Tottenham will imminently revive talks with Harry Kane on a new £110,000-a-week contract, Football Insider sources understand.
Spurs began preliminary discussions before Euro 2016 with the Spurs talisman about tying him down to a new agreement.
A well-placed Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the club are ready to re-open negotiations with their star player about improved terms.
Football Insider revealed in March that Spurs were keen to tie Kane, 23, down to a lucrative new contract that will make him the best-paid player in the club’s history.

The north Londoners are ready to offer Kane a stunning £110,000-a-week deal that would run until 2021 if, as expected, an agreement can be reached.
The striker had a disappointing Euro 2016 and has drawn blanks in Tottenham’s opening two matches of the new season against Everton and in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
But Kane has had two consecutive outstanding seasons for Spurs and topped the Premier League goal charts last season with 25 goals and came third, behind Leicester duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, in the PFA Player of the Year award.
