Harry Kane: Has returned to White Hart Lane from loan spell at Norwich

Spurs have opted to bring Kane back into their ranks after seeing him struggle for games at Carrow Road.

An untimely injury severely disrupted Kane's stint at Norwich, but he had returned to action at the turn of the year.

Spurs, though, believe he will be of more use to them over the second half of the season.

Villas-Boas failed to bolster his striking ranks on transfer deadline day, leaving him with just Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermaine Defoe as recognised frontmen.

"It was in both teams' interests and the player's interests too, to be fair," he said.

"Norwich have moved on and have found a striker so they didn't have the necessity to hold on to Harry and for us it gives us another option that has come through our youth level, so it's a common decision."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

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.
