England and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has signed a new contract with the club. The new contract will keep the 23-year-old at White Hart Lane until 2022.
Kane was Premier League’s top scorer last season with 25 goals. Talks were ongoing since the summer for a contract extension. The new deal will extend the striker’s stay in London by a further two years.
The man from Chingford, England will reportedly receive $126,500-a-week in the new deal. This replaces the earlier contract he signed with the club in February, 2015, according to BBC.
“It’s amazing. Everyone knows how much I love this team and what I feel for this club. To sign another contract is a special feeling. We’ve got a great, young squad and the club is moving in the right direction.” Kane said to Tottenham’s official website.
Harry Kane has missed 10 matches this season due to an ankle injury. However, the striker has still found the net six times in 10 appearances for Tottenham, as reported by Squawka.
The Tottenham youth-academy product is latest in the line of players committing to White Hart Lane. Christian Eriksen, Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Harry Winks, all have agreed fresh contracts with the club.
Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham manager was delighted with Kane signing a new deal. The 44-year-old expressed his delight ahead of the Premier League clash against Swansea City on Saturday.
“It’s important for us, for the club. It’s great news. We are very happy because he is showing his commitment to the club. It’s important for the player to be calm in their mind and focus on playing and improving every day.” Pochettino said.
Kane made his debut in 2011 after coming through the Tottenham youth ranks. However, it was not until the 2013-14 season when he had a serious impact in the Premier League.
The England international made his arrival to the big stage by scoring 21 goals in the Premier League, the following season. Kane has scored 70 goals in 137 appearances for Spurs until now.
