Harry Kane's new contract decision splits Danny Murphy and Simon Jordan as Tottenham striker is told he has 'one move left'


talkSPORT pundits Danny Murphy and Simon Jordan disagree over whether Harry Kane should sign a new contract with Tottenham.

The England captain, 29, has entered the final two years of his current deal and it is understood he is considering an extension.

Kane wanted to leave Spurs in the summer of 2021 but the club stood firm despite a £125million bid from Manchester City.

However, the arrival of manager Antonio Conte and Tottenham’s unlikely qualification for this season’s Champions League is thought to have changed the striker’s position.

Kane is yet to claim any significant silverware but many expect Spurs to challenge for major trophies after an impressive summer transfer window.

The Englishman also has his eyes on Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record, having recently moved joint-third on the list after four goals in as many top-flight games this term.

After Conte publicly called on Kane to sign a new deal, ex-Liverpool midfielder Murphy also urged the frontman to put pen to paper.

Murphy told talkSPORT: “If I was Kane, I would be signing and saying, ‘I’m here. This is me’.

“If he waits and sees it out, he’ll be 31. Two years down the line, you never know what’s going to happen.

“He’s had injury problems, he’s a huge guy. Does it cause a problem in his relationship with the fans if he doesn’t sign a new deal by the end of the season?”

However, former Crystal Palace owner Jordan argued the case for waiting another year.

Kane could be available at a cut-price fee next summer – or even a free transfer the year after that.

Jordan told talkSPORT: “I’d wait until next year. See where Conte is sat and see what the progress of the team is.

“He’s got one move left. He’s either going to stay or he’s going to move.

“At 30-years of age, he’ll be just under 30 when the season finishes, there is still a move in him.

“If someone of a significant stature, in the Champions League, wants to win a league, you could see him going. Although it would be difficult to go to Chelsea if they were that particular club.

“I wouldn’t want to run the clock down to go on a free transfer, I would want to put the pressure back on Tottenham, knowing that there’s a need for them to do something.

“I would want a release clause in the contract, so if things go wrong, Conte disappears, all the wheels come off… I can move.

“I would want it all ways and up.”
