Kane targets NFL role upon retirement

After plundering 31 goals in a remarkable breakthrough season at White Hart Lane last campaign, Kane has struggled to make an impact at the start of 2015/16.
A four-game drought has seen the striker’s form called into question, with fatigue also a contributing factor to his stalling start.
But the England international has continually reaffirmed his belief that the goals will eventually come at Spurs again, while he has also revealed his desire for a potential future career change.
While the switch remains a long way off at just 22-years-old, Kane wishes to branch out into the NFL after his football playing days are over.
“It depends on how my football career goes but, when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker,” the forward told The Sun. “Even if I got to play just one game it is something I would like to do.
“It’s a long way off yet. But it is definitely something I have thought about. 
Back in July, Tottenham struck a deal with the NFL to host fixtures in their planned new stadium from 2018, and Kane feels he has benefited from such a link-up already.
“We’ve had NFL teams come to Spurs and I can kick the ball as high and as far as them, but not on a consistent basis so I would need a bit of practice first.”
