Harry Kane: I want to stay at Tottenham for my whole career

Just when you thought you couldn't love this man any more...

Harry Kane really does know how to tickle the heart's of Tottenham fans. His latest interview with Sky Sports is no exception.

Spurs superstar striker recently sat down with Jamie Redknapp of Sky for an exclusive interview covering a broad range of topics. He's said similar things before, but it's always nice to hear Harry reiterate just how much he loves the club.

I'd love to stay here. The club is in great shape at the moment, and we're going forward as a club, and that's important."

As long as there's a vision with the club, and we're not stale, we're going forward as a club. At the moment, we're an excited group of young players with a great manager, great training ground and a new stadium coming too."

I'd love to stay here for the rest of my career. We'll just have to see what happens.

Awww Harry, we really like you too.

Cynics will claim that this is an easy thing for a player to say, but how many players say it as often as Harry does? I can't think of any. He's still young, and of course anything could happen, but there's potential here for him to be like Ledley King or Francesco Totti by becoming a legend and a one-club-man.

Last season's golden boot winner also made it clear that Spurs were determined not to settle for a top four finish this season.

We're confident in our ability. We're there to be right at the top and fight for the title again.

Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club. The gaffer doesn't feel like we needed that. He was happy with his squad.

He added a couple of great signings, and we're happy. We've been getting better every year, but for us it's just about staying focused.

There's a lot of talk about the Uniteds, the Citys, the Chelseas, the new managers, new players, and we're happy for people to talk about them, we'll just do what we do each week."

Mauricio Pochettino has surely used some of the media hype, surrounding changes at Chelsea, City and United, to establish a nice chip on his player's shoulder's as the season gets underway. But you also get the sense that Spurs are content to slide under the radar, as they did for much of last season.

Kane also spoke about his and England's disappointing summer at the Euros.

I felt fresh, as fresh as I did all season, and as I do now. It's just one of those things, maybe the ball isn't dropping for you or you're missing out by a yard in front of goal.

There's nothing we can do about it now other than learn about it.

They even asked him about Roy Hodgson's infamous decision to put Harry on corner kicks.

I think it got blown out of proportion a bit. Because the team wasn't performing how we wanted it to, there's always going to be someone or something they look to.

Look, if the gaffer asks me to do it, if Pochettino asked me to do it, I'd have done it. It's just something that didn't go great, but it isn't the end of the world. There's strikers before me who have taken free-kicks and corners, it's just one of those things.

The full interview will air on Sky Sports in the UK before the Liverpool game tomorrow.
