Harry Kane backed to stay at Tottenham Hotspur if they sign quality players in the near future
Harry Kane has been backed by Alan Hutton to stay at Tottenham Hotspur if the club recruits well in the upcoming transfer windows.
The England international, who is captaining his country at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, is on a contract that expires in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt). Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and Aston Villa defender said:
“I think it all depends on their recruitment. Who they bring in, are they building for the future, does he want to be part of that. If he sees them going in the right way then I think he will stay.”
“He is about to turn 30, it is possibly his last chance for a big move for him. He has got lots of football left in his legs. I would like to see him stay and have Tottenham continue to build round him.“
Hutton said that perhaps Kane stayed at Spurs in the past two transfer windows as he thought that the club was heading in the right direction with manager Antonio Conte’s arrival. If Spurs continue down that path when it comes to recruitment, Kane could stay for longer.
Spurs must keep Kane
That’s what Hutton thinks, and one can’t fault him for his viewpoint. Spurs signed Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski in the January transfer window from Juventus, with the latter arriving on an initial loan deal.
The two deals came so late in the window that some would have thought they were our ‘Plan B signings’. They have been brilliant, however, and are a crucial part of Conte’s team now.
This summer, we made a truckload of signings. But how many of them instantly strengthened our starting XI? Perhaps only Ivan Perisic playing down the left flank but we did loan out a decent left-back in Sergio Reguilon to accommodate him.
Richarlison has been great since arriving from Everton but on paper, he adds to the depth in a manner that Steven Bergwijn did – a like-for-like replacement? One can perhaps call it that.

Spurs will do well to keep Conte and Kane at the club for the next few years and one way to do that is to strengthen the team in several positions. It’s time we target quality over quantity. A centre-back and a right-wing-back would be the ideal spots to strengthen.
