Tottenham should sell Harry Kane in the January transfer window so the club can “move on and progress”, according to England legend Sir Geoff Hurst. Kane was denied the opportunity to join Manchester City over the summer, but Hurst believes he “deserves” the chance to regularly play in the Champions League.
Kane made it public at the start of the summer that he was unhappy at Spurs and wanted to leave in search of a new challenge at City.
Despite being under contract until June 2024, the striker believed he had a gentleman’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy over pursuing a transfer.
However, Levy rejected that claim and turned down City’s approaches for Kane, who initially decided not to turn up to training to try and force Spurs’ hand.
Kane eventually backed down and reaffirmed his commitment to Tottenham and has six goals in 10 appearances so far this season.
But the truce remains an uneasy one between the club and their star player and 1966 World Cup hero Hurst thinks Spurs would be better off if they cashed in at the next available opportunity.

“To be honest with you, I get on with the Spurs players, we were great pals years ago,” he said on talkSPORT.
“The thing I would say about the Spurs situation quite clearly: they should let Harry Kane go.
“Keeping a player who wants to move on, and maybe deserves an opportunity playing in the Champions League.
“Keeping him there with resistance is not necessarily good for the player and not necessarily good for the club.

“I think they should move him on, personally.
“Let’s get this right, I’m not being detrimental to Spurs or the club. They are a fantastic club and I’m great pals with the players from years ago.
“I never go along with this Spurs-West Ham antagonistic attitude. I never went along with that.
“I’m saying it purely as an outsider looking at the player and the club.

“The club is great. They have a great ground. He’s a fantastic player but I think the time is to move on and progress. It’s my humble opinion about this situation.”
Kane is yet to score in the Premier League so far this season, but his hat-trick against Mura in the Europa Conference League on Thursday took his tally to six goals in other competitions.
Son Heung-min was the star in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa, with the South Korea international setting up both goals to ease the pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo.
Kane will now turn his attention to international duty, with England facing Andorra and Hungary in World Cup qualifiers over the next few weeks.
