Harry Kane Signs New Six Year Deal

Kane Signs

Spurs fans around the world collectively sigh in relief as the club has today announced that their talisman Harry Kane has signed a new contract which will keep him contracted to Tottenham until 2024.

After a fantastic ’17/18 season, Kane’s new deal is rumoured to see him double his wages. According to the Daily Mail, the deal is potentially worth up to £90m

Kane’s signature comes just weeks after Spurs’ manager, Mauricio Pochettino, also signed a new deal. Pochettino’s contract was extended to 2023 which has made him one of the highest paid managers in Europe.

Following Pochettino’s extension, it was thought by many that this summer was to be the window in which Levy, the clubs executive chairman, was to financially back his manager and potentially break the notorious wage structure that had plagued the club for so long. The rumoured wages of both Kane and Pochettino would seem to suggest this is indeed the case.

Goalkeeper Michele Vorm also has had a contract extension activated, seeing him remain at the club until 2019.

Confirmation

The news was also an opportunity for the club to reveal the progress of their new stadium. In typical Millennial fashion, the news was announced via the clubs twitter page, in which a video unveiled the contract extension upon the ground’s new big screens. See below for the tweet.

More To Follow?

It seems there are more to follow the England Captain. Eriksen, Lloris and Alli are all expected to put pen to paper before the end of the summer window. This news squashes any fears they may be wanting away from Pochettino’s project, with them all seen as key assets as Spurs move into their new ground.

The question these contract extensions and wage increases raise for Spurs fans is why is the Aldeweireld situation not being sorted? I’m sure the Toby saga is far from over for Tottenham. But today will certainly be a day of rejoicing for Spurs fans.

Whether the club will make any marquee signings heading into the new stadium is yet unknown, but they have made smart business before the World Cup to ensure their stars will be there to play Champions League football next year.
