Harry Kane who was bent on leaving Spurs for Manchester City this summer but could not get his move from Tottenham Hotspur has revealed some drama that played out in his failed move out of Spurs.
The England captain, who reportedly turned up late for Spurs' pre-season trainings in a bid to join the Premier League champions was said to ha e issued a ‘come and get me' plea to Pep shortly before the EURO 2020 this summer.
After Kane's appearance on ‘The Overlap' with Gary Neville, it appeared to suggest that a move to one of the Premier League's top clubs was on the horizon having enjoyed a remarkable spell in North London.
However, Kane's attempts to force a move away from the club this summer have proved unsuccessful, with shrewd operator Daniel Levy retaining the services of his star man.
While speaking to talkSPORT'S correspondent on Tuesday, Spurs' all time goalscorer said; “I know there was a lot of noise surrounding me, but I was quite calm. I knew what the situation was between me and the club, and that’s the way it’ll stay.”
“Everyone has their opinions on it, but that’s part of the parcel of the profession we’re in.”
“I'm fully focussed with club and country and looking forward to a great year.”
When asked by Carruthers whether he feels he has severed ties with Spurs following his well-documented efforts to leave, Kane replied: “No, I don’t think so.”
“I think anyone involved in the football industry knows the ins and outs.”
“I was quite calm with the situation, but when you’re in it, and you know the truth, then your conscience is clear.”
“There’s always going to be noise. My whole career, I’ve had ups and downs from when I’m young to where I am. That’s just part of the parcel of it.”
“A lot of people that know me will say I’m a professional athlete who’s dedicated my life to this game, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”
“I'll look forward now, the aim has always been to win silverware with Tottenham, and it’s been that aim every year.”
And after realizing that his attempts to leave the White Hart Lane proved futile, the 28-year old forward went to social media to confirm to fans that he would be spending the upcoming season with his boyhood club, effectively ending City's effort to capture him – at least for this season.
