Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas says Harry Kane is likely to leave the club on loan. The 20 year old scored a hat-trick for England's Under-21s in a 4-0 win over San Marino earlier this month - and has spent previous loan spells with Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester.
"At the moment what I've been speaking to Harry about is that we are studying the possibility of him going out on loan as well - but we are happy for him to try to compete for his place, and so is he," Villas-Boas is quoted as saying in the Tottenham & Wood Green Journal.
"We have lots of options up front and he understands that, but he is happy to continue to push for his place. He has been given that opportunity because he has been excellent in training, so we believe a lot in his future.
"We can't have a loan situation that does not work for him, like the ones that we have had before. That's why we have been very cautious with his next step, and we have not been in a rush in that situation.
"Why haven't the loans worked before? Because he didn't play."
