Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of a place in the Champions League qualification places was dealt a blow on Saturday as they were beaten 4-1 by Leicester City. 

Spurs went ahead at The King Power Stadium through a goal from Rodrigo Bentancur, before the hosts ran riot and dented their opponents’ hopes of a top four place.

They now sit two points behind fourth-placed Newcastle United, with all four of the sides above them boasting at least one game-in-hand.

Despite the defeat, it appears that Spurs boss Antonio Conte may have a reason to be cheerful this week.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham talisman Harry Kane is intent on staying put in north London.

The report claims that the England captain, who has been linked with a number of European clubs including Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, will reject any offers from overseas.

Kane, 29, became the third-highest scorer in Premier League history when he scored the winner against Manchester City last week, and he is said to now be focussed on beating Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260.

Kane’s 200th Premier League goal took him to 267 for Spurs across all competitions, beating the record that was previously held by the late Jimmy Greaves.

It has been suggested in recent years that Kane would pursue a move away from Spurs in a bid to increase his chances of winning silverware.

Two years ago the striker was believed to be keen on a move to Manchester City, but the deal never materialised and City have since signed Erling Haaland.

It is claimed that Kane will now remain in the Premier League, most likely with Tottenham, although a sensational move to rivals Manchester United is also still possible.

Kane has been in good form this season, scoring 19 goals in 31 games across all competitions, including 17 in the league.

The striker’s current contract expires in the summer of 2024, and Spurs are hopeful that the Englishman will agree an extension sooner rather than later.
