Heskey: £200million-rated Kane could leave Tottenham on this one condition
By Russell Edge
Former Liverpool and England striker Emile Heskey has claimed that Tottenham’s Harry Kane could leave the club if they do not start picking up some silverware.
The 24-year-old has established himself as one of the world’s most feared strikers, with over 20 league goals in each of his last three campaigns and two successive Premier League golden boot awards to his name.
This season has seen him continue his red hot form in front of goal, with 13 goals in 14 games across all competitions, including eight league strikes which leaves him joint leader of the top scorers’ table with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.
Ahead of England’s international friendlies against Brazil and Germany, which Kane will miss as a result of injury, former Red Heskey says he values the Spurs star in the region of £200million and insists he is among the world’s best strikers.
However, while he says that Kane appears to be happy with his life at Tottenham, a lack of silverware may cause the striker to consider moving elsewhere, should the opportunity arise.

Speaking to sportingbet on their website, Heskey said: “Harry Kane could even break the £200m mark if he continues in this form because Tottenham will fight tooth and nail to keep him.
“You have to put Kane in the top 5 strikers in the world. You’ve got Lewandowski, Suarez and Lukaku, but not many other out and out strikers who score the numbers that Kane does.
“I don’t see anything that makes me think Harry Kane wants to leave Tottenham.
“The only thing that could motivate him to leave Tottenham is if the club don’t start winning trophies. Every player wants to win trophies.”
Despite his goal scoring exploits Kane is yet to pick up an honour with Spurs, with the club’s last trophy coming back in 2008 when they picked up the League Cup for the fourth time in their history.
