Tottenham striker Harry Kane would “be stupid not to go” if Liverpool or Manchester City made an offer, according to Chris Sutton.

The England international insisted on Sunday night that he will not simply stay at Tottenham “for the sake of it” if he doesn’t think the club is heading in the right direction.

Spurs reached the Champions League final last season but are currently eighth in the Premier League as they seem to have taken a step back this term.

“I can understand the predicament he is in,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“But if he wants to win the Premier League, then he should move on and go to a club who have better chance of winning it than Spurs do.

“We all understand he wants to win something. So if he wants to win something, I wouldn’t begrudge him a move.

“Spurs are a brilliant club, but at this moment in time they are way behind the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

“If one of those clubs came in for him, if you were Harry Kane you would be be stupid not to go.”

Fellow pundit Ian Wright expects Kane to stay around for at least another year now Jose Mourinho is in charge.

“Now they have a manager who is a notorious winner of trophies,” said Wright.

“Kane did say ‘next year will be the first chance the gaffer will have to bed his values into the team’.

“That says to me he is somebody who is already thinking of next year, so he’s not going anywhere.

“I’d give this manager a chance with his pre-season, do next season and see where it goes. Because from when he made his debut up to now, I think he has given them everything he can.

“If nothing happens and Harry Kane decides to leave then you have you have to say ‘well, he’s under Mourinho, nothing has changed’. He wants to win medals.

“You can’t have that kind of ability, that kind of goalscorer who is able to win matches, and not win anything. You can’t.”
