Kane has just signed for Norwich on a season-long loan and Roberts asked former Canaries star Tim Sherwood, now a coach at Spurs, about the youngster.
He wrote in the Pink 'Un: "Tim - who is still involved at Tottenham - couldn't have been more complimentary about Kane.
"I asked Tim what his strengths are and what type of player he is. He simply told me 'He's almost a younger version of Teddy Sheringham. He's got great feet, likes to drop deep and pick the ball up. He's also got a fantastic range of passing and has the ability to score goals with both feet and his head.'
"The only negative thing Tim mentioned was that he's not the quickest, but as I well know that's not always a problem.
"I think he'll do very well when he gets the opportunity to show all the qualities that persuaded Chris to bring him to the club."
