Tottenham striker Harry Kane revealed he might end up leaving the Spurs if they don’t develop into title challengers.

During a question and answer session with former Tottenham and Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp on Instagram, Kane said he will have to think about leaving the club if they don't progress as a team.

“Obviously I get asked this question a lot. It’s one of them things. I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no,” Kane said.

“I love Spurs, but it’s one of them things. I’ve always said if I don’t feel progress in the team or it’s [not] going the right direction then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better. I want to become one of the top top players.

“It all depends what happens with the team and how we progress as a team.

“So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever but it’s not a no either.”

Tottenham have struggled since reaching the Champions League final last season with Mauricio Pochettino getting replaced by Jose Mourinho, who is already under immense pressure.


Clubs introduce pay cuts


Kane has been injured since New Year’s Day, but is back in training.

Meanwhile, Kane believes the current Premier League season should be scrapped if it cannot be completed by the end of June.

The Tottenham and England captain insists Premier League bosses "will do everything they can" to complete the campaign. But the 26-year-old striker believes the season should not be allowed drift on into the summer months.

"I know the Premier League will do everything they can to finish the season, and that they are looking at every option possible," added Kane.

"I think, for me, we do need to try to finish the season. But there needs to be a point where enough's enough.

"Playing into July or August and pushing next season back, I don't see too much benefit in that. But obviously I don't know too much about behind the scenes and financially.

"Probably the limit for me is the end of June. If the season's not completed by the end of June we need to look at the options and just look forward to next season."
