Former favourite on why Alli and Kane ‘need to stay’ at Spurs

Kane and Alli: Both on target for Spurs

Teddy Sheringham has urged Harry Kane and Dele Alli to stay at Tottenham for the long haul – and help the club become London’s biggest football team.

Kane has become one of Europe’s top strikers over the past two years and has already reached 24 goals for the season following another impressive campaign.

Alli, meanwhile, has underlined his status as one of the country’s top young talents, with his 15-goal haul this season earning him transfer attention from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Sheringham, who left White Hart Lane in 1997 after failing to win a trophy before playing a huge role in Manchester United’s historic Treble winning side in 1999, believes, however, that both Kane and Alli can achieve their quest for honours at Tottenham.

“Tottenham wasn’t a stepping stone for me,” he told The Sun. “I wanted to get to Tottenham and have what Harry Kane has got now.

“This has to be the most exciting time at Spurs since Terry Venables. There’s no need for Harry to go anywhere else.

“The way the club is going, it could be the biggest in London.

“Why would he want to go to Manchester, Barcelona or Real Madrid, when everything is here for him?

“Dele Alli, exactly the same – performing at the top of his game, a regular for England.

“They don’t need to leave to win trophies. You don’t have to go anywhere else when Tottenham are progressing.”
