Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is convinced that Harry Kane will not leave the club this summer despite big speculation over his future.
The England captain has had another superb personal season, scoring 21 goals and creating 13 assists in the Premier League.
But he has been unable to prevent Spurs from struggling, and they look set to miss out on Champions League football for a second season in a row.
Some have suggested Kane could make a move to the likes of Manchester City or Manchester United in the next transfer window.
But speaking to Goal, Redknapp stated his belief that the 27-year-old will stay loyal to his boyhood team.
“I think he’ll stay," Redknapp said. "I think the new manager will come in and convince him that they’ll be having a go and signing a few more players.
“There’s nobody better than him. I wouldn’t swap him for any centre-forward in the world, personally. He would guarantee Man City, Man Utd or Liverpool winning the league next season, for sure. He’s a fantastic player. Tottenham have to keep him.”
Redknapp is also confident Spurs will bounce back next year, and thinks they have everything needed to challenge for major honours in the near future.
“Everything is in place at Tottenham,” he added. “They’ve got the best stadium in England, bar none, they’ve got an incredible training ground, which is out of this world, and they have good players.
“OK, maybe they need to shift one or two out who have come to the end of their time, and get one or two in. But if they do, anything can happen. They could be right there challenging next season.”
Kane is facing a race against time to be fit for Sunday's Carabao Cup final against City, and he will be desperate to feature and help inspire his side to their first trophy since 2008.
