Nuno declares Kane transfer saga 'FINISHED' after he confirmed he is staying

Nuno Espirito Santo has hailed Harry Kane’s decision to stay at Tottenham for the immediate future, declared the saga “finished” and expects to see him motivated for the season ahead.

'Great news,' said Spurs boss Nuno, after Kane's statement on social media. 'Fantastic news for everybody. It is finished, Harry is going to be with us. It is good that this issue is over and we can proceed as normal.

'We are all very happy. One of the best players in the world. We are all delighted to have one more option for the season ahead of us. I spoke to him just like I speak to all the players and said, 'let's get ready to help the team'.'

Kane trained with the team ahead of the second leg of the Europa Conference League play-off against Pacos de Ferreira on Thursday. Spurs trail 1-0 after the first leg.

'He worked today and he is an option for tomorrow, let's see,' said Nuno. 'Since Harry joined us, he has been working, so this is what we value. His attitude in training sessions has been great.

'It is up to us and everybody, the player himself, to get his motivation. There should not be any kind of doubts in terms of motivation to play for Spurs, an amazing club, good team.

'We are in a process and we need everybody involved.'

England captain Kane has made little secret of his desire to leave Tottenham in pursuit of his professional ambitions to win trophies and play in the Champions League.

At 28, he has been eying a move to Manchester City but he has three years left on his contract and the Premier League champions have failed to come close to the £160million asking price.

Kane has resigned himself to staying at Spurs for the time being although, in his statement, he referred only to the summer and did not commit for the entire season.

'I am not worried at all,' said Nuno. 'It's day by day. He's an option for tomorrow and this is the only thing and this is my only thought, to try and make the best decisions to help the team tomorrow and Harry is one of the options.'

Goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini said the confirmation of Kane's decision to stay had been well received in the dressing room.

'We are all very happy,' said Gollini. 'You know how good Harry is as a player and how important he is for this club and this team. For me, he is definitely one of the best strikers in the world so it is very big and important news for us and for Tottenham fans.'
