Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy may be facing serious questions from Harry Kane this summer with Jermain Defoe becoming the latest person to tip the striker for a move away from north London. Kane made headlines last year when he admitted that he wouldn’t stay at Tottenham “for the sake of it”.

The Spurs striker has established himself as one of the best forwards in the world but it appears as though there are some frustrations at the club’s lack of silverware.

A number of former players such as Danny Murphy, Robbie Savage and Jonathan Woodgate have urged Kane to leave Tottenham to join a team capable of challenging for silverware on a regular basis.

And Defoe, who’s contract with Rangers expires this summer, shares the same opinion that Kane may need to start looking at a big-money move.

“If you’d have asked me this question a few years ago, I’d have said he should have stayed there, what he’s done at the football club – he’s a legend,” Defoe told talkSPORT.

“Since I’ve come away from that and gone to Rangers, I’ve seen that mentality and played for another big club, the importance of playing for that club and winning every game, that mentality, the standards and demands.

“You have to win and bring silverware, otherwise it’s not good enough. When you actually achieve that and the feeling you get from that, wow man. I wish I had that earlier on in my career.

“If Harry Kane wants that and wants to win trophies then it looks like he has to go.

“I don’t think it will be easy for him to leave and he might be looking at it and want to finish off being the highest goalscorer in the club’s history and see where that takes him.

DON’T MISS

“He can hopefully win a few trophies, but if he’s really craving medals then he really has to go.”

Kane recently refused to rule out a move in the future in the hope of challenging for trophies on a regular basis.

“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros,” Kane said.

“To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.

“I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros.

“Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible.

“I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer and then we’ll see where we go from there.”

Kane’s contract doesn’t expire until 2024, meaning Tottenham certainly don’t need to sell anytime soon.
