´Kane to Newcastle? I would love it!´

The thought of Harry Kane joining Newcastle United prompted a Kevin Keegan impression from Rob Lee, who told Stats Perform: “I would love it!”

Kane’s Tottenham visit St James’ Park on Sunday for Newcastle’s first game since their takeover was approved.

Widely unpopular owner Mike Ashley has been replaced by a consortium fronted by Amanda Staveley, whose PCP Capital Partners has purchased 10 per cent of the club, and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF).

The PIF, which bought 80 per cent of Newcastle, has become the richest football club owner in the world, prompting links to a host of high-profile signings.

Kane has not been among those, but he pushed for a move away from Spurs ahead of this season.

The England captain has scored five Premier League goals at St James’ Park as a visiting player, yet ex-Newcastle skipper Lee, who was signed by Keegan in 1992, would like to see him turning out on Tyneside on a more regular basis.

He told Stats Perform: “I would love to see him at Newcastle. I would love it, absolutely love it.”

Kane has not scored in the league yet this season, his six-game barren run his longest since a sequence of eight goalless games back in 2014.

His streak of netting in England qualifiers also ended at 15 matches on Tuesday when he failed to find a way past Hungary’s Peter Gulacsi.

There are concerns Kane has not recovered from his failure to secure a move to Manchester City, which is understandable to Lee.

“It depends on what’s gone on behind the scenes,” he said. “We don’t know what’s gone on.

“I don’t know him at all, but it seems to me like he’s a level-headed guy, and he’s not one to make a fuss.

“If he had an agreement with Daniel Levy of some sort, then I’m sure he did. And if someone’s gone back on that, then obviously he’s going to be a little bit peed off.”

Whether Newcastle or City, though, Lee still believes Kane is worth whatever fee it would take to prise him away from Tottenham.

“I still expect him to play to the best of his ability. For him to come out and say, ‘I want to leave’, surely he thought it was sorted,” Lee said.

“Whatever you pay for Harry Kane, whether it’s £150million, it’s worth every penny.”
