Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane has rejected rumours of a move to Manchester United, stating that he plans to be at White Hart Lane "for a very long time".

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season under Mauricio Pochettino this term, scoring 30 goals in all competitions for Spurs and making his England debut under Roy Hodgson in March.

Kane was also named the PFA Young Player of the Year and captained the side.

After a brilliant run of form he has been linked with a £45million move - a fee that Spurs would likely reject - to Manchester United this summer, but the striker has said he has no intention to leave north London.

“Spurs is where I’m at and where I plan to be for a very long time,” he told Claire Balding on BT Sport.

“We’ll be looking to win some good trophies in the future. I want to keep progressing and keep getting better.

“This season has been crazy and more than what I ever expected to do so early on but it’s happened, and it’s how you deal with it.”

“I am hoping to go on and win many trophies for Spurs and England. That’s always been the aim since I was a kid, dreaming of lifting the trophy one day for them. I want to be the player that does everything he can to reach his ability and I’ll keep working hard. I want to win trophies.”

Harry Kane was speaking ahead of his appearance on the new series of The Clare Balding Show. To see the full interview watch BT Sport 1 from 8pm Thursday or on BBC Two at 10pm on Thursday.
