London - Harry Kane, break-out star of the current Premier
League season, has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract with Tottenham
Hotspur, the London club announced on Monday.
"The club is delighted to announce that Harry Kane has
signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract which runs until 2020,"
Tottenham announced on their website.
Kane, 21, came through Tottenham's youth academy and has
scored 20 goals in 33 appearances this season, making him the leading scorer in
all competitions in the English top flight.
He made his Spurs debut in a Europa League game against
Scottish side Hearts in August 2011 and has spent time on loan at Leyton
Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City.
Popular with the club's fans, who chant that he is "one
of our own" due to his local roots, Kane starred in Spurs' 5-3 rout of
Chelsea on New Year's Day, scoring twice.
He has been capped by England at under-17, under-19,
under-20 and under-21 level and has been tipped to be named in the senior
England squad for their fixtures against Lithuania and Italy in March.For
