Kane delight at Spurs stay

Moment of the Matchday – Matchday 01

Harry Kane says it was a "special feeling" to commit himself to Spurs after signing a new deal with the club on Thursday.

The 23-year-old, who signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2022, said he had "no hesitation in signing" with his beloved home-town team.

The Premier League Golden Boot holder told the club's official website: "Everyone knows how much I love this team and how I feel about this Club and to sign another contract is a special feeling."

He added: "We’ve got a great, young squad, the Club is moving in the right direction and I had no hesitation in signing.

"That’s important, especially when you are younger and you do break through into the first team, you get a lot of publicity and it can get to your head a bit. You might stop doing the things you were doing to get to that stage.

"I’m a strong believer that, okay, I got my chance and took my chance but now it’s time to work even harder to maintain that level. I want to be a top striker year in, year out, scoring goals and I know I have to work hard every year to maintain that."

Kane admitted his progression from just another player to a household name has been astonishing.

He explained: "The progression has been very quick. I first broke into the team, then scored in the Europa League, then started scoring in the Premier League, scoring in big games, a cup final, new contracts – a lot has happened. 

"It’s been a bit of a whirlwind and I haven’t really taken it all in to be honest, it’s always onto the next thing. 

"Even now, I’ve signed a new contract and it’s onto the next thing, working hard and trying to get better. The next step for us is to start winning trophies and being in those high-pressure games."
