Accolades keep rolling in for Harry Kane. After a spectacular 2014-15 where he emerged from Spurs' academy to become one of the best strikers in the Premier League, he's now getting nice things said about him from former players. Take Teddy Sheringham, for example, who pretty much said Kane is better than he was in quotes given to the Daily Star.

"[Kane]'s an outstanding player. As for being like me, I think he's probably got a little bit more than me.

He can do everything I could do but he's got a bit of pace as well. He can go a long way.

He's just signed a new contract. That should keep him there for the next few years and that's good news for him and for Tottenham.

Is [Tottenham] the right place for him? Without a doubt. The game is all about timing. Sometimes you can leave a club too early and join a bigger club when the timing isn't quite right."

Teddy certainly knows a thing or two about scoring goals, so this is high praise. He's is a Tottenham legend, scoring 98 goals in 236 appearances for the club, and is a former player beloved to most Spurs fans. Sheringham is currently player-manager for League Two side Stevenage, having registered himself as a Stevenage player at age 49 last month.

Kane is sitting on thirteen goals in all competitions this season but hasn't scored in the Premier League since bagging a brace against West Ham on November 22.
