Harry Kane has revealed he will think about his future at Tottenham Hotspur when they stop progressing. The England captain, who has been linked with elite clubs across Europe including Manchester United and LaLiga giants Real Madrid, is keen to win silverware at the north London club.

The loss of forwards Kane and Heung-min Son to injury handed crushing blows to the Lilywhites, who dropped form just before the 2019-20 season was suspended due to the COVID-19 chaos, and they currently sit in 8th spot in the Premier League table, seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

However, the Kane has now admitted he could leave Tottenham if they do not match his ambitions for trophies. “Obviously I get asked this question a lot,” said Kane, in an Instagram Live chat with Jamie Redknapp. “It’s one of those things – I couldn’t say yes and I couldn’t say no. “I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs but I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there for the sake of it. “I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players. “It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. “So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever, but it’s not a no either.”

The 26-year-old added: “We have got a fantastic team, but for one reason or another we haven’t been able to get those trophies, that you look from the outside and think we’ve got the team to get. “It’s a hard thing to take as a player. I want to win everything we do. “So when we get close it’s hard to take and it starts to build up. But from my point of view all you can do is do the best you can, give your best to win every game and win trophies. “For one reason or another we haven’t quite got there yet. If we do finish the season we’ve got to try to get back into the Champions League spots. “And next year would be the first chance for the gaffer to have a pre-season, and bed his values into the team. So we’ll see what happens. “Of course I want to win trophies, and to do that sooner rather than later.”

When quizzed about working with ex-Chelsea and United coach Jose Mourinho, Kane replied: “It’s been good. What you see is what you get. He’s an honest guy. “If he likes you, he’ll tell you; if he doesn’t like you, he’ll tell you. “From my point of view I’ve built a good relationship with him. “It’s great to work under a manager like Jose. Growing up watching Premier Leagues he was a big part of that. “So it’s another opportunity for me to work with one of the best managers in the world. So I’m excited to see how that relationship unfolds, and I know he’s excited to put his stamp on the team. “From a players’ point of view we know we’ve got a top, top manager, so it’s up to us to go out and perform.”
