Harry Kane’s future remains uncertain as the striker seeks to secure a Tottenham exit with Man City keen but his actions during pre-season have put him and the club in a difficult position
Harry Kane will find it impossible to stay at Tottenham after his summer transfer saga.
Robinson also said the fall-out will “not bode well” for Kane and warned that if they try to play him then it could cause problems in the dressing room and he will not do himself justice on the pitch.
Tottenham face City on Sunday with Spurs boss Nuno insisting that Kane will be available for selection despite him only reporting back for training last weekend.
Ex-England keeper Robinson told Gambling.com: “I don’t think there’s a possibility that he can stay there now.
“I think the way that he’s conducted himself and the way he’s been badly advised, or whether he’s made these decisions on his own, will not bode well for him.
“It’s a deal we all hope will be done sooner rather than later. The cleaner it’s done, the less likely it is to tarnish the club or the player.
“There’s only one way Harry Kane stays at Spurs and that’s by resolving the whole situation by coming out and publicly saying things have changed, that he’s happy to play for the new manager and wants to stay at the club. Other than that, I can’t see any other way that he stays.”

England captain Kane wants to leave Tottenham to win major trophies and initially Spurs fans were sympathetic but the public fall-out has divided opinion after he stayed away from training, later insisting he was not due back until the weekend.
Robinson, who had four years at Tottenham, added: “The manager’s saying he’s available for selection against Manchester City on Sunday.
“But I find that strange given he’s only trained for a few days and not played any minutes in pre-season games. I can’t see how that can happen.
“If the manager does start putting him in to squads and into the team while the situation is not resolved, I think we’ll end up in a similar situation to when Christian Eriksen was there – sitting on the bench, not playing to his full potential when called upon.
“That upset the rest of the dressing room, in all honesty, and I think the way this has been handled has not been good for either party. It’s very difficult to keep a player happy when he wants to leave.
“Kane said he wants to go, City have said they want him. It’s just a case of sorting the finances out.
“Tottenham hold the cards at the moment. Harry Kane is contracted to Tottenham. Unfortunately for him, because he doesn’t want to be there, they pay his wages and when they say they want him at training he should be at training.”
