Robinson: This is how Levy will react to Kane no-show at Tottenham
Tottenham will not change their stance on selling Harry Kane as a result of the player’s actions this week.
That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about how chairman Daniel Levy will likely react to the 27-year-old’s failure to report back on time.
Kane was expected back at Spurs this week but failed to show up for training on Monday or Tuesday.
It comes after Manchester City had a £100million bid rejected for the England captain earlier in the window, with Spurs valuing Kane at more than £120million.
According to Sky Sports‘ Paul Gilmour, club chiefs are ‘disappointed’ in Kane and will fine him as a result of his actions.
Robinson, who knows Levy from his time at Tottenham between 2004 and 2008, insisted Kane’s actions will have no bearing on the club’s stance.

“Knowing Daniel and what a clever, shrewd business man that he is, this deal will not get done unless he is 100 per cent happy with it, regardless of whether Harry Kane turns up for training or not,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“Daniel, as he has always done, will have the best interests of the club at heart.
“It doesn’t matter what Kane does between now and the end of the window, the transfer will only get done if it is seen as right for Tottenham.
“Harry Kane will know this though so it makes you wonder even more as to why he has acted in such a way this week.”
