Harry Kane should leave Tottenham this summer in order to boost his chances of winning silverware.

That’s the view of former England skipper Alan Shearer, who believes now is the perfect time for Kane to seek an exit from north London.

Kane is believed to be keen on leaving Spurs but he’s tied to a contract until 2024 and Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy would not consider selling to a direct rival.

But Shearer believes Kane can no longer pledge his loyalty to Spurs as time is running out in his career to win trophies.

‘I left Blackburn a season after we won the title and we were nowhere near winning the title so that kind of make my mind up because I wanted to do then go on and do things,’ Shearer told Match of the Day.

‘If Harry wants an excuse then Tottenham and that team are giving him one because they didn’t show up for the cup final and they didn’t show up again today [against Leeds].

‘If I was in his position then I’d be looking elsewhere to go and try to win some trophies.’

Spurs’ 3-1 defeat against Leeds means the side were unable to capitalise on Leicester’s shock 4-2 defeat against Newcastle.

Should the club fail to qualify for the Champions League for the second season in a row, Kane’s desire to leave is likely to grow.

The England captain turns 28 this summer and both Manchester City and Manchester United are keen on signing him.

However, Spurs value him at around £150m.
