Harry Kane has been told that he should continue to pursue a transfer from Tottenham to Manchester City. Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has made the frank claim that the England captain will regret not winning a trophy if he ends his career without a major honour.
Kane was the subject of strong interest from Man City during the summer but a move did not materialise.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was firm in his stance that the 28-year-old would not be sold, even though some reports suggested that he would be tempted by a £150million bid.
City boss Pep Guardiola even broke rank by publicly declaring his interest in signing Kane but that was not enough to force a move.
Kane is believed to have been keen to leave the North Londoners over the summer as he is keen to add silverware to his several individual honours.

And ex-Three Lions man Wright has suggested that Kane could continue to seek a transfer to the Premier League champions if Spurs fail to win a trophy under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Asked on ITV about Kane’s club situation, Wright said: “Yeah for sure, with Harry Kane we’ve seen he’s decided to stay at Spurs but at some point, there’s no question he’s a world class striker.
“But there will be some stage where he will be thinking he wants to win things otherwise he wouldn’t have wanted to go to Man City. Maybe he felt it wasn’t possible at Tottenham.
“I think he’s a world class striker but people will question that.

“People will say he’s never won anything.
“He’ll probably break the England scoring record. He’s on 40 now, so he’ll probably break the record.
“But if he doesn’t win trophies, that’ll be his biggest regret.”

Kane tweeted a carefully worded statement in mid-August declaring that he would remain at Spurs beyond the summer transfer deadline.
It certainly did not rule out a possible deal in the future.
The England ace, who is closing in on Wayne Rooney’s record 53 international goals, returned late to Spurs’ pre-season training.
He finally returned to action as a substitute in the club’s 1-0 win over Wolves and then struck a brace against Pacos Ferreira in the Europa Conference League.
Kane is in excellent form for England, who are on course to qualify for next year’s World Cup.
He moved onto 41 goals for his country by scoring a stunning long-range strike in their clash with Poland on Wednesday night.
