Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is set to begin contract talks with the club, less than 12 months after admitting he wanted to move to Manchester City. 

Last summer, the England captain was heavily linked with Pep Guardiola’s side after admitting his desire to leave north London, although a move never materialised.

City have since agreed deals for both Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, who have scored a combined 136 goals in 202 games for their respective current sides.

The 28-year-old has scored a remarkable 248 goals in 386 games for Spurs, but is yet to win a trophy during his senior career and revealed a year ago his desire to leave in search of silverware.

Now though, the striker looks set to extend his stay in the capital, according to The Evening Standard.

The report claims that the Englishman is now happy with life under Antonio Conte, and will enter into discussions over a contract extension soon.

A year ago, Kane is believed to have rejected a new offer from Spurs shortly after conceding that he would not be leaving for Man City.

Spurs’ enjoyed a more successful season than expected, though, with Conte guiding them to Champions League qualification after taking charge in November.

Kane endured a slow start to the season personally, scoring just once in his first 14 league games, but finished the season in fine form and ended with a tally of 27 goals and ten assists across all competitions.

According to The Evening Standard, the player’s ambition has always been to win a trophy with his boyhood club, and he is increasingly confident of doing so considering their progress under former Chelsea boss Conte.

Kane is hopeful that the Spurs board will back the Italian during the upcoming summer transfer window and providing they do, would then be happy to entertain any approach from the club.
