The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have not been at all shy in making clear their backing for star attacker Harry Kane this evening, during the club’s meeting with Pacos de Ferreira.
City links The name of hitman Kane has of course taken centre stage in the media across the summer to date.
This comes with the English international having actively sought out a move away from North London, in search of major silverware.
#THFC are now making enquiries about replacement centre-forwards, in the first indication that the club are willing to consider the feelings of their 27-year-old talisman.

A whole host of clubs, in turn, were inevitably tipped to launch an offensive for the English international.
It quickly became clear, though, that if Kane did indeed manage to secure a Spurs exit ahead of the new season, it would be for one club and one club only – Manchester City.
The Premier League champions were understood to have identified the 28-year-old as the ideal replacement for Sergio Aguero, with multiple big-money offers having therefore been touted:
EXCL. Manchester City are not giving up on Harry Kane deal. Man City board preparing a new bid for €150m – if Spurs stance will change 🔵🏴 #MCFC

‘One of our own’ In the end, however, those in a position of power in North London stood firm, leaving Kane with little choice but to commit his future, for the time being at least, to the Lilywhites:
It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks. 👏⚽
I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success. #COYS pic.twitter.com/uTN78tHlk1

The Englishman, in turn, was handed his first start of the 2021/22 campaign this evening.
Spurs are currently facing off against Pacos de Ferreira in the English capital, in the 2nd-leg of their Europa Conference League qualifier against the Portuguese outfit.
And, unsurprisingly, it is Kane who has gone on to steal the headlines.
First, the home support in attendance at the clash made crystal clear that, despite his exit attempts, they remain fully behind the club’s star man:
Now the whole stadium is singing “Harry Kane, he’s one of our own” during an early break in play and he applauds them in return. Almost scored within seconds of kick off as well but just lifted it over the bar.

And Kane has since gone on to repay the Tottenham faithful, netting a brace inside the opening 45 minutes to overturn a first-leg deficit, and send the Lilywhites well on their way towards the Conference League proper.
Harry Kane doubles Spurs’ lead and puts them in front on aggregate! ⚪
