London - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has made it clear that he has no plans to leave the club and added that he doesn’t expect any of his team-mates to do so either. 

Kane and Dele Alli are just two of the several Tottenham players that have been linked with high-profile clubs in Europe. 

However, after signing a new contract this season, Kane insisted that he is staying put. 

"I'd be surprised if any of my team-mates would go now,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Something is happening here and we just need to take that last step, which is to win trophies.

"It would be stupid to leave now. We've got one of the best coaches in the world [Mauricio Pochettino] maybe the best. We'll have a new stadium soon. The future is bright."

Like Kane, Alli also recently penned a new deal to stay at Tottenham, and Kane is confident that the 20-year-old will not be going anywhere else anytime soon. 

"Tottenham is the right place for him, even if many other clubs want him,” he said. "We've got a great future and he is part of it, so there is no reason for him to leave.

"You've got to decide between earning a lot or following your own ambitions and playing in the best league in the world and winning titles. I don't see any reason why we can't win the Premier League."

Alli is rumoured to have caught the eye of Spanish giants, Real Madrid who are eyeing a mega-deal swoop for the England international.

The former MK Dons player has scored 20 league goals since the 2015/16 season which is the most for any Premier League midfielder with no other player under the age of 23 across Europe's top five leagues having scored more.
