‘We are just on his side’: Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez offers support to Harry Kane amid Man City links
The Premier League summer transfer window has largely centered around Harry Kane.
The forward has been heavily linked with Manchester City, with reports of a second bid being prepared by the Sky Blues emerging last week:

Before this, there were rumours that the striker had refused to turn up to training. Claims denied by Kane himself:

But the damage does look to have been done, with Spurs fans letting their feelings on Kane’s transfer saga be known during their win over the aforementioned Man City at the weekend:

Davinson Sanchez speaks out
However, whilst the sentiment from the Spurs faithful towards Kane does look to be turning sour, the view of the Tottenham players has seemingly not changed.
Davinson Sanchez has spoken out about Harry Kane and his current situation in a recent interview.
And whilst he would not go into too much detail, the centre-back did state that they (the players) are here to support Kane and that they are always going to be on his side:
“I’m his team mate so I can’t get deep on the situation because it’s a situation that it’s being discussed between Harry and the people above. We are just here to support him and if something happens then we are always going to be on his side.”
Sanchez then went on to praise Kane’s professionalism:
“If he has the chance to be with us on the pitch then of course he’s going to help us, there’s no doubt about it.
“Everybody here knows just how professional he is and no-one can have any doubts about how good he is as a player, how good he is as a person and his professionalism, as I say.
“We are just on his side and any decision that happens or he makes then we are going to support him because he gives everything for the club. In my position, he helps me a lot as a player and as a captain he’s been very humble and is a very good person.
“I could keep going, I will never stop about how good he is as a person.”
