Kane set for bumper new Spurs deal


The 22-year-old striker is expected to sign a new deal which will double his current £50 000-a-week salary and smash Spurs’ existing ceiling of about £80 000 per week.

England striker Kane signed his current, five-year contract last February. However, after following up last term’s 31 goals with another 28 so far this year, he will be duly rewarded for his efforts.

While a new deal may not be reached before the prolific hitman heads to France for the European Championship, Sportsmail understands that all parties are relaxed about the situation and there is little doubt on either side that an agreement will be reached over the course of the summer.

The news is likely to come as a blow for potential suitors, including Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who have both scouted the striker, as well as Manchester United, who were strongly linked with the boyhood Tottenham fan last season.

It is, however, a huge boost for Tottenham, who saw their hopes of winning their first top-flight championship in 55 years evaporate during a foul-strewn 2-2 draw against Chelsea at

Stamford Bridge on Monday night. Tottenham’s Argentininan boss Mauricio Pochettino has verbally agreed a new five-year contract and several key players are set to follow his lead at a club who have a philosophy of rewarding success.

Midfielder Christian Eriksen is expected to sign a four-and-a-half-year deal that could see him take home as much as £80,000 per week.

Talks are also expected to take place with Argentinian playmaker Erik Lamela, who has been in fine form after struggling to make an impact in his first two seasons at White Hart Lane.

New England man Dele Alli, 20, signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal in January worth £25,000 per week but both he and fellow England midfielder Eric Dier, 22, who is also on a long-term deal, could be given additional pay rises after their rapid progression.– Daily Mail
