Kenny says Kane is a 'massive' problem at Tottenham amid BBC update

The first thing Paulo Fonseca must do if appointed Tottenham boss is resolve the situation surrounding Harry Kane.

That is according to ex-Premier League shot-stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after BBC Sport reported on 15th June that the ex-Roma boss is close to being confirmed as Spurs’ new manager.

It was reveald by this site in April that Kane, whose Spurs contract expires in 2024, has told friends he is eager to quit the club this summer.

Asked about the 28-year-old’s future in North London, chairman Daniel Levy told Tottenham TV on 13th June that he would “do whatever is right for the club.”

Kenny claims the situation needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible as Fonseca looks to make concrete plans for the future.

“The whole situation is just a massive distraction,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“There’s nothing worse than something like this lingering around the club, especially when it’s your best player.

“It needs to be put to bed one way or another. You’re either keeping him or selling him. It’s something that definitely needs sorting sooner rather than later.

“If the new manager is keeping him, build around him. If you’re selling him, start using that money to strengthen the squad.

“He needs to get it sorted now, really. But obviously, we’ve got the Euros which will make things different.

“I don’t think it will be something they’ll get done until after then anyway unless there’s stuff going on the background that we don’t know about.”
