Loan Spells

England have historically been endowed with strikers of great repute, and Harry Kane is poised to emulate the legendary status that many of his previous predecessors have attained on the international stage.

The 24-year-old’s rise to prominence occurred in the manner that many of today’s budding prospects follow, through spending multiple loan spells at various levels on the football pyramid.

Many questioned his capacity to thrive at the highest level, considering that his form was comparatively average during his respective careers with Leyton Orient, Millwall, Leicester City and Norwich City.

This isn’t to discredit his efforts at these clubs, yet the statistics he achieved during his period away from Spurs weren’t illustrative of a player who was primed to conquer and excel on the international stage.

In 65 appearances on loan Harry Kane amassed a total 4 goals. These statistics aren’t indicative of a striker who has established himself as one of the very best in world football, that’s exactly what Harry Kane has achieved since receiving consistent first-team involvement in the 2013-14 season. While that was the season that the Englishman rose to eminence among the Spurs squad, it is the preceding seasons that have been so pivotal to his development as a player.

Making his mark as a Tottenham Player
In his first three full seasons as a Tottenham player, the 24-year-old has attained a truly remarkable total of goals. During that time the Spurs striker scored a wonderful tally of 94 goals in 139 appearances, an average of 0.7 goals per game. These statistics are illustrative of his capacity to shine in the conceivably the most competitive league in world football, he’s attained the same status that the likes of Eden Hazard has achieved in the Premier League.

While these numbers are magnificent in their own right, the Englishman is improving upon the average he attained in those three full seasons. Kane has scored six goals in seven league games for the Whites while amassing 11 goals in nine appearances in all competitions.

To enhance the attainments that Kane has achieved, he also registered his first ever hat-trick in the Champions League having scored all three goals in Spurs’ triumph against Apoel.

Whatever the enormity of the challenge that the Spurs striker has faced, he has supressed them with consummate ease and exemplary professionalism. He’s also been exceedingly successful in transforming his club form onto the international stage.

Since earning his first international cap in 2015, the Englishman has amassed a terrific goal-scoring record. The 24-year-old flaunts a total of 11 goals in 22 games for the England national team, an average of a goal every two games.His significance to England is sufficiently demonstrated by the fact that five of his goals have been the opening goals in games, providing his team with the lead and the momentum that ensues from scoring the first goal.

In simplistic and rather understated terms, Harry Kane is a world-class attacker who has testified his aptitude to flourish at any given level. Thus, he requires a team that equals his pedigree on the global stage.

There’s no refuting that Spurs are an incredibly refined team, furnished with a whole host of reputable and distinguished talent, yet they’ve fail to reflect the standard that Harry Kane should be representing.

Tottenham haven’t won the league for 56 years, and they haven’t won a trophy since their league cup triumph against Chelsea in the 2007-08 season. If Mauricio Pochettino’s side fail to win a trophy this season, it will constitute ten years since their last success. Harry Kane has the capability to feature for the very best teams in club football, yet at the age of 24 he has failed to win a single club honour throughout the entirety of his career. Kane possesses the necessary traits to play alongside the very best such as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo . The Englishman is favourite with the bookmakers to win the goalscorer this season.

Why Kane needs to Maximise his career prospects.The qualities that Kane exhibits are of the highest standard and to ensure that he can maximise his career prospects he must join a club who are actively competing for trophies. While Spurs have forged creditable title charges in recent seasons, their form has failed to transpire into trophies. Their efforts have been exceedingly commendable, yet have been inadequate to achieve silverware.

With Karim Benzema approaching the age of 30, and with his goal-scoring tally slowly receding, Harry Kane is seemingly the perfect fit to replace a striker of the Frenchman’s distinguished calibre.

If Spurs fail to win a trophy this season, Harry Kane should depart for pastures new.
