He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “A lot will depend on where we are in four weeks time in terms of the return to full capacity stadiums.
“If the noises for the government are positive, Spurs will have the benefit of the stadium which generates more revenue than any other in the country.
“That would help to alleviate any necessity to sell a player of Kane’s stature. in order to fund recruitment.
“It won’t influence that particular deal directly but it might have more of an influence in terms of recruitment in the same way that it will for every club in the Premier League.”
