Where does Harry Kane fit in next season?

by Matthew Harris on April 9, 2014

Harry Kane marked his first Premier League start for Spurs with a goal and an assist and although the display came against the league’s bottom side, it was one of the few positives to have come out of the last few weeks.

After the match against Sunderland, the striker was naturally delighted with the goal and hoped that this would be the start of a career in the top flight.

“I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to get the start and it was great to get the goal and hopefully I can push on and get a few more,” Kane said

“The Premier League is the top of the tree, and if you can do it there, then you can do it anywhere.

“So hopefully I will get a few more chances and a few more goals. There are five games left and you have to take each one as it comes.”

With Roberto Solado injured, the England Under 21 striker may get an extended run with Emmanuel Adebayor up front and even if the Spaniard does return before the end of the campaign, Harry looks a better option right now. The question is, what happens next season?

Back in October, Andre Villas-Boas said he was cautious over the player’s next move, suggesting that some of his previous loan spells had been a waste of time.

“We can’t have a loan situation that does not work for him, like the ones that we have had before,” AVB said at the time.

“That’s why we have been very cautious with his next step, and we have not been in a rush in that situation.

“Why haven’t the loans worked before? Because he didn’t play.”

He’s still only 20 but another loan stint does look to be nonsensical after Monday’s display. A new coach may have his own views on a young English centre forward but we would sincerely like to see Harry Kane given his chance as the club’s third striker during the next campaign.

What’s your view?

Simply not good enough. As an Englishman who is all for the promotion of English talent I’m sad to say that. But it’s true.

If we have the option of buying a top striker or two will we be talking about Harry Kane being good enough? Not in a million years.

KANE SHOULD BE GIVEN ANOTHER CHANCE ALONG WITH SIGGY.IT MUST BE A BETTER STRIKE FORCE WITH ERIKSEN PLAYING BEHIND.WITH ADE WE WILL HAVE A STRIKE FORCE OF SOME MERIT.SOLDADO HAS BEEN GIVEN SO MANY CHANCES AND HAS RARELY CLICKED.YOU CAN SEE HIS CLASS ON THE BALL.HE HAS THE CLOSE SEASON AND ON TOUR TO SHOW IF HE STILL HAS IT.ANOTHER PROBLEM IS LENNON AND TOWNSEND NEITHER CAN CROSS A BALL.SO MUCH FOR THE SPURS COACHING STAFF.

Surely, every 1st team match played will quickly add to the necessary experience Harry needs. Just as important as experience, skill and know-how is the drive, determination and courage that comes from the feel of being a Spurs player at heart having come up through the ranks. Another new ‘maestro’ coming next season in who scored 30 in another league is no guarantee of anything…

Funny that he scored on the weekend though, isn’t it. And a cracker in the cup…

I was a bit dubious about Kane but here he did well. He got into some good positions early on but looked nervous. As the game progressed he grew in confidence, especially after his goal. I’m still not convinced but he has done enough to start next game.

I have followed his progression through the ranks with interest and hope. NOT good enough for top level yet but after a few years in the championship will return to the premier the finished article. Probably needs to go to a club like Nottingham Forest or Ipswich to make his name. Staying at spurs on the periphery will only put his career back.
