  • Harry Kane signs new six-year contract with Tottenham

Kane has reportedly seen his wages rise to £200k a week in his new deal, something which could set the club back up to £62.4m over the duration of his contract.

However, his commitment is a delight for the Spurs fans, who will be hoping to break their trophyless streak next season.

They are due to move into the ground next season after playing last season's home matches as Wembley Stadium.

The English Premier League side announced in a statement that the 24-year-old striker has put pen to paper on a new six-year contract, reports Xinhua news agency.

Being able to tie their prized asset down to a huge new deal, just days after manager Mauricio Pochettino committed his future to the club for the long term, is likely to be massive for Spurs going forward.

'I think great centre forwards just have to be single minded, they are a little bit different.

He further continued,"I'm really excited".

Kane established himself as a first-team regular for Spurs in 2014-15 but had thoughts it would not happen during hard spells in the lower leagues.

Securing Pochettino to an £8.5 million-a-year contract was key to Kane's decision to stay, despite interest from Real Madrid.

Now Tottenham have a forward who has scored at least 25 goals in the Premier League alone in each of his last three seasons. "I enjoy watching them, they are great to watch, very entertaining", he added.

Asserting that he is looking forward to the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, the 24-year-old said he wants to do well with Tottenham next season. He became the Club's leading scorer in the Premier League era, surpassing Teddy Sheringham's total of 97, while he has also joined the elite group of players to score 100 Premier League goals, doing so in just 141 games.
