Kane is part of the Three Lions squad which kicks off the international break with a UEFA Nations League trip to Hungary.

The 28-year-old recently closed out the Premier League season by helping his side to Champions League qualification.

The player is understood to be happy with the direction of the club under Italian manager Antonio Conte, who is expected to splash serious cash over the summer in a bid to turn the team into trophy contenders.

Kane admitted that settled club life makes it easier to perform for England, saying: "Whenever you finish strongly with your club there is always a freer mind going into the international stage.

"Obviously, last summer we had a major European competition, a large tournament. So of course you have different feelings towards that than maybe you would towards the Nations League games. "It was a fantastic summer last year in terms of the tournament. It ended obviously very disappointingly, but going into these games I feel confident, I feel free. "We had a good finish as a team towards the end of the season and I had a good season personally, which is always great. "So I am looking forward to carrying that on into these games. Then, as I touched on earlier, getting a nice break over the summer."

Kane is currently four goals behind England's all-time top scorer Wayne Rooney.

The Three Lions have four fixtures coming up in this international break, with the striker setting his sights on the record. He added: "Of course I think it would be an incredible achievement. I was lucky enough to be playing on the pitch and actually scored when Wayne broke the record himself. "I saw how much it meant to him and his family. I did not really think that far ahead at that stage. "But to be where I am now - four goals behind Wayne with plenty of games coming up this year- it would be an incredible achievement. "Whenever you are in among the names of Rooney and (Gary) Lineker and (Bobby) Charlton and players like that you are doing something worthwhile. "But I am focused on trying to help the team. I always feel if I am doing my best for the team then the goals will come."
