Harry Kane is yet to play one minute of Barclays Premier League football, but Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is convinced that the 19-year-old striker is good enough to make an impact on the top flight this year.

The 34-year-old has been impressed with Kane's performances in pre-season and is keen for the Chingford teenager to play a significant part in the league this term.

Kane, who came through Tottenham's academy, was a big hit on loan at Millwall last year, scoring nine goals including four in his last six matches.

Villas-Boas thinks the teenager will be desperate to make an impact this season, and he said: "Tottenham had three strikers of great dimension last year - (Emmanuel) Adebayor, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko.

"Normally in my teams I like to promote the third one as a young striker who is competing for that place a bit more aggressively."
