Maddison and Harry Training

New Tottenham signing James Maddison would “love” for Harry Kane to stay at the club.

England striker Kane has been linked with a transfer to Bayern Munich this summer and has one year remaining on his Spurs deal. But the Bundesliga giants have seen an offer of over £81million rejected by Tottenham

Bayern chiefs travelled to London this week for face-to-face negotiations with Spurs chief Daniel Levy. But so far, Kane remains in north London.

And that is where Maddison, who joined Spurs this summer from relegated Leicester for £40m, wants Kane to stay.


Speaking at the TNT Sports start of season event in London, Maddison said: “We were friends before I joined Tottenham from the England squad, we have similar interests and get on well anyway away from football.

would love Harry Kane to stay, he’s the best No9 in the world in my opinion. But what will be will be and Harry is super professional.

“It hasn’t been a distraction, Harry is super professional. I won’t go into details because I don’t know anything and let’s be respectful about Harry’s situation.

“Everyone knows what Harry Kane is like, he’s a super professional guy and whatever club he is at, whenever he goes into training he gives 100%.”


Maddison joined Tottenham having impressed at Leicester, despite the Foxes being relegated from the Premier League.

The ex-Norwich midfielder is arguably Tottenham’s first natural creator since Christian Eriksen with only Kevin de Bruyne and Trent Alexander-Arnold creating more opportunities in the last five seasons.

Upon joining Spurs, he said: “I’m here to win. I know a lot of people talk a lot about how long it’s been since Tottenham won a trophy. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe we could win.

“I know from the manager and the quality of the other players in the squad that we have what it takes to win. That mentality, wanting to win, trying to win. That’s what I saw so far so I’m definitely here to win.”
