Tottenham will try to keep Harry Kane beyond the end of his current contract by offering him a huge pay rise, according to reports.
After spending most of the summer angling for a move away from Spurs, Kane confirmed yesterday that he would be staying at the club this summer.
Kane wrote on Twitter: “It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success.”

Manchester City have been the main club trying to sign him this summer with the Citizens reportedly having a £100m bid turned down.
It was even rumoured that they were looking to make an improved offer of £127m with City not giving up hope of landing the England international.
However, Kane’s statement has ended speculation for this transfer window before the rumours start up again next year.
And now The Sun claims that Tottenham are ‘ready to offer Harry Kane a £100,000-a-week pay rise in a bid to keep him out of Manchester City’s clutches’.
Spurs ‘fear’ that City will come back in for Kane in January or next summer and ‘are preparing to offer him £330,000-a -week to try to keep him at the club until 2027’.
On Kane choosing to stay at the club for now, Nuno Espirito Santo said: “It’s great news, fantastic for everybody. We are all very happy. He’s one of the best players in the world. We are all delighted to have more options.
“It says we are able to keep one of the best players in the world — this is important. All the players have to show this belief that together we can make good things.”
