Tottenham great Glenn Hoddle has advised reigning PFA Young Player of the Year Harry Kane to remain at the north London club in a post on KICCA.

Hoddle, who played as a midfielder for England before going on to manage them between 1996 and 1999 said that Kane had yet to prove to his club and country that he was "the real deal".

"My opinion is that, a bit like Raheem Sterling at Liverpool, Tottenham is the best place for [Kane]. He feels comfortable, he knows he’s going to be playing," said Hoddle.

Pressure to play

Despite having played for and managed Chelsea, Hoddle claimed that it would not be a good idea for Kane to follow in his footsteps and join the Stamford Bridge club.

"If he goes to a [club like] Manchester United or Chelsea, he might not be playing as much as he wants to. For the next two years, Harry Kane needs to be playing football in the way he has for the last year injury free. [Only then will he] progress to be the player we all think," claimed Hoddle, who is now a BT Sport pundit.

Seemingly happy

Kane scored 21 goals in 34 Premier League appearances last season and was described by Chelsea captain John Terry as "the best striker I played against last year" in the title-winning centre-back's interview with talkSPORT.

However, there has been no suggestion of the striker wanting a move away from White Hart Lane; while his England colleague Sterling has attracted publicity by reportedly seeking a move away from Liverpool.

Having previously advised Sterling not to switch clubs on The Clare Balding Show, Hoddle will be hoping that although the transfer window is officially open, the Liverpool winger and Kane follow his judgment.
