Defoe not surprised by Tottenham forward Kane

Sunderland star Jermain Defoe has revealed that he is not surprised by Harry Kane's wonderful success over the past few seasons.

Kane has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe over the past three seasons and having scored 29 Premier League goals last term, the England international already boasts 99 goals for Spurs – at the age of only 23.

And ex-Tottenham star Jermain Defoe has revealed that he is not at all surprised by the wonderful success of Spurs' superstar hitman.

Defoe said: "It's not easy to score goals in the Premier League. The league is so strong, home and away, so to score three 20s on the trot...I just think he's in the perfect team, no team is going to create more chances and dominate games like Spurs.

"If there is one team to be at right now, it's Spurs and with 'H', I said ages ago he was a finisher. I said to the guys how good he was and if he got the chance, he would score goals. I'm not surprised with how well he's done. That team creates chances and give him a chance and he'll score."
