England striker Harry Kane has confirmed that he will be staying at Tottenham this summer despite a move from the club.
The news brings to an end attempts by rivals Manchester City to win his signature despite tabling a 100 million Euro offer that was declined by the club’s chairman Daniel Levy.
Despite improving their offer to 127 million, the deal was rejected by the club with the chairman saying that the price is still not enough to win Harry Kane’s signature in the summer.

Kane was forced to accept the news even though he hoped to play under Pep Guardiola this season and boost his European dominance.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success.” Said Kane
Immediately after the Euros, the England striker focused on moving out and even stayed away from Tottenham’s training in protest of Levy’s decision after they had a gentleman agreement that he can depart.
“Tottenham board on the same position since June 1. NO intention to sell Harry Kane. NO players accepted like Gabriel Jesus or Laporte. Two official City bids refused: €122m, €150m
Daniel Levy, Fabio Paratici and Nuno on a mission day by day: convince Harry to stay.” Said Fabrizio Romano.
On Sunday, Kane came in as a substitute and received a warm reception from the fans who welcomed him back. Tottenham beat Wolves 1-0 during the clash.
Speaking after the clash, Nuno praised him for helping them secure a win and playing a crucial role.
