Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has said a move away from his boyhood club "could happen" following reports of interest from Spanish champions Real Madrid.

Kane, 24, has established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in world football and has secured successive Premier League golden boot awards. He has continued his goal-scoring prowess this season, scoring 11 goals in all competitions having overcome his now annual August drought.

Kane's form has led to speculation that Madrid are interested in taking him to the Bernabeu at the end of the season as the long-term successor to French striker Karim Benzema.

Kane committed his future to Tottenham in December after signing a new six-year contract, although he has made the first suggestions that he could one day leave the club.

“I would never say no,” said Kane, who will captain England on Thursday in their 2018 World Cup qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley Stadium. “I would never say yes.

"I think in football, you never know and you never rule out anything. It is not something that I definitely want to do but it could happen. You just never know.

“Like you said, at the moment, I am very happy where I am here – that is all that matters. We will see what happens, but for now that is all I am focusing on.”

Kane will captain England for the third time on Thursday night and is looking to become only the third player to score in each of his first three games as captain.
