Kane to STAY at Spurs, Unai Emery REJECTS Newcastle and is 'baffled club are considering Eddie Howe' – transfer news

HARRY KANE no longer wants a transfer away from Tottenham, SunSport can reveal.

The England captain is full of belief in the club following the ambitious appointment of Antonio Conte and ready to help the Italian win trophies.

But Newcastle have been left rocked after Unai Emery rejected their offer of the manager's role.

Emery was reportedly fuming with the club's Saudi owners for supposedly putting him in a position where it looked like he was keen to leave Villarreal on the day of their crucial Champions League match with Young Boys.

The former Arsenal boss was also said to be baffled that Eddie Howe was the main rival candidate for the role, feeling that this signified that the club had no plan or idea what type of coach they wanted.

    Villarreal boss Unai Emery has turned down the chance to manage Newcastle because the Toon’s new owners lack a clear vision for the club, it has been reported.

    But the Magpies new Saudi chiefs refuse to give up on the Spaniard and are frantically trying to change his mind with a flurry of phone calls being exchanged between both parties.

    Emery’s the latest in the string of managers to reject Newcastle’s advances as reports claim Antonio Conte, Xavi and Joachim Low have all turned down the job.

    Meanwhile, Tottenham-bound Conte won’t be able to start work at White Hart Lane because he’s still awaiting his visa.

    But the Italian should’ve received his work permit in time to be in the Spurs dugout for their Europa League conference game against Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday.

    In other news, bookies have slashed the odds of Cristiano Ronaldo being named Manchester United new boss to 14/1.

    Ronaldo was at the heart of United’s resurgence against Atalanta in the Champions League last night and bookmakers reckon he could replace under-fire Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.

    However, not everyone was happy with Ronaldo’s double against the Serie A side, and Atalanta’s boss Gian Piero Gasperini revealed that he jokingly told the Portuguese star to go to hell after the game.

    But Ronaldo’s double strike was eclipsed by Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski who scored a hat-trick in the German sides 5-2 win against Benfica last night.

    His treble took his total to a remarkable 81 goals in his first 100 Champions League games, trumping Ronaldo’s tally of 64 strikes in the same number of games.
