Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts insists that Harry Kane wants to play for the club, having spoken to his father.
The striker was at the centre of a huge transfer saga in the summer as Manchester City attempted to take him to the Etihad Stadium.
However, reports claim that the highest bid City tabled was worth £75m plus £25m, a fee that fell well short of Spurs’ valuation.
As a result, he has remained in north London and has somewhat struggled through the first few Premier League games of the season.
Kane has played in all four league matches so far but has failed to score a goal, with his only strikes this season coming in the Europa Conference League, with a brace against Pacos de Ferreira, and against Wolves in the Carabao Cup earlier this week.
Roberts insists that the England captain is more than happy to keep playing for Tottenham, but says his current role simply isn’t working, as he is dropping far too deep on a regular basis.
He said: “I spoke to his dad on Sunday. No, Harry wants to play, he’s bubbling for every game, but I don’t know what’s being said because Harry Kane is playing midfield. Harry Kane is not going to score a goal from 50 yards up the pitch, it’s not going to happen, it’s impossible.
“He’s had three shots at goal in two games. Even Mourinho got him scoring goals last year. There’s something not clicking.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
