Swansea City manager Paul Clement has said that Tottenham striker Harry Kane’s success comes from his graft and determination.

The Tottenham striker has demonstrated his goal scoring talent since breaking into the first team at the North London side, having netted over 20 strikes in each of the past three campaigns.

His impressive record has seen him pick up two successive Premier League golden boots, and he has established himself as a key player for both club and country, with 10 goals in 21 appearances for England.

However, Clement believes that the path that the 24-year-old has taken to establish himself in the starting XI is the reason behind the striker’s achievements.

He told the London Evening Standard: “I like Kane’s story, about how he has had to graft hard to get to where he is.

“He has had to go out on loan and work for the opportunity of where he is now.

“He is reaping the rewards for all that effort he has put in now and from my understanding he continues to do so every day in training.”

Kane, a graduate of the youth system at Tottenham, spent time on loan at Leyton Orient and Millwall before making his debut for the club in 2012.

However he had further loan spells at Norwich City and Leicester City before returning to establish himself in the first team squad during the 2013/14 season, scoring just four goals in 19 appearances across all competitions.

Despite his fine form during the last campaign, where he notched up 29 Premier League goals, Kane has suffered a slow start to this season, with just two top flight strikes in the club’s opening five games.

In other Tottenham news, a journalist has hinted at which youngster will play against Barnsley on Tuesday.
