Dyche: Spurs were willing to sell Kane to Burnley for...

Sean Dyche admits he came close to signing Tottenham star Harry Kane for Burnley.

Dyche has revealed how close the Clarets were to landing the world-class 29-year-old centre-forward - which could have proven to be one of the best signings in history.

Dyche told Ben Foster on the Fozcast: “I phoned up about him. Tim Sherwood immediately said £7m. We (Burnley) were in the market for £3m.

"I went to the board and they said we can't do that."

Unfortunately for Burnley, the move failed to materialise as Kane knuckled down to prove his worth in north London, where he has now etched his name into Tottenham's history books.
