Tottenham caretaker manager Ryan Mason has responded to transfer rumours involving Harry Kane following news that the striker wishes to leave Tottenham in the summer.
He’s been Tottenham’s most important players for now and adding a player of his quality to our squad would significantly strengthen our chances of challenging for the Premier League title.
Kane doesn’t have loads of options because only few Premier League clubs can afford to prize him away from Daniel Levy.
Mason insists he hasn’t spoken to his star player about a transfer. The big elephant in the room.

I love how Mason isn’t arsed to act as though he’s on top of the situation. He has accepted, as caretaker manager, he won’t be in that role for much longer.
When he was inevitably asked about Kane’s future at his press conference today, Mason said (via football.london): “All of my conversations, I am not so sure. I don’t know.
“I speak to Harry pretty much every day. He’s excited along with me about tomorrow. Our only discussions have been about the game. We’re looking forward to tomorrow.
“I don’t think anything is awkward. There’s always speculation around the best players, like there’s been speculation around who the next manager will be.”
Here’s a point many seem to be playing a blind eye to over Kane, which is that he isn’t going to be happy after the upheaval caused by Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking and the future for Tottenham hangs in the balance with a new manager yet to be appointed.
Kane is under no obligation to discuss his future with Mason.
