Tottenham goalscoring sensation Harry Kane has signed a new six-year deal at the club, it was revealed on Thursday morning.
The new contract, which will run until 2022, comes as a reward for Kane’s tremendous form in front of goal for Spurs in recent seasons.
The 23-year-old, who is set for a major hike on his reported £60,000 per week wages, has scored five goals in eight games for the club this season.
Tottenham’s official Twitter account revealed that Kane has committed his long-term future to his boyhood club.

Kane had been attracting interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United, but Jose Mourinho’s hopes of signing the England international have been quashed by his renewed commitment to White Hart Lane.
Since his breakthrough season two years ago, the striker has become Tottenham’s most-prized asset, helping his side to Champions League qualification last term with 25 league goals – the most in the division.
He has also established himself as England’s leading frontman, and has scored five goals from 17 international appearances since making his senior debut in March 2015.
The news come in a week where the performances of some of Tottenham’s regular faces have come under scrutiny – including Kane’s England team-mate Eric Dier, and summer signing Moussa Sissoko.
However, Kane’s new bumper deal is set to bring positive cheer around the club, and manager Mauricio Pochettino will be thrilled to have tied his best player down for the long-term.
