Harry Kane reveals he'll decide Tottenham future after Euros as skipper vows to focus on England
HARRY KANE will decide his club future after the Euros.
But the England captain vowed not to let claims he wants to leave Spurs distract him from the Three Lions’ glory bid this summer.
When put on the spot about whether he needed to quit Tottenham to win trophies, Kane, 27, said: “I think that’s a hard question to answer right now.
“To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.
“I’m focused on finishing strong with Spurs, winning these qualifiers with England and hopefully going on to have a great Euros.
“I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer and we’ll see where we go from there.”
Kane’s future at Spurs is back in the spotlight after dismal defeats by Arsenal in the North London derby and Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.
The Tottenham talisman, who has another three years left on his current contract, said: “I think it’s been a difficult spell but, look, we went into the Arsenal game winning five games in a row.
“Obviously the Arsenal game was a difficult one to take and the Europa League where we went out was a big disappointment.
“But we bounced back on Sunday with a win [at Aston Villa] and I think when you look at the bigger picture, we’re a couple of points off the top four places and we’ve got a cup final to play.
“So if we’re looking at it at the end of May and we’ve finished in the top four and won the Carabao Cup, I think everyone will say it’s been a pretty good season.”
It remains to be seen whether even hitting those targets would be enough to persuade Kane to stay.
But the England skipper is very clear that the only way to avoid regrets in his international career is to win silverware.
Manchester United and England record scorer Wayne Rooney won almost everything at club level but has said failing to lift a trophy as Three Lions skipper left the most painful gap on his CV.
Kane added: “I’d be the same as Wayne if I got to the end of my career and I haven’t won a trophy with England.
“I'll always look back and probably regret that in the same way.
“So that’s why personally I’ve got to do as much as I can to help us win something.”
