New Spurs contract - and then loan move to Leicester for Harry Kane


Tottenham striker Harry Kane has signed a new contract and has been loaned to Leicester City for the rest of the season.

Kane, who has been touted as a potential first-team star by Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas, has extended his deal at White Hart Lane until 2017. The 19-year-old struggled on loan at Norwich earlier this season, but has been given another chance to impress away from Tottenham – this time with Nigel Pearson's promotion-chasing Championship side.
