Kenny warns Tottenham: Kane could eventually be sold for 'peanuts' after Sky latest
Paddy Kenny claims Tottenham should part with Harry Kane this summer so he isn’t sold for peanuts in the future.
The former Leeds United stopper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, warned Daniel Levy against overpricing his prize asset.
This site first broke the news that the England captain wants to quit Tottenham this summer.
Sky Sports now claim the striker has asked to leave with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea registering their interest.
Kane, 27, scored 23 goals and picked up 14 assists during the recently concluded Premier League season, more than any other player.
He is under contract until the summer of 2024 after signing a new deal in 2018.

Kenny insists some clubs can still afford Kane but warned he could attempt to run down his contract and lose value over time.
“Listen, it’s been tough over the pandemic,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“But I’m sure there are Man United, Chelsea and Man City whose owners will dig deep into their pockets.
“If Kane becomes available, it depends how much, but what a signing he’d be for someone.
“It’s one of them, they might ask for stupid money. If they do overprice him, another season down the lines his value is going to fall.
“Down the lines when his contract runs down, he’s gonna be worth peanuts compared to what he is now.”
Kane is Tottenham’s second-highest goalscorer and has a realistic chance of breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 260 goals.
He will captain the England team at this summer’s Euros ahead of potentially joining a new side.
