Harry Kane’s superb form for Tottenham this season has earned him a new five-and-a-half-year contract at White Hart Lane.

The 21-year-old only signed a new deal in August but his 20 goals in all competitions have earned him improved terms and a contract until 2020.

Kane’s goalscoring form in the cup competitions prompted manager Mauricio Pochettino to give the academy graduate a run in the Premier League and he has not looked back, netting 10 league goals, including braces against Chelsea and, on Saturday, West Brom.

Kane, who was born in Walthamstow and a boyhood Spurs fan, has become a big favourite for Tottenham supporters, who hail him as ‘one of our own’.

He made his first-team debut in the Europa League in August 2011 after a spell on loan at Leyton Orient and scored his first goal in the same competition that December.

Further loan spells with Millwall, Norwich and Leicester followed, with mixed success, before his breakthrough back at Tottenham last season.

After mostly having to make do with appearances in the cups, Kane scored his first Premier League goal on his first start against Sunderland last April.

He scored in the following two games as well and kept his place until the end of the season.

Speaking about the potential of a new contract for Kane following Saturday’s 3-0 win at The Hawthorns, Pochettino said: ”This is a club decision and the player’s decision.

“This is business, but Harry wants to stay with Tottenham and Tottenham want Harry to stay long term.”

Kane’s superb form is expected to earn him a first call-up to the full England squad after success with the age-group sides.

He has played at every level from under-17 and has netted eight times in 10 appearances for the under-21s.
