Harry Kane's Spurs contract is better news than a new signing

Published 4 Comments

Harry Kane's scintillating form for Tottenham Hotspur this term has been rewarded as he signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2020. 

The Enfield-born striker, 21, started the season as Spurs' third choice striker behind Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado, who have both struggled in front of goal this season.

However - now in February, Kane is Spurs' first choice striker and top goalscorer. 

Kane's astronomic rise from starlet to Spurs' main man has been nothing short of remarkable, bagging 20 goals - the first homegrown Spurs player to do so since Mark Falco in the 1980s.

To highlight Kane's performances - he has scored more goals (in all competitions) than any other Premier League player, ahead of the likes of Sergio Aguero (19) and Diego Costa (17).

The sky is the limit according to Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, who in an interview with The Guardian said: "If he scores 20, why not 30?".  

At this rate, Kane is well on track to break that 30 goals barrier, with Spurs' season still very much alive with big games in the Europa League, Premier League and a day at Wembley in the Capital One Cup final all coming up.

As Kane's status continues to rise, the interest in the striker is also bound to. However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has made an astute move by securing Kane's services for the next five seasons.

Planning for the future

Regardless of Spurs' other striker issues, they certainly have a player of genuine quality in Kane and more importantly, a player with incredible potential. 

During the January transfer window, Spurs were linked to a host of strikers, especially Burnley's Danny Ings and West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino.

Although neither came in, Spurs have made a clever move in securing the long-term services of Kane without bringing in a player that will stump his development or an unnecessary panic buy to support Kane.

Whilst an injury to Kane could be problematic to say the least, in terms of the future, this is the best news any Spurs fan could have wanted, with England's biggest striker prodigy pledging his long-term future to the club.
