Tottenham Hotspur fans should be disappointed with Harry Kane talking about his future while he is under contract at the club until 2024, believes Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

The England captain still has three years to run on his deal at Spurs but has made comments suggesting he will be considering his future in the summer.

Tottenham are struggling to make progress under Jose Mourinho and Kane’s chances of significant success at the club do not seem to be improving.

When asked about if speculation over his future could impact his performances in the coming months, Kane told the Telegraph: ‘I’m fully focussed on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.’

Wright feels this will be disappointing for Spurs fans given that Kane committed to a six-year contract before the 2018 World Cup and appears reluctant to see that deal through.

‘Before the World Cup he didn’t even give himself time so that if he did win the Golden Boot he could have had even more leverage to negotiate the contract, whether he was going to sign or not, he signed before,’ Wright told ITV.

‘He signed a six-year deal till 2024, for him to be talking about his contract now, if I’m Spurs I’m a little bit upset, simply because he was happy to sign it then in 2018 for six years.

‘Now he’s saying it he’s throwing things up in the air and, for me, I’m not keen.

‘If Harry Kane is now talking about what is happening with his future…he signed for six years, if I’m a Tottenham fan I’ll be quite disappointed to hear that.

‘But I totally understand about wanting to win things but then you think about that before you sign for six years!’

Kane has certainly not said he will be leaving Tottenham in the near future, but he has left his options open for now.

‘I think that’s a hard question to answer right now,’ he said on whether his future is a distraction from Spurs’ run-in and England at the European Championships.

‘It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros. To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.

‘I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros. Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible.

‘I’m fully focussed on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.’
