Campbell slams 'madness' from Levy as real reason for Kane woes at Tottenham
Harry Kane’s struggles at Tottenham this season can be solely attributed to Daniel Levy, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said “the crux of the problem” is Levy breaking a gentleman’s agreement with Kane over the summer.
Kane, 28, was denied a move to Manchester City earlier this year despite two bids in excess of £100million from the Premier League champions.
As revealed by Football Insider (29th April), the England captain was “hell-bent on leaving his boyhood club in search of trophies.
The failed move looks to have affected Kane as he is yet to scored in his six Premier League outings this season.
According to Whoscored, the striker only completed 45.5 per cent of his passes against Arsenal last Sunday – the worst of any player on both sides.

Campbell is adamant Levy is to blame.
“Kane is happy at Tottenham,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs. “I’m sure of it.
“I just think he is the victim of Daniel Levy. All he has known since being a kid is Spurs so that is not the problem.
“The problem is, when people do not keep their promises. The England captain is being kept against his will. That is the problem. Let’s call it like it is. Kane does not have a problem with Spurs as a club. Not a chance.
“The fact of the matter is, Daniel Levy has gone against his word behind the scenes. Harry Kane has been a great servant and thought he was going to be granted his move. That is the crux of the problem. It’s madness.”
