Harry Kane says he has a clear conscience after the summer transfer saga linking him with a move to Manchester City, and feels that his reputation at Tottenham will remain unharmed despite the unrest.

Kane pushed for a move to the Premier League champions over the summer, missing training sessions after the Euro 2020 campaign with England and not being available for Tottenham’s opening game of the season, ironically against Man City.

However, the move never materialised and he is now set to remain in north London, at least for another season and help continue Tottenham’s excellent start to the season which has seen them win their opening three games and top the Premier League table.

The 28-year-old has moved to play down the transfer saga which ran and ran over the summer, saying he was comfortable with the situation throughout.

‘After the final [of Euro 2020], I was in England for a few days then went off on holiday for a couple weeks,’ Kane told talkSPORT.

‘When I’m away I’m rarely on my phone to be honest. I really try and use that time to get away from everything.

‘I know there was a lot of noise surrounding me but I was quite calm. I knew what the situation was between me and the club and that’s the way it’ll stay.

‘Everyone has their opinions on it but that’s part and parcel of the profession we’re in.’

Kane has now returned to the Tottenham side under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, starting in the 1-0 win over Watford at the weekend, and he feels his reputation at the club is intact, despite the desire to play elsewhere.

Asked if he feels his reputation has been harmed over the last couple of months, he said: ‘No, I don’t think so.

‘I think anyone involved in the football industry knows the ins and outs. I was quite calm with the situation, but when you’re in it and you know the truth, then your conscience is clear.

‘There’s always going to be noise. My whole career I’ve had ups and downs from when I’m young to where I am, that’s just part and parcel of it.

‘I’ll look forward now, the aim has always been to win silverware with Tottenham and it’s been that aim every year.’
