Harry Kane has dominated headlines for months on end after he informed Tottenham he would like to leave back in May, prompting Manchester City to pursue the striker throughout the summer
Harry Kane’s latest update on social media provides a glimpse of his driven mentality even during a time of intense speculation surrounding his future.
Kane, 28, has dominated headlines for months on end after he informed Tottenham he would like to leave back in May.
Manchester City quickly emerged as the striker’s principal suitors and saw a £100million bid rejected, but they will reportedly return with a final take-it-or-leave-it offer in the closing days of the transfer window.
Throughout the saga, Kane came under further scrutiny over an extended holiday which led to claims he had failed to report for training.
But the England captain is loath to sour his relationship with his boyhood club’s fans and has continued to be the consummate professional in recent weeks.
His desire for three points was evident even during the short time he was on the pitch, as he was booked for time-wasting while helping Tottenham see out the final few minutes.
Tottenham returned to training on Tuesday after maintaining their 100 per cent record in the top flight, and Kane took to Twitter to share pictures of him taking part in drills at the club’s base.
The Spurs academy graduate captioned his post “Working” and accompanied it with the flexed arm emoji.
Kane’s clear dedication to Tottenham for as long as he is on their books will come as no surprise to teammate Oliver Skipp.
Have you been impressed by Harry Kane’s professionalism throughout his transfer saga? Have your say in the comments.
“Harry’s one of the best strikers in the world so we’re always happy when he’s available,” said the Spurs midfielder after the victory at Molineux.
“You know what Harry is, he’s a professional, so he’ll give it his all when he comes on the pitch.
“You know Harry, he’s always one of the best trainers and he’s continued to do that. As you saw when he came on, he had that impact.”
Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo also praised Kane’s important cameo, saying: “He did well, he helped the team.
“He is still in the process of improving his fitness. But he is one of the best players in the world. You can see he helped the team in possession.”
Kane could feature in the second leg of the Europa Conference League play-off against Pacos de Ferreira on Thursday night, with Tottenham aiming to overturn a 1-0 aggregate deficit.
“He’s better today and he’ll be better tomorrow,” said Nuno of Kane’s fitness. “He can still improve, we cannot put a bar on that.”
