Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho won’t let Harry Kane's recent comments bother him.

The England striker said it’s a “hard question to answer right now" when asked about his future at the north London club during the international break.

However, Lilywhites boss Mourinho says Kane, who still has another three years left on his current contract, should be happy with his current situation.

Asked whether he was bothered that Kane didn’t pledge his future Spurs, Mourinho said as Sky Sports quoted: "No. No. I want Harry to be with us what he has been. I want Harry to repeat against Newcastle the same performance he had against Aston Villa.

"When I say the same performance, I mean the same commitment, the same desire, the same team spirit, the same leadership. That's what I want and I know that I'm going to have that.

"I cannot play that game (of speculation). I have to focus on what he is for us."

Jose added: "Of course I'm always pleased when my players go to national teams and do well so I'm happy he does well with England. I'm happy that England wins obviously but I cannot play the game of what people say, what the people doesn't say.

"What I know is he's professional. Apart from being talented or not, it's very important that a player is professional. And he's very professional. I'm very, very pleased to have him and I repeat: I'm happy to see him and all the other guys go to national team and do well.

"It's always better when they come back after positive results. I think he's living a good period, he's doing well for club and country. Ahead of him before the end of the season he has nice challenges: a final to play, Premier League to fight for every point and then he has a Euros, and the possibility to play a final at Wembley. I think he has to be happy with the moment he's living."
