Harry Kane has signed a new six-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur, that will keep him at the club until 2024, and their fans have been reacting to the new on social media.
The England international has been the star man for Spurs for the past four seasons, with his goals elevating the club to a new level, and his commitment to the cause for such a long period has delighted their supporters.
Kane came through the youth system at White Hart Lane, and after a series of loan spells to gain experience and increase his development, he made his Tottenham debut in the Europa League against Hearts in August 2011.
He has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for the London outfit since then, and has bagged 140 goals in all competitions, topping the Premier League goal scoring charts and picking up the Golden Boot on two occasions.
Kane has gone on not just to be a mainstay for Tottenham but he is also a major part of the England set up, where he has 13 goals in just 24 caps, having impressed throughout the age groups in his early years.
The 24-year-old will be a key man for Gareth Southgate and his squad in the World Cup in Russia which gets underway next week, and with his club future now secured he will be expected to have a big tournament on the world’s biggest stage.
Being able to tie their prized asset down to a huge new deal, just days after manager Mauricio Pochettino committed his future to the club for the long term, is likely to be massive for Spurs going forward.
The stability that is being shown by two key figures should provide a good platform to attract the star names that are sought after, as the Londoners go in search of silverware next season and beyond.
The news of the deal for Kane was widely appreciated by fans, many of whom took to Twitter to express their delight that their star man has pledged his future to the club.
First Poch a couple of weeks ago, now Kane today, both signing new long-term contracts with the club. Very positive to tie down arguably the two most important people at the club. Great ambition shown by us #COYS #THFC.

Other players will 100% fall in line now with Pochettino signing a 5 year deal and the leader/talisman, Harry Kane signing a 6 year deal. They are the 2 most important people at our club #THFC

Kane and Pochettino the player and manger I’ve loved the most. Both signed new long term contracts. For a while at least I will remain deeply happy supporting this club, irrespective of number of trophies won #thfc

Both Pochettino & Kane could have left for ventures new this summer. They both could have had their pick of the clubs. Both have stayed loyal to the project and the club. The two main men, fully committed to our club. What a day to be Spurs. #COYS #THFC

Two of the biggest signings of the summer have been made at Spurs. Can't understate how crucial it is to pin down Poch and Harry. Sounds like Levy is also changing the wage structure. All positive news. #COYS #THFC #KANE
