Levy could sanction January Kane transfer after twist at 'toxic' Tottenham - pundit

Frank McAvennie claims Harry Kane could leave Tottenham in January with his relationship with the club now “toxic”.

The former West Ham hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claims this summer’s transfer saga is haunting the club and his wretched Premier League form is proof it has not been resolved.

Kane failed to leave Tottenham this summer despite believing he had a gentleman’s agreement with Daniel Levy.

Manchester City were the only club to bid for the England captain but Levy held firm and blocked the move.

In a surprise twist, Kane has struggled in the Premier League this season, failing to score.

He has, however, scored in the EFL Cup and Europa Conference League.

McAvennie claims Tottenham’s poor league form is a result of the summer saga and told Levy to sell Kane so Nuno can have more money to spend in January.

“Everything at Tottenham comes down to Kane,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“This question about Kane leaving will hang over them for years. It’s going to be worse when they are losing and he’s not scoring.

“It’s haunting them. If they don’t do well and they fall down the table, questions will be asked.

“It could force Levy’s hand in January. Nuno needs that money to reinvest in the squad.

“They have no midfield. Kane is at the centre of all of this. I can see a January transfer for him, I really can.

“I think it’s toxic now. The relationship, the motivation, it’s not there.

“I said he needed to leave in the summer and I stand by that. It’s for the best,”
