Football news - Tottenham chief Daniel Levy tells new manager Nuno Espirito Santo Harry Kane will stay at club - report
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has told Nuno Espirito Santo Harry Kane will not be sold this summer. Kane has already asked to leave Tottenham and is being chased by Premier League champions Manchester City. Nuno was appointed manager of Tottenham this week and chairman Levy has told the head coach Kane will remain a Spurs player.

Tottenham chief Levy considered a number of candidates with several managers believed to have snubbed offers.
But Nuno is now at the helm and will soon take charge of his new team once pre-season gets underway.
One player unlikely to report for pre-season straight away is England striker Kane, who is on international duty at Euro 2020.
The Daily Mail claim Kane’s desire to leave Tottenham hasn’t changed despite the arrival of Nuno, but the installation of a new head coach appears to have strengthened Levy’s resolve to keep hold of the club's talisman.
Levy has told Nuno to plan for the new season with Kane as he intends to stonewall any attempt from the striker to leave this summer.

City reportedly made a £100 million offer for Kane last month and were eager to sweeten the deal with the inclusion of one of their own players.
Raheem Sterling was mooted as a potential makeweight for the deal, but the attacker has ruled himself out of taking part in any swap deal for Kane.
