Since his breakthrough season in 2014/15, Harry Kane's career has reached new heights that had appeared only a dream, until Mauricio Pochettino was appointed Tottenham boss in 2014.

The 23-year-old has been the north Londoner's star man for the past two seasons, while also earning himself international recognition with England and making Roy Hodgson's Euro 2016 squad this summer.

But, although the tournament in France was one to forget for the Three Lions, and the fact that the England striker has yet to score for Spurs this season, Kane has returned for the start of the new campaign as confident and ambitious as ever.

With 25 goals earning him the Premier League top scorer gong last season, that is enough to attract the interest from Europe's biggest clubs, however, the young striker has expressed his content at White Hart Line, with both his head and his heart firmly committed to the club who competed for league title for most of last season.

"I'd love to stay here. The club is in great shape at the moment, and we're going forward as a club, and that's important." Kane told Sky Sports.

"As long as there's a vision with the club, and we're not stale, we're going forward as a club. At the moment, we're an excited group of young players with a great manager, great training ground and a new stadium coming too."

Kane did get a run of games for Spurs under Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood, but it has been under the guidance of Pochettino that the young Englishman has thrived.

After stating his satisfaction with the direction in which the club is heading, Kane admitted: "I'd love to stay here for the rest of my career. We'll just have to see what happens."

It was a statement that quickly got Tottenham fans excited, considering their previous star man, Gareth Bale, was snapped up for a then world-record fee in 2013 by Real Madrid. And their only hope now is that the 23-year-old sticks to his word, and they can keep ahold of a player who looks set to be one of the league's top strikers over the coming years.

However, it is no given that Spurs will be able to keep ahold of their academy graduate, if they fail to progress as a team, after falling short of Leicester in the title race, during the final few weeks of last season.

Fight for title

Instead, Kane wants to go further than last campaign and fight amongst the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, for the title.

"Like I say we want to improve on last year, we want to get better. We're not scared of anyone, not scared of any players or managers." Kane added.

"We're confident in our ability. We're there to be right at the top and fight for the title again.

Great signings

"Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club. The gaffer doesn't feel like we needed that. He was happy with his squad.

"He added a couple of great signings, and we're happy. We've been getting better every year, but for us it's just about staying focused.

"There's a lot of talk about the Uniteds, the Citys, the Chelseas, the new managers, new players, and we're happy for people to talk about them, we'll just do what we do each week."
