Cape Town - Tottenham Hotsput hit-man Harry Kane has set himself the target of reaching a century of Premier League goals by the end of 2017/18.

The 23-year-old scored four against Leicester City and a hat-trick against Hull City to take him to an incredible 78 league goals in 116 appearances for Spurs, clinching the Golden Boot this season.

Only 26 players have reached 100 goals in the history of the Premier League. Kane told the BBC, "It would be a fantastic achievement. I said to someone the other day it would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season.

"The biggest thing I'm proud of is that I had two big injuries and was out for 11 weeks (with injury) so to still be there at the top of the Premier League and to score 30-plus goals (in all competitions) is a big achievement."

Seven goals in his past six league matches took him to the top of the league scoring charts, four ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku at the conclusion of the season.

Kane won the Premier League golden boot last season, and successfully defended his throne.
