England striker Harry Kane has signed a new contract with Tottenham that will tie him to the club until 2022.

The deal, reportedly worth more than £100,000 a week, replaces the five-year agreement he signed in February 2015.

"Everyone knows what I feel for this club," said Kane, 23, who has scored five goals in 17 England appearances.

"To sign another contract is a special feeling. We have got a great young squad and the club is moving in the right direction."

Kane has scored six goals in 10 appearances for Spurs this season, despite missing 10 games with an ankle injury.

He scored 21 times in the top flight in 2014-15 and won the Golden Boot with 25 league goals last season.


Guessing he'll be getting new deals every 18 months if he keeps banging the goals in as he's the golden goose for them so they need to make sure they've got him tied down long term just in case the like of Real Madrid become interested.

I think he'll need to do more in the CL and also star at a World Cup before that happens as so far he's not really made much of an impact on those levels.

Kane absolutely stunk up the Euro he had a dip in form towards the end of the season and that carried over into the Euros imo yes Shearer had a tough start but Owen & Rooney didn't and Kane has plenty of people looking to take his spot so he'll need to pull his finger out and start scoring if he wants to keep that shirt.

I agree I think it's a matter of time before he cracks it but like Lukaku he's a young striker scoring lots of goals in English football but so far he's not really done much in the Champions League which is the highest level of football mainly because they've not played many games in it.

Mauricio Pochettino insists that Tottenham find it “very difficult to compete” with their main Premier League rivals.

Tottenham are fourth in the current Premier League table after 15 games, with their unbeaten start now long forgotten after two defeats in their last three league games.

The 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday means they are now as close to leaders Chelsea as they are to 13th-placed Burnley in terms of points.

Having suffered a premature exit from their Champions League group, the north Londoners are enduring a poor run of form.

But Pochettino believes much of this could be down to the side’s difficult summer transfer window, in which they signed just five players.

Moussa Sissoko arrived for a club-record fee of £30million, while Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Paul O’Pez also joined the club.

Manager Pochettino feels that this was the calibre of player Tottenham could sign, while their main title rivals are shopping in a different market.

“For us, it is very difficult to sign players like our opponents,” he said.

“When you compare Tottenham with Liverpool, Chelsea, City, United and Arsenal, in this moment it is very difficult to compete with them. The challenge is to be clever and to take risks – and as we know, when you take risks in football, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.”


Sounds to me like they're getting the excuses in early

The obvious thing to me is a few key players from last season haven't reach the same standads.

Dier has lost his place to Wanyama
Alli hasn't looked anywhere near the player he was last season but he's only a kid so that's to be expected
Eriksen had a very slow start to the season but has improved in last few weeks
Lamela seems to have hardly featured

I think they over achieved with their title run last season .. Delle Alli looks like rot child short fuse who could get sent off .. Its hard for pochetino but you can take inspiration from Ath Madrid they broke the Madrid - barcelona monopoly .. and have been consistent in league and europe ..

Real Madrid will make a summer move for Tottenham's England midfielder Dele Alli, 20. Real, who have previously signed former Spurs players Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, are serving a one-window transfer ban but are free to buy again in the close season. (Daily Mirror)


He's just signed a 6 year deal so it's not contract talk but seems like a weird one as while he's a very talented young player he's nowhere near good enough to get in that team yet plus imo he still needs to prove himself at the European/International level.

Unless he's got some sort of exit clause in that contract I don't see how Madrid could make it happen without breaking the world record again

Just don't know where that story evens come from I'm sure Madrid have an eye on him but unless he's a star at the World Cup in 2018 then I just don't see why Madrid go there as he'd cost an absolute fortune

In terms of his career Spurs is a great place for him to be for the next few years

Tottenham Hotspur are braced to be without Jan Vertonghen for up to two months after the Belgium defender underwent scans on the ankle ligament injury sustained in Saturday’s thrashing of West Bromwich Albion.

The tests on the joint revealed a tear lying between grades two and three, damage which had left Vertonghen in tears as he departed the turf at White Hart Lane and would normally rule him out at the very least until mid-March. Rehabilitation will begin once the swelling has receded on the left ankle and Mauricio Pochettino is preparing for life without the influential defender.

Spurs have found their best form of the season over recent weeks, winning seven matches in succession in all competitions to rise to second in the Premier League table. The adaptable and dependable Vertonghen has been a key element in that and is distraught at the timing of the injury. At the same stage last year he injured medial knee ligaments, having been elbowed in the face by Crystal Palace’s Connor Wickham, and was ruled out for over 11 weeks at a critical stage of the season.

This time he will sit out Saturday’s trip to Manchester City, as well as the game at Liverpool in mid-February and the Europa League tie with the Belgian club Gent next month. Tottenham have utilised a back three over recent weeks and Vertonghen’s absence may see either Kevin Wimmer or Ben Davies, who plays in that system with Wales, drafted in alongside Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld across the backline. At present, Pochettino is not inclined to enter the transfer market in search of a stop-gap.

He's an ex PSG player and I think he said he enjoyed playing at PSG and it might be that he liked living in Paris.

It's a chance to manage a squad of world class players that on paper should be able to challenge for the champions league plus it's a chance to win trophies in a league where you are the best team.

I think they should stick with Emery they got him for a reason and he should be given a chance to correct the mistake made vs Barca

As for Poch I don't think he's desperate to leave Spurs BUT with the stadium move next season they're at Wembley he must be worried that the team will suffer they have a bad record at Wembley and their league position over recent years is down to excellant home form. Also, with the stadium move taking up cash it's hard for Spurs to go to the next level to attract players they've been smart and tied down the current first team to long term contracts but they need a better squad and the signings in the summer didn't really come off Sissoko & Jannsen have flopped which has left him short.

This team needs a trophy though and fast otherwise the top talent will start to think that Spurs can only go close and they need to go elsewhere to get the titles and once 1 player makes that decision it becomes an exodus just look at Arsenal.

Tottenham will discover on Thursday if their proposal to host 27 matches at Wembley next season has been approved.

Brent Council's planning committee are to discuss the application as Spurs hope to take one step closer to confirming their switch for the 2017-18 campaign.

Tottenham have until March 31 to activate the option to play at Wembley although it is understood their decision will not depend solely on Brent Council's verdict.

Building work continues on the club's new £800m stadium next to White Hart Lane and the key consideration is whether the project can be completed on time.

Spurs could yet stay at their current ground next season and play home games at Wembley in 2018-19, before moving into the new stadium for the 2019-20 campaign.

Brent Council's approval of 27 matches at the full capacity of 90,000 is also considered essential given Tottenham are desperate to avoid hosting games in a part-full Wembley, with the negative effects that would have on the atmosphere.

Wembley can allow five more major sporting events within its current cap so Spurs are asking for an additional 22 to make 27 overall.

They initially asked for a total of 36 games at the national stadium's maximum capacity of 90,000, in order to cover the highest number of home matches the club could feasibly play in all competitions next season.

But the proposal was considered too great a strain on local residents, with Brent Council instead suggesting a compromise option of all 36 matches but at a reduced capacity of 61,000, the same figure the new White Hart Lane will hold.

Tottenham have not budged on the maximum attendance, however, and their latest proposal requests the 90,000 capacity but for only 27 fixtures.

Any more matches would then in theory have to fall in line with Wembley's current regulations, which state additional events can only be open to the lower and middle tiers, amounting to an attendance of 50,835.


I thought it was a done deal but it's already very busy there on weekends because of the shopping centre next door but it will be good for a lot of the small businesses like take away and newsagents on the high street having the football crowds every week

I think the concern is if they let Spurs do it for 1 year after that you have Chelsea probably needing 2 years away from Stamford Bridge while that is rebuilt as they need to demolish their ground before they can build as the site is much smaller.

Wembley isn't designed to take this sort of traffic every week I think they are well within their rights to insist capacity is limited to 60,000 for club teams to use it for a whole year.
