Harry Kane’s Tottenham future is “still in jeopardy”, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Man City and England defender suggested Kane will only sign a new contract at the end of the season if he is convinced they are on the right track to win trophies.
After spending the summer angling for a move away from his boyhood club the England captain has endured a slow start to the season.
However, he has finally found some form in recent weeks with three goals in his last three Premier League games.
A Spurs insider revealed to this site on Monday (27 December) that multiple sources had told him the club are increasingly confident of tying Kane down to a new contract.
Asked for his verdict on Kane’s future, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “That’s still in jeopardy.
“I wouldn’t be confident if I was Spurs. He clearly still wants to win things.
“It depends how things go between now and the end of the season at Tottenham. How successful they are or how successful they look like they are going to be.
“I think that one is still a little bit up in the air. As he starts to wind down his contract he becomes cheaper to other clubs of course.
“It’s seven Premier League games in for Conte. You need to look at the end of the season for how they are and what they are looking like. He can also see what next year’s recruitment is looking like and then go from there.”
Kane is under contract with his boyhood club until the summer of 2024.
Despite his slow start to the season, the 28-year-old still has 11 goals across all competitions this term.
