'It Comes Down To Promises Kane's Been Given By Spurs' - Exclusive: Pundit in intriguing claim
Harry Kane staying at Tottenham for his entire career is not out of the question, says Michael Brown.
The former Spurs midfielder made his comments to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge after the Daily Mail among other sources reported that the England captain had entered unofficial talks over a new contract.
Kane is Spurs’ second-highest earner after on-loan Gareth Bale, taking home £200,000 a week.
However, it is likely that he could get a big increase on that if he were to pursue a move elsewhere, perhaps Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain, with whom the 27-year-old has recently been linked.
But Brown explains that, while Kane is ambitious, he is likely to remain happy in North London so long as the club is competing for silverware.
“It comes down to what promises Harry Kane has been given when he signed the last contract,” he told Football Insider.

“We all know that if Spurs don’t win the league or aren’t challenging to win the league at some point then Harry Kane may want to look somewhere else.
“But he loves it as Spurs he loves the club. He’s well respected, he’s top of the shop.
“So he might be delighted to stay there for the rest of his career. I wouldn’t rule that out.”
Kane has been with Spurs since 2004, graduating to the first-team in 2009 before being sent out on loan to Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester City.
He recently passed the 200 goal mark for Spurs and has played 312 times for the club in total.
