Harry Kane gave a huge boost to Tottenham Hotspur on Friday by signing a new six year contract through to 2024 with the Premier League club.
The 24-year-old striker scored a personal best 41 goals this season and had been mentioned as a possible target for European champions Real Madrid with other clubs also lurking in the wings.
Some had speculated Kane would want a move away so he could win some silverware as despite Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino gaining plaudits for the attractive style of football they play they are yet to win a trophy under him since he took over in 2014.
“We are delighted to announce that Harry Kane has signed a new six-year contract with the Club, which will run until 2024,” read a statement from Spurs on their website.
Kane — who may have been inspired to commit himself after Pochettino signed a five year contract in late May — said it was exciting times for the players at the club as apart from seeking a title they are also looking forward to moving into their new state of the art stadium having had to paly their home matches at Wembley last season.
“I’m really excited, it’s a proud day,” Kane told the club website.
“Obviously it’s been a great few seasons and I’m looking forward to the future.
“I’m looking forward to the new stadium first and foremost and just to keep progressing as a Club.
“It’s been fantastic to consistently get in the Champions League so I’m really excited to have another go at that.
“For us as a Club, it’s just about keeping improving and we’ll work hard to do that.”
