Moussa Sissoko earns £35,000-a-week more than Harry Kane, according to a report.
The Sun claim that the signing from Newcastle was handed a whopping £95,000-a-week deal when he joined in the summer.
It is said that Sissoko’s lucrative package far exceeds that of Spurs talisman Kane, who is in talks with the club about a new contract.
Sissoko has had a difficult opening three months at White Hart Lane since his August arrival.
The France international, who plays in an advanced midfield role, has made nine appearances in all competitions but has yet to score or supply an assist and has just completed a three-match ban for elbowing Harry Arter.
The report states that England striker Kane has agreed to put talks about a new deal on hold as the two parties are at loggerheads.
No date has been set for the talks to resume with chairman Daniel Levy but Spurs supporters will be concerned following Hugo Lloris’ failure to agree fresh terms.
Kane, 23, is one of the hottest properties in European football and is said to be on the wish-list of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.
Last season’s Premier League golden boot winner has repeatedly stressed his commitment to Tottenham but the situation is likely to alert a string of clubs at home and abroad.
The player has recently returned to action after a two-month lay-off with an ankle problem.
Kane, an unused sub in England’s 3-0 win over Scotland on Friday, will not face Spain in Tuesday’s friendly as he has been sent back to Spurs to focus on his fitness ahead of their clash against West Ham on Saturday
