Harry Kane signs a new deal at Tottenham Hotspur

Kane has signed a six-year contract that could earn him £200,000 a week including bonuses, which nearly doubles his previous deal.

Indeed, it's reported that his weekly wage will be somewhere near the £200,000 mark once all relevant bonuses are chucked in.

Speaking about England's chances and the challenges of playing at a World Cup, Kane said: "Of course, with England there's going to be a lot of pressure on us this World Cup but there's pressure for every team - every big team that's there - you've got to perform".

The deal is a major coup for Spurs as they prepare to return to White Hart Lane next season, with their academy product having established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in world football over recent seasons.

"I'm looking forward to the new stadium first and foremost and just to keep progressing as a Club".

Kane will captain Gareth Southgate's Three Lions and also act as their main hope up top off the back of a 41-goal club season. He was a striker that I really admired.

Kane has regularly been linked with a move away from Spurs, predominantly to Manchester United and Real Madrid, but supporters can breathe a sigh of relief as he looks set to be sticking around for a while yet. For me personally, though, I just want to improve.

Kane scored 30 goals in the recently completed Premier League season, when Spurs finished third, and has passed 20 goals in each of the last four seasons.

Kane is the first big-name signing since Mauricio Pochettino put pen to paper two weeks ago on his five-year deal.

Teddy Sheringham (97), Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane (both 91) came close but he is Tottenham's only centurion.

He netted 56 goals for Spurs and England in the 2017 calendar year.

Kane, the English Premier League's top-scorer in the 2016-2017 season, is to be the captain of the English national team for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
