Emerson Royal kisses ball during Barcelona unveiling, August 2021

Emerson Royal has taken to Instagram to share a photo of himself after completed his first day of training with new club Tottenham.

The Brazilian defender jetted from Spain to England on Sunday and has linked up with his new side at Hotspur Way as he begins life as a Spurs player under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Emerson sealed his switch on deadline day for a fee of £21.4million from Barcelona and had stayed in Spain up until Sunday.

The 22-year-old previously claimed that he wanted to stay at the Nou Camp. However, Barca were forced to sell due to their financial troubles.

Emerson will now hope to be a part of Nuno’s squad for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace.

Pundit takes stab at Levy over Kane promise

Meanwhile, former Sunderland and England striker Kevin Phillips has rubbished talk that Harry Kane will sign a new deal at Tottenham and believes the striker will be angling for an exit again next summer.

Following his interview with Gary Neville in ‘The Overlap’ podcast back in March, the 28-year-old spoke openly about quitting his boyhood club, with Manchester City the firm favourites to land the England skipper in a big-money deal.

Kane was then constantly linked with the Premier League champions over the course of the summer transfer window.

However, after making a return to the side for the win at Wolves, the prolific forward released a statement via Twitter committing his future to the club – for now.

Two goals then followed in the Europa Conference League qualifier against Pacos de Ferreira in late August. But it’s since been reported that Kane could agree a lucrative new contract. That contract would include a release clause for him to move in either in January or next summer.

Kane to seek exit again

But speaking to Football Insider, Sky Sports pundit Phillips would be surprised if Kane stays at Spurs.

He said: “I heard what he said and yeah, reading between the lines, you would say Daniel Levy has broken a gentleman’s agreement. If Kane is sleeping easy at night he is obviously laying the blame somewhere else.

“We don’t know the facts but to hear that from Harry says a lot. I’m pretty sure he is hinting toward a gentlemen’s agreement being broken.

“Harry may not be happy about it but he won’t throw his toys out of the pram. He will knuckle down and do what he does best which is score goals.

“We will see what happens come the summer. I don’t see him signing a new deal. I think he’ll be angling for a move again next summer. I’d be very surprised if he extended.”
