, with Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City said to be interested. Aaron Lennon could also be on the way out with Hull City and Everton keen, and Pochettino could ask for Belgian international Kevin Mirallas in exchange if his player opts for Goodison Park.
