Tottenham loanee Harrison looking at Kane with Melb City loan

Tottenham Hotspur striker Shayon Harrison hopes to emulate Harry Kane with his recent loan to Melbourne City.

Harrison has taken the unorthodox decision to join the A-League club, which resides 16,000km from London.

The 21-year-old has made a gutsy decision and is hopeful he can follow the same footsteps as Kane, who perfected his craft on loan at the likes of Leicester City and Norwich before hitting the big time at Spurs.

"Harry's an example of hard work, going out on loan, doing well there and showing that hard work pays off," Harrison told Goal.

"He's a big inspiration for me, especially being a striker. Someone I really look up to and hopefully I can mirror that one day.

"I've trained with him a lot, played with him in a few pre-season games - he's just an amazing player, everything you want in a striker.

"Not only on the pitch but the way he carries himself off it as well. He's an unbelievable professional and someone all the lads at Spurs look up to."
