Spurs Yet to Agree New Contract for Kane

While the 29-year-old striker is happy to stay with the Lilywhites, the club are trying to convince him to sign a long-term extension to his current contract which is set to expire in 2024. There is no verbal agreement between the forward and the club officials over a new deal, as Spurs are taking things slow when it comes to approaching this.

Romano adds that Kane’s contract extension aspect is a ‘work in progress’ and it needs to be seen how it progresses over the next few months, with the FIFA World Cup also now around the corner. The 29-year-old striker – who was called a ‘big example for his teammates’ by Conte a few months ago has started the Premier League season really well with Tottenham and helped them stay unbeaten, having won five out of their opening seven games. The Englishman has scored six goals and provided an assist in the seven appearances and is only behind Manchester City striker Erling Haaland in the Golden Boot race.
