Harry Kane has confirmed that he is “100 per cent focused” on Tottenham and will not be leaving the club during this transfer window.
The England captain has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City since admitting in May he had reached a “crossroads” in his Spurs career.
Kane was not included in Tottenham’s squad for their first two games of the season as the speculation mounted, but he returned as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s win at Wolves.
The 28-year-old, who is under contract until June 2024, took to social media on Wednesday to declare that he will not be going anywhere before the transfer window closes on August 31.
“It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks,” he said.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success. #COYS”

Kane finished as the leading goalscorer (23) and provided the most assists (14) in the Premier League last term, but could only help Spurs to a disappointing seventh-placed finish.
Talk of a possible big-money switch to City surfaced soon after, while Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United were also rumoured to have shown an interest.
City were always considered to be the frontrunners to sign Kane, however, with boss Pep Guardiola recently admitting the champions would be keen if Spurs were open to offers.
