Harry Kane will ABANDON Tottenham transfer demands as striker backs new boss Antonio Conte to finally win trophies

HARRY KANE is ready to abandon all plans to quit Tottenham after the arrival of Antonio Conte.

The England captain, 28, believes the Italian’s appointment can help Spurs now challenge for trophies, which is why he tried to force a summer move to Manchester City.

Conte, 52, was officially unveiled on Tuesday and will be handed a huge £150million transfer war chest.

SunSport understands striker Kane, along with the rest of the squad, is delighted Tottenham have nabbed the former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach following Nuno Espirito Santo’s sacking.

Kane was angry with Daniel Levy in the summer as he believed the Spurs chairman had backed down from a gentleman’s agreement that he could leave the North London club for City if the right offer came in.

Tottenham did not feel that City’s £125m bid was enough, so a frustrated Kane remained at the club.

Before the summer transfer window slammed shut, the hitman eventually accepted he would not be leaving.

In a statement, he said: “I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100 per cent focused on helping the team achieve success.”


Yet Kane had hoped that, potentially, he could still land a move next summer.

Chelsea were also interested but Kane had been firm that he was not interested in moving to one of Tottenham’s most bitter rivals.

He has three years left on his current deal – worth more than £200,000 a week but closer to £300,000 with bonuses.

Kane has suffered a difficult start to the current campaign and he has been hurt by criticism from Spurs fans due to his desire to leave and the fact he turned up late for pre-season training.

But the striker had always maintained privately that if the club were competitive at the top of the Premier League, he would want to remain at Tottenham and would snub a move elsewhere.

He has scored seven times for Spurs this season – but only once in the Premier League, in the 3-2 win at Newcastle on October 17.

Kane is hoping the team will improve massively under Conte and that the former Chelsea boss can be a success across London.

Conte won three straight titles at Juventus, plus the Premier League in his first season at Stamford Bridge, as well as the Serie A crown with Inter Milan last season.
