Harry Kane: Young Spurs striker spent much of last season learning his trade awa

The 19-year-old Spurs starlet is currently with England at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, but will be keen to learn from his acclaimed Welsh squad mate under club colours.

Kane spent much of last season on loan, with Norwich and Leicester, but the young striker did make his Premier League debut for Spurs in a substitute appearance against Newcastle last August.

Previous loans at Millwall and Leyton Orient and starts for Spurs in the Europa League have all added experience to Kane's CV, but he feels that seeing Bale up close can only benefit his progress.

"Gareth's a world class player and you can only learn from players like that in the way they train and the way they play," Kane declared.

"You can only get better training with players like that - he's one hell of a player.

"Whenever you watch his game and his movement his confidence is extremely high. I'll try to learn from that.

"The more experience I gain, the better I will become."
