Sir Geoff Hurst expresses his opinions on Tottenham star Harry Kane transfer
In conversation with talkSPORT (h/t Express), retired English footballer Sir Geoff Hurst had made his thoughts known about Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane and his transfer debacle in the last window.
The 28-year-old striker has been one of Tottenham Hotspurs star players in the last few years. He has stepped up on the big occasions and has cemented a place in the hearts of the fans. Despite being a dependable asset in the last few years, the English striker has failed to score for Spurs in the Premier League this season.
There had been a lot of rumours surrounding Kane and his immediate future. Manchester City came knocking for the striker but the club refused to let go of the player.
The 28-year-old started the match against Aston Villa but could not get himself on the scoresheet. A strike in the first half from Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and a Matt Target own goal helped Spurs gain their first victory in four games in England’s top-flight league as they recorded a 2-1 wim against the Villans.
The Tottenham faithful will be pleased that their club has got back to winning ways but the Harry Kane conundrum still looms large. Sir Geoff Hurst has opined that Spurs should let go of the player and it could be a win-win situation for both the parties involved. The 79-year-old ex-English footballer made his thoughts known about the whole saga while speaking to talkSPORT (h/t Express).
“The thing I would say about the Spurs situation, quite clearly, they should let Harry Kane go. Keeping a player who wants to move on, and maybe deserves an opportunity playing in the Champions League. Keeping him there with resistance is not necessarily good for the player and not necessarily good for the club. I think they should move him on, personally. Let’s get this right, I’m not being detrimental about Spurs or the club.”

Kane has been an instrumental part of Tottenham’s attacking threat but a difficult start to the season and the lure of playing in the UEFA Champions League could mean that the English international may depart to another top club in the recent future.
