Harry Kane breaks silence on transfer saga



Three Lions captain, Harry Kane, has broken the silence on the transfer situation with Tottenham Hotspur having been accused of refusing to train in order to force a move away from the club.

WuzupNigeria reported that the 28-year-old handed in a transfer request in May, a month after he expressed a desire to win team trophies despite admitting that individual awards are great.

“I want to be winning the biggest prizes as a team and we are not quite doing that,” Kane said during an interview.

Although Spurs were adamant they want him to remain at the club, Kane left chairman, Daniel Levy, fuming after he failed to report at Hotspur Way for Covid-19 testing on Monday in a bid to force through his £160million move to Manchester City, UK Sun reports.

Tottenham were reportedly prepared to sanction the EURO 2020 finalist for extending his holiday to force a transfer to City, prompting an ex-Spurs striker, Dimitar Berbatov advising the Englishman against ghosting the club, having been in a similar situation before forcing a move to Manchester United in 2008.

However, with the transfer window set to close on August 31, Kane has denied refusing to train and declared he will not go on strike to force a move away from Tottenham.

The Englishman stated that he would not wreck his relationship with the fans and will return to training tomorrow.

“It’s almost ten years since I made my Spurs debut. For every one of those years, you – the fans – have shown me total support and love.

“That’s why it hurts to read some of the comments that have been made this week, questioning my professionalism.

“While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned.

“I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardise the relationship I have with the fans who have given me such unwavering support during my time with the club.

“This has always been the case as it is today,” he said.
