Tottenham striker Harry Kane admits he cannot wait to play Champions League football in their new stadium as the club look to kick on next season.

The England international was the match winner on Wednesday as his 28th goal of the season ensured Spurs will finish in the top four.

A 1-0 win was enough to overcome Newcastle United and Mauricio Pochettino’s troops will be playing in Europe for the third consecutive campaign.

Their qualification should be enough to keep the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen and Kane and the 24-year-old admits it has given everyone at the club a lift.

“You never know in football. In transfer windows you can never put your finger on it,” he said.

“But it is a big attraction, a massive new stadium, a great team. The next step is winning stuff but this is a big year for us, hopefully we can have a massive year next year and win some trophies.

“[Champions League] is the big attraction, it is what everyone wants, especially the top players around the world. It’s massive.

“It’s been a tough year with Wembley. It’s not easy when teams come here. It’s a big game for them, big stadium for them.

“For us it is important with the new stadium. You want to be playing Champions League football and I can’t wait for those Champions League nights at the new home.”

Spurs are 1.30 to win this weekend against Leicester, with the draw 5.50, while Leicester are huge outsiders at 8.00.
