"I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success."

Kane has made one appearance for Tottenham this season as he came from the bench in the 1-0 win against Wolves on Sunday, August 22.

Spurs stood firm on bids for Kane

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy rejected several bids from Manchester City for Harry Kane.

Having made it clear he wanted to leave the club in May, Manchester City looked like his most likely destination as Kane is eager to win trophies as soon as possible.

City are said to have initially offered £75million plus £25m in add-ons but Daniel Levy was not willing to budge on his rating of Kane.

Spurs value Kane at upwards of £120m but Manchester City are unwilling to meet that figure, especially after the high-profile acquisition of Jack Grealish.

At the beginning of August, Kane failed to turn up for Tottenham training after being on extended holiday due to his involvement in Euro 2020.

His absence only seemed to fuel speculation that he was ready to force a move away from the club but he shut down those reports with a statement saying he “never refused to train” and would be returning to the club.

On August 5, Guardiola spoke on the Kane situation where he maintained Manchester City would not force a deal if the Spurs camp was unwilling to negotiate.

"If Spurs don't want to negotiate then there is nothing more to say." Guardiola said.
