Glenn Hoddle says Harry Kane wants to win trophies with Tottenham but feels no Spurs supporter would blame him should he choose to depart from the north London club.

The Tottenham and England captain has become one of the world’s most revered strikers while at Tottenham with an impressive total of 215 goals in 327 appearances.

Despite his impressive individual record, Kane is still yet to land a single trophy at his boyhood club and after Jose Mourinho’s side’s shock Europa League exit, the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City in April is their only chance of silverware this season.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid said to be interested in acquiring his services.

Although Tottenham legend Hoddle believes winning trophies is at the forefront of Kane’s mind, he feels he will want to do that with his current club.

‘Harry is a winner,’ Hoddle wrote in his column for the Evening Standard.

‘In meeting him and knowing him, he is a winner. He will want to win things, but he will want that to be at Tottenham. So there are a lot of ‘wants’ in there.

‘Everyone respects Alan Shearer no end, he won the Premier League at Blackburn but when he went to Newcastle, his club, it did not quite happen for him. He would have loved to have won something at Newcastle and I think Harry is exactly the same at Tottenham.

‘You cannot judge players only on what they have won. There are players nowhere near as good as Harry Kane who have won five League medals and whatever. But, as a winner, he deserves to look back on his career having won something.

‘Tottenham’s Carabao Cup Final against Manchester City, for Harry Kane, for the team, for Daniel Levy, for the crossroads of Tottenham, is such a big game. It can be done, you can beat Manchester City in a one-off game, no doubt.

‘If that happens then that might make Harry think it might be a stepping stone for more trophies and I think he would love to stay at Tottenham.’

However, should a top team come calling, Hoddle feels Kane can’t be blamed for jumping ship.

‘But if you have the best teams in the world, offering the best money and opportunities of winning silverware, it has got to turn his head a little bit,’ Hoddle added.

‘No-one would blame him if he did leave Tottenham. Even the ardent Spurs fans would understand if that happened. This match against City is such a big thing for the club.’
