Defoe tells Kane he needs to leave Tottenham if he’s “craving” trophies

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been told its time to seek pastures new if he wants to win silverware by Jermain Defoe.

The prolific frontman is now 27 but is yet to lift a single trophy in his career.

He burst onto the scene when Tottenham were on an upward trajectory under Mauricio Pochettino.

Now though the north London outfit appear someway off challenging and time is of the essence for Kane.

The player himself as refused to commit his future to Tottenham with rumours of a summer move continuing.

Defoe believes achieving an exit will prove difficult, especially given Daniel Levy’s negotiation history, but insists time may be up in north London.

Harry Kane is yet to win any silverware in his career

He told talkSPORT : “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.

“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.

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

When quizzed on speculation Kane claimed a decision would be made after the Euros, where England are among the favourites.

He said: “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.”
