Before finding out, let’s take a look at some of the numbers.
Born in 1993 in London, Harry Edward Kane is an English striker who plays at Tottenham Hotspur as a center-forward. Harry Kane joined the Spurs in 2009 and joined their youth team. After that, he played for four different clubs on loan till 2013, i.e., Leyton Orient (2011), Millwall (2012), Norwich City (2012-2013), and Leicester City (2013).
He finally joined the first team of Spurs in 2013, and ever since, he is known for his prolific goal-scoring abilities. Regarded as one of the greatest strikers globally, Kane also possesses a fruitful ability to link play.
Harry Kane is deployed as a center-forward for England and Spurs, where he plays at the best of his abilities. However, he can also play as a second striker. As a striker, he has a knack for being smart with the ball, winning penalties, and knowing when to draw in for the foul.
As of now, Harry Kane is priced at €120m in the transfer market. Spurs have done a reasonably decent job in playing him through the ranks for someone brought in from the youth academy. In addition to his hefty price tag, Harry Kane was priced at €150m in 2018 – the highest he has ever been on the market.
After developing under Tottenham’s youth team, Harry Kane continued to be a U18 player for Spurs until 2011. On January 7 in 2011, Kane moved to Leyton Orient on a loan spell, which ended the same year, and he returned to Spurs on May 31, 2011.
After returning from Leyton, he left for Millwall on loan on January 1, 2012. He returned to the club at the end of the same year’s summer. Later on, Norwich City and Leicester City did the same and signed him on loan for one year, respectively. After returning to the club in 2013, Harry Kane stayed and has not signed for any other club ever since.
