​Tottenham striker Kane lauds Millwall for developing him as a player

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has admitted his time on loan at Millwall was crucial to his development ahead of the teams' FA Cup quarter-final on Sunday.

Then 18 years old, he scored seven goals in 22 appearances in the Championship and was subsequently named Millwall's Young Player of the Year.

"It was a big part of my development. I had a great time at Millwall, I enjoyed my loan spell there," Kane said.

"I was 18 at the time, playing in the Championship, we were in a relegation battle and it really turned me into a man.

"Playing in difficult, high pressure games and I managed to come out of it positively. It will be interesting to play them again.

"A lot has changed since I left but I'm looking forward to it."
