Harry Kane jeered at Molineux as he is named on Spurs bench - in pictures

Nuno Espirito Santo's team take on Wolves on Sunday

Harry Kane was named in Tottenham's squad for their Premier League clash against Wolves on Sunday, with the star striker receiving a less than warm welcome while entering the Molineux on Sunday.

England captain Kane did not take part in the Spurs' opening games of the season as did not have the desired fitness following late return to pre-season training. However, he was named on the bench as Nuno Espirito Santo named an unchanged team from the one that defeated Manchester City 1-0.

Kane had also missed the Europa Conference League play-off first leg match against Pacos de Ferreira.

The 28-year-old did not enjoy a great welcome on Sunday although the Press Association reported that the jeers he received were mainly from Wolves fans.

Understandably, murmurs of a potential move to Manchester City have refused to die down. Kane was late in joining the main group for pre-season training as he had to complete his mandatory quarantine following his holiday in the Bahamas and Florida.

There were reports that Kane stayed away from pre-season training in order to force a move to league champions City. However, Kane insisted he had “never refused” to train.
