He stressed that there has not been any contact with the club in any form. According to the 27-year-old English forward, he only had contact with his agent once since the competition started and all his agent said to him was to wish him good luck.
Harry Kane took his time to explain that Charlie, his agent who is also his brother has never brought any transfer issues from either Tottenham or any other club to him while he is on international duty with England.
The 27-year-old forward had been under criticism for not doing enough in the ongoing European Championship. He played in the 3 group games in Euro 2020 and did not score a goal despite being the point man of the team.
Hence, most of the football fans believe that he is currently struggling in the tournament because his mind is not settled with his current club, Tottenham Hotspur.
Recall that before the European Championship started on June 11, 2021, Harry Kane reportedly told Tottenham Hotspur that he was interested in leaving the club this summer. He has argued that he wants to win titles and Tottenham Hotspur seem unready to give him such an opportunity.
Yet, Tottenham Hotspur are not ready to let him go this summer. Recently, it was reported that the Premier League club rejected a 100 million pound offer from Manchester City for the services of the striker. This is seen as a sign that Tottenham Hotspur are willing to keep Harry Kane at the club as long as possible.
As Tottenham are battling to keep Harry Kane, the club has been battling to get a new coach. Since April when Spurs sacked coach Jose Mourinho, the club has not been able to appoint a permanent coach.
This means that Tottenham Hotspur are yet to have a direction with less than two months to the beginning of the 2021-2022 season. Hence, it is believed that all these issues are influencing the performance of Harry Kane in Euro 2020.
But Kane said: “To be honest, I feel like when I come away with England I’m just fully focused on England.
“My brother is my agent, but the only time I’ve spoken to my brother really over the last few weeks is, ‘Good luck, let’s get a win, and let’s take England all the way’.
“After the games, I’ll have one of the club physios just checking up, making sure that everything is okay, but other than that, not really (any contact). I have good luck messages and things like that but nothing to do with the personal stuff with the club really.
“So, it doesn’t really bother me about the outside noise. When I’m here I’m with the boys, I try to help the boys, be a leader in the team. I need to get to know the boys, see what makes certain players tick, and helping the younger lads, so I feel like I’ve got enough on my plate to worry about anything outside of England.
“That’s where I’m at and of course I feel like it’s one of them where if you’re not scoring as a striker, people look for every little angle why you’re not scoring and that’s probably the case in this tournament so far.
“But like I said, as long as I’m focused, I’ve got the self-belief I have, I’m not worried about anyone else.
“If I’m totally honest I don’t really read anything, no media.
“The most important thing is about us as a group and us a staff and as a nation and when you are in these tournament modes, sometimes it’s easy to get caught away with other stuff, but the experience I’ve had in the last few tournaments is just to focus on this and do what you can at the moment and leave no regrets.”
Harry Kane who won the Golden Boot award in the just concluded 2020-2021 Premier League season, is expected to be in action on June 29 when England face Germany in the Euro 2020 round of 16 game at Wembley Stadium.

Kane’s current contract with Tottenham will expire in June 2024 which means that whether the striker likes it or not, his fate is still in the hands of the Premier League club.
