Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that striker Harry Kane has signed a new five-and-a-half year contract with the club.
Kane has netted 20 goals for the club in all competitions in his breakthrough season. The 21-year-old came through the club’s academy and is a Spurs fan after growing up in Walthamstow.
The England Under-21 international made his debut for the north London outfit in 2011 in the Europa League, but he made his first appearance in the Premier League last year.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has now put his trust in Kane with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor struggling to find form.
After loan spells at Leyon Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester, Kane seems to have finally made his mark on spurs fans.
Kane has scored eight goals from 10 games so far in his career for the England Under-21’s and he was quick to admit his delight after signing his new deal.
He tweeted: “Very happy to have signed my new contract at Spurs! Excited for the future ahead! Thank you for all your messages! #COYS”
His new deal ends any speculation about his future, with Kane set to stay at White Hart Lane until 2020 at least. Kane, who could make his England debut in 2015, is expected to start in Saturday’s derby clash with Arsenal.
Spurs are 3.20 to win, with the draw priced at 3.40. Arsenal’s 5-0 win over Aston Villa has made them clear favourites and they can be backed at odds of 2.16 with Dafabet.
