Tottenham Hotspur host Aston Villa in the Premier League tonight as the north London side’s unlikely pursuit of a Champions League spot goes down to the wire.
Spurs, led by interim coach Ryan Mason, are four points off fourth place with two games remaining, but even Champions League football next season may not be enough to keep star striker Harry Kane at the club.
The England captain informed Spurs this week that he wishes to leave at the end of the campaign to chase trophies elsewhere, though Mason said he was unaware of Kane having expressed a desire to depart.
Former Tottenham midfielder Mason’s focus must in any case remain on mid-table Villa, who could finally see captain Jack Grealish back in the starting line-up after he made his return off the bench last time out.

What is the team news?
The injured Ben Davies is set to miss the rest of the season for Spurs, while fellow full-back Serge Aurier is a doubt.
Villa captain Grealish could start, having returned from injury off the bench in the club’s loss to Palace last week. Matty Cash, meanwhile, will be absent for the remainder of the term due to a hamstring issue – as will Morgan Sanson with a knee injury. Tyrone Mings, however, could be present in defence despite the shin injury he picked up against Everton.
Tottenham: Lloris; Tanganga, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Lo Celso; Bale, Alli, Son; Kane.
Aston Villa: Martinez; Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Luiz, Nakamba; Traore, McGinn, Grealish; Watkins.
