Tottenham have left Harry Kane at home for their Europa League Conference trip to Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira as speculation continues to swirl around his future at the club. 

The club’s star forward, Harry Kane has not played for the team under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo after returning from a holiday in the Caribbean. He has therefore faced scrutiny over claims he refused to return from training amid links to Manchester City.

Kane – who has since clarified there has been a breakdown in communication – was not selected in the matchday squad to face the Premier League champions in the opening day clash – which Spurs won 1-0.

Moreover, the England captain feels chairman Daniel Levy has broken a promise to allow him to leave the club this summer amid increasing tensions between the pair.

Sources close to the 28-year-old claim he feels Spurs have not matched his lofty ambitions, though he will continue to give his all when called upon to rebuild his trust with the supporters.

With Espirito Santo leaving him behind, Kane can continue working on his fitness ahead of Sunday’s trip to Wolves after he made his long-awaited return to training this week after finishing a period of isolation following his holiday at a hotel at the club’s training ground.

Kane underwent a solo session on Monday while his teammates recovered from their win over City before joining the rest of his team-mates on Tuesday.

He still has his heart set on a move to Manchester City – who have already made a bid of £125million for his signature. Spurs are sticking to their valuation of £150m for a player regarded as one of the best forwards in the world, though City are unwilling to match their asking price.

City do plan to make an improved bid before the end of the transfer window, but Pep Guardiola’s side do not want to drag out the chase into next summer and have also been linked with a sensational £25m swoop for Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.
