Kane has signed a contract which ties him to Spurs until the summer of 2017, but the 19-year-old will spend the rest of this term in the Championship.

The Londoner's latest loan comes after a mixed spell at Norwich during which he made just five appearances and suffered a broken bone in his foot.

But last season brought seven goals at Championship level with Millwall, and Leicester boss Nigel Pearson hopes Kane can revive a promotion campaign which has faltered with back-to-back defeats.

Pearson said: "He'll hopefully bring more goals, a fresh impetus, and it keeps that competition really keen.

"He's a player that we know quite a lot about and I'm delighted that we've been able to secure him for our squad and it will hopefully be a positive move all round.

"It's always important that if you bring players in on loan, they've got to have a hunger for success, and I'm confident that we've got another player coming into our ranks that with bring a lot of positive qualities."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
