Harry Kane is Tottenham Hotspur’s top scorer this season with six goals to his name despite spending a large part of the campaign on the bench due to injury.

Earlier, Kane’s future at Spurs looked uncertain as both the parties couldn’t reach an agreement over a new deal.

“To sign another contract is a special feeling. We have got a great young squad and the club is moving in the right direction.”

According to sources, Kane’s new deal will earn him a wage packet in the range of more than £100,000 a week with add-ons for achieving certain targets.
