​Tottenham forward Harry Kane will be an all time England great – Provan

Former Scotland international Davie Provan says Harry Kane can one day become an England 'great'.

The Tottenham attacker won last season's Premier League Golden Boot after eight goals in the last three matches saw him leapfrog rivals Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

Kane has managed to bag 20 goals in his last three seasons, and Provan believes he can continue on to greater heights.

"If you had a wish-list of qualities in a striker he ticks every box," Provan told Sky Sports.

"He can come towards the ball, he can come in behind. He has a fabulous first touch, scores all manner of goals, left foot, right foot, headers.

"Most centre forwards, however good they are, have a weakness but I don't see a weakness in Harry Kane's game at all."

"His potential is frightening. He is going to be one of the greats.

"I'm old enough to have seen Jimmy Greaves, Geoff Hurst and all these guys. I think in the fullness of time he can be as good as any of them, he's that good."
