Kevin Phillips is adamant Harry Kane will leave Tottenham this summer after what he saw in the aftermath of Wednesday’s loss to Aston Villa.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the 2000 European Golden Shoe winner claimed it is a case of “when and where” and not if regarding the 27-year-old’s Spurs future.
Sky Sports showed an emotional Kane clapping fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium shortly after Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to Villa.
It may have been the last time the England captain plays there as a Spurs player after it was revealed he is “hell bent” on leaving the London club this summer.
Football Insider understands Chelsea have made Kane their top target ahead of the next transfer window and are willing to spend big to secure a deal.
When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Kane’s future, Phillips said:
“I think it is time for him to move on.
“He looked as if he had tears in his eyes when he went round the pitch at the end of the Villa game. It says to me that it is going to happen. It is only a case of when and where now.
“There is a lot of discontent at Tottenham at the moment. A lot of uncertainty. They haven’t got a manager, the supporters are calling for Levy out so it is not all well. There could be big change at the club from top to bottom this summer.
“It could be a very challenging summer for Spurs if they do not get things sorted out quickly. It is difficult times at Tottenham right now.”
