New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has broken his silence on the topic.
“It is not that I don’t want to comment — all this issue related to Harry, I believe we should discuss internally among us and try to avoid any kind of public argument or discussion about it,” said Nuno.
“Us, we have to focus on what is important. We have to solve the situation but first between us. We solve the situation internally with the club. Speaking and trying to reach a better solution and conclusion to this situation.”
When asked if he had communicated with Kane yet but Nuno said this would be happening soon.
“The answer I will give you is I expect to speak with Harry soon and I haven’t had the chance yet,” he said. “Anything in relation to Harry is internal so first of all we have to first of all solve the problems ourselves and then I will speak with you.”
Bayern want Spurs target
Tottenham had been linked with a move for RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.
The Austrian international has impressed with his time in Germany and at 27, and a year left on his deal, is looking at pastures new.
