Kane ends speculation over his future by signing six-year contract extension at Tottenham

The deal is reportedly set to make him one of the highest-paid player in the club’s history.

TOTTENHAM HAVE AVOIDED a contract stand-off with Harry Kane after the club and player agreed a new six-year deal.

The England striker has put pen to paper on a new contract that runs until the summer of 2022 and is set to make him one of the best-paid players in the club’s history.

The London Evening Standard report that he will earn more than ÂŁ100,000 a week.

Kane has scored six goals in 10 appearances for Spurs this season having established himself as the one of the Premier League’s leading marksmen in recent years.

His new deal replaces the five-year contract he signed in February 2015.

Talks between the club and the player’s representatives hit a stumbling block last month but Daniel Levy was able to get the deal across the line to end any speculation about the striker’s future — even though he had three-and-a-half years left to run on his current agreement.

“Everyone knows what I feel for this club,” Kane said.

“To sign another contract is a special feeling. We have got a great young squad and the club is moving in the right direction.”

After coming through Tottenham’s academy, Kane made his debut in 2011 but it was towards the end of the 2013/14 campaign that he first made an impact.

The following season he scored 21 goals in the league and he now has 70 for Spurs in 137 appearances.

Kane has only recently returned from a seven-week absence with an ankle injury but has scored four goals in his last four matches.

Kyle Walker, Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Dele Alli have all extended their deals at Spurs.
