Biography

Norwich City signed 19 year old Tottenham striker Harry Kane on a season long loan on 31st August 2012. The teenager was Norwich manager Chris Hughton's ninth signing of the summer. Hughton said "I'm delighted to bring in someone of Harry's quality. He is a very talented player and has bags of potential."

The England Under-19 international had been predicted to figure in Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas’ plans in 2012/13, making his Premer League debut against Newcastle on the opening day of the season, but with the London team signing Clint Dempsey from Fulham just before the close of the summer transfer window, the young frontman was allowed to join the Canaries.

Kane rose to prominence in the 2009-10 season, firing in 18 goals in just 22 games for Tottenham’s Under-18s, and subsequently went on to represent England at both Under-17 and 19 levels.

He was a key part of England’s march to the UEFA U19 European Championship semi-finals in the summer, and netted the winning goal in a crucial 2-1 victory over France to ensure his side advanced from the group stages.

The Walthamstow-born forward scored five times in 18 appearances during a loan stint at Leyton Orient in 2010-11 and netted 10 times in 27 games for Millwall last season, after joining on loan in January.

Kane made his Norwich debut in the 0-0 draw with West Ham on 15th September 2012. He unfortunately broke his metatarsal in his second Norwich appearance 9a Capital One Cup clash with Doncaster Rovers on 26th September 2012) and is expected to be out of action for at least a month.

He returned to the Norwich first team but did not impress. Spurs' failure to sign a new striker in the January 2013 transfer window saw them recall Harry from his loan on 1st February 2013.

Despite his lack of appearances for Norwich, Spurs offered Kane a new contract until 2017 which he signed on 21st February 2013. He was then loaned to Leicester until the end of the 2012/13 season.

Kane scored his first Premier League goal in the 5-1 thrashing of Sunderland on 7th April 2014.

Kane's impressive form for Tottenham in the 2014/15 season where he scored 26 goals in 42 games by the end of March saw him called up into the England squad for the first time for the European Championship qualifier against Lithuania on 27th March and the friendly against Italy the following week. He made his England debut coming on as a 72nd minute substitute for Wayne Rooney and then scoring 78 seconds later to make it 4-0 to England.

Finishing the season with 30 goals, Kane was linked in early June 2015 with a £40-£50m move to Manchester United.

I n March 2016, World Soccer named the 500 most influential players in World football and included Kane in their list.

Kane scored 28 goals in 50 appearances during the 2015/16 season as Tottenham finished third in the Premier League. He was selected on 31st May 2016 to be part of England's squad for the European Championships in France. He started the games against Russia and Wales but failed to score, and was substituted at half-time in the latter.

Kane finished the 2016/17 season as the Premier League's leading scorer with 29 goals, winning his second consecutive Golden Boot. This was achieved by a combined seven goals in the last two fixtures however, a 6–1 win over reigning champions Leicester City and a 7–1 crushing of Hull City, He also scored Tottenham's last goal at White Hart Lane in the 2-1 win over Man Utd on 14th May 2017.

On 25th June 2017, the Sunday Mirror reported that Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United bosses he wants £100m-rated Tottenham striker Harry Kane. Kane stayed at Spurs and scored 41 goals in 48 appearances, including becoming the first player to score six hat-tricks in a season.

Kane was named captain for England during 2017/18 and captained the side at the Russia World Cup in June/July 2018. In England's first game against Tunisia on 18th June 2018, he scored both England goals in a 2-1 win. This was followed up with a hat-trick in the 6-1 thrashing of Panama on 24th June 2018. He then scored in the 1-1 draw with Colombia in the second round (round of 16) and converted England's first penalty in what would be their first ever penalty shoot-out win at the World Cup.
