Harry Kane has returned to Tottenham ahead of the new Premier League season, manager Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed.
Kane caused a stir this past week as it was reported he did not return to training as planned on Monday and instead enjoyed extra time-off following his participation in England’s run to the Euro 2020 final.
The striker’s no show came amid Manchester City’s interest in signing him as they look to replace departed icon Sergio Aguero.
Kane hit out at critics questioning his ‘professionalism’ and stated that he: “Would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned.”
Spurs boss Nuno has now confirmed that Kane has returned to the club and is undergoing a period of isolation after arriving back in the country.
“Harry is with us,” he said following his side’s friendly victory over rivals Arsenal on Sunday. “He has to quarantine at The Lodge but he has already done his first day with the sports scientists, but he is with us.”
“I will speak with Harry as soon as possible.”
City are still pursuing Kane even though they broke the British transfer record with the £100m signing of Jack Grealish last week.
However, Pep Guardiola has admitted the club will walk away from talks if Spurs do not wish to sell.
“He is a player for Tottenham Hotspur and if Tottenham don’t want to negotiate, it is finished,” Guardiola said on Friday.
“I think Man City and many clubs in the world want to try to sign him, we are not an exception, but it depends on Tottenham.
“It is different to Jack (Grealish). He had the release [clause] and Jack is different. Harry is exceptional and we are interested in him but if Tottenham don’t want to negotiate, nothing more to say.”
