Tottenham Hotspur starlet Harry Kane gave another glimpse of his potential in a Spurs XI's 6-3 victory over a Birmingham City XI.
The 18-year-old striker, who scored five goals in 18 appearances for Leyton Orient on loan last term, hit a first half hat-trick against Chris Hughton's side to add to his growing reputation.
Npower Championship clubs have been linked with a loan move for the teenager, but the strikes could serve as another reminder to Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who is thought to be in the market for a player in the position this summer amidst uncertainty over the futures of Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko.
After going behind in the training ground friendly, Kane equalised on 20 minutes with a smart finish after some interplay from David Bentley and John Bostock, who then made it 2-1 to Spurs when slotting home at the far post.
Kane notched his second with a powerful header soon after, and made it 4-1 to Tottenham Hotspur with a calm lob following a Tom Carroll through ball.
Carroll and recent arrival Souleymane Coulibaly would score the other goals for the hosts in the victory, but it's the performance of Kane that's got Spurs fans talking on the club's messageboards.
The youngster's current pre-season goal tally stands at eight goals in six games, and whilst Redknapp is likely to be reluctant to throw the youngster in at the Barclays Premier League deep end, it's form that suggests a Tottenham Hotspur senior debut may not be far away.
