Tottenham will need to re-hire Mauricio Pochettino if they are to convince Harry Kane that his future is in north London.

That is according to Darren Bent, the former Spurs striker who is unsure that Kane actually wants to leave the club after a saga over his transfer future two years ago.

The club record goalscorer is out of contract in 2024 and talks over a new deal are on hold until the summer.

In the meantime, Tottenham are considering who will replace Antonio Conte in the summer with Standard Sport reporting on Luis Enrique being the top target for when the Italian makes his seemingly inevitable exit.

However, Pochettino has been touted to return to the club and Bent believes that would lead to Kane staying put.

“I feel like we’ve been here before with Harry Kane,” he told talkSPORT.

“I don’t really see a burning ambition to leave. He did that whole Man City thing, maybe he conducted himself in the wrong way, and it’s not been spoken about since.

“If Pochettino goes back to Spurs I think Kane signs a new contract.”
