Harry Kane’s recent string of impressive performances have been enough to convince the head coach of Tottenham Hotspurs, Mauricio Pochettino on offering the 21 year old player a contract extension which extends until 2020.
It’s believed that Kane will be earning around 35,000 pounds each week with this new contract that has been signed.
“It’s been a great six months since signing the last contract. I’ve been really pleased with how things have gone. This new contract is another stepping stone and hopefully now I’ll push on again from this and get even better.I’m only 21 and I’ve a lot of football ahead of me. I’ll keep my feet on the ground and keep working hard for the team and for the club. I’ve been at Spurs since I was 11 and always loved the club.’’ Harry Kane expressed his joy in signing the new contract as this was the statement that he wrote on the official website of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said that he is not willing to make any more additions to his side this winter.
The Spurs had signed a lot of players during the pre-season transfer window, six to be precise, namely Eric Dier (England), Ben Davies (Wales), Benjamin Stambouli (France), Michel Vorm (Netherlands), Federico Fazio (Argentina) and DeAndre Yedlin (United States of America).
Pochettino reckons his side is stable at each and every front at the moment and there is simply no need for any signing to be made in January.

Tottenham fans have been asking for the inclusion of Harry Kane in the Premier League team. The England under 21 international has been a huge hit at White Hart Lane, partly because of his roots but largely because of his form. Tottenham strikers like Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have been the first choice for the club in the league. However, they have so far failed to impress and have managed just two goals between them. Kane, meanwhile, has been a breath of fresh air and he has provided a healthy return of six goals in other competitions like the Europa League and the League Cup.
His goal against Brighton Hove Albion in the midweek League Cup action has not gone unnoticed. Fans have been asking the manager to include him in the starting line-up for the Premier League matches. Tottenham have been struggling for form and consistency since Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival. The club started the season with top four ambitions, but they are now eighth in the table. Even though only three points separates them from Arsenal in the fourth spot, it is looking highly unlikely that Tottenham will be anywhere close to a Champions League place at the end of the season.
Pochettino has responded to the fans claims by saying that he will not be forced into making selections. “I understand the fans want him to play because he is an English player. I understand he is a special player for our supporters. Today if we were in Argentina and he was an Argentinean player and playing with two foreign strikers, it would always be a sensitive situation. He is English, he is young and from the Tottenham academy so it is normal. We understand he is a special player for Tottenham and for our supporters,” said Pochettino.
