Antonio Conte begs Harry Kane to sign new Tottenham deal NOW and help him lead Spurs to trophies at last
ANTONIO CONTE wants Harry Kane to sign a new deal at Tottenham NOW.
The England captain has less than two years left on his current deal and Conte is hopeful he will agree new terms.
Having tried to force his way out of the club and secure a move to Manchester City 12 months ago and seeing fresh links with Bayern Munich this summer, Conte says Kane is happy again in North London.
And the Italian boss thinks that is down to the direction the club are heading in under his management.
Spurs will return to the Champions League next month and are third in the Premier League table heading into Wednesday’s London derby against West Ham.
Asked if now was the ideal time for Kane to put pen to paper, Conte said: “Yeah, the perfect time but you know very well that you create the perfect time with a project.
“If also the player understands that there is a right process, that everybody is going in the same direction, I think every single player wants to see this.
“And I think that Harry for sure is happy because he is seeing this type of situation.
“There is a vision, there is a direction and there is a unity to try to improve the team to be the team at the level of his expectations.”
Conte is keen to see his star man agree a new deal and put to bed any talk of leaving again that may come over the next two years.

However, the England striker – who scored his 200th goal in English league football at Nottingham Forest on Sunday – may be reluctant to do so before his manager does.
Conte is out of contract at the end of the season and is always reluctant to signal his commitment to a long-term project.
For now, he is just pleased that Kane is happy.
The former Chelsea boss added: “My opinion is only one of a million opinions [trying] to force the club, to tell the club ‘sign a new contract for Harry Kane’.
“Because we are talking about a world-class striker and a player who in this moment is the most representative player for Tottenham, no?
“For sure I would like him to sign a new contract.
“In this moment, for me it is very important to see him happy, totally involved with this season, this project and in what we are doing. For me this is the most important.
“Then it’s a decision that the player and the club have to take.”
Conte was coy on any new incomings for Spurs before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
The Tottenham boss has held talks with chairman Daniel Levy and managing director Fabio Paritici to make his stance clear but says it will be “okay” if they do not add further.
Conte said: “I spoke with the club, with Paritici and Daniel Levy and told them my opinion.
“The most important thing is they know that. If we do something or not, it’s okay.”
