Alan Hutton has claimed Harry Kane missing training will have “annoyed” some of his Tottenham teammates.

The former Spurs defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed players would understand the striker’s stance but may still be frustrated by his conduct.

As reported by Sky Sports (August 3rd), Kane has failed to report to training despite being scheduled to return on Monday.

The striker’s absence comes as speculation builds over his future in north London.

Asked how Kane’s teammates would react in comparison to fans, Hutton told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “I think you can understand both sides.

“When it’s a club you’ve supported since being a small child and you’re a season ticket holder, that’s all you see. You see the top player wanting to leave your club and you can’t understand why.

“If you’re a player at that club, you do understand. He has given everything for the club. He has scored so many goals that have kept them in the top half of the table.

“If he wasn’t there who knows where Tottenham would have ended up. So, as a player, you understand he has given his all and he wants to play at the highest level possible. Every player does.

“Every single player out there wants to play Champions League. They want to play for the biggest team possible, want to win the Premier League. That’s what they want to do, and he’s no different.

“As a player, as a teammate, I would understand the decision. It’s not ideal him not turning up.

That’s maybe the one thing that could annoy a few boys within the team, but they will understand the situation.”
