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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
