Harry Kane is committed to Tottenham despite transfer interest from PSG, according to reports. The England international drew a blank on Sunday as West Ham won 2-1 at the London Stadium. And with Spurs struggling under Jose Mourinho, talk of a potential move away has started to grow in volume.

Kane has been a shining light amid a difficult season under Mourinho.

The England star has, typically, been in fine goalscoring form – bagging 13 times from 22 Premier League matches.

With Spurs sinking under Mourinho, however, talk of a potential move away has started to gather momentum.

Manchester City have emerged as potential suitors with Pep Guardiola looking to sign a replacement for Sergio Aguero at the end of the campaign.

And PSG have been linked, too, with Mauricio Pochettino mindful Kylian Mbappe could quit the club for Real Madrid in the summer.

The Mirror say, however, that Kane is committed to Tottenham for the time being.

But, while that’s currently the case, the 27-year-old is frustrated at the club’s failure to win a trophy during his time in the first team.

Kane has lost two finals with Tottenham, to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final in 2015 and Liverpool in 2019’s Champions League final.

He’ll be hoping it’s third time lucky when Spurs face off against Manchester City in the EFL Cup final in April.

But Mourinho’s men will enter that match as underdogs, especially after being thumped by City 3-0 recently at the Etihad Stadium.

Meanwhile, Tottenham boss Mourinho has spoken out after his side’s defeat to West Ham on Sunday – insisting they didn’t deserve to lose.

“The result is there, they have the points and we have the sadness and the frustration,” he said.

“The good feeling is the way the team played, especially in the second half.

“No doubts the team wanted to win, no doubts the team was fighting together for a different result, and I believe we deserved a different result.

“West Ham didn’t play in the second half, they just fought and defended.

“We played, we created chances, we scored a goal, should score more, hit the post twice, had fantastic crosses across the face of goal waiting for a touch, even sometimes an own goal.

“We had great positions from the edge of the box, shots that normally you think that Sonny, Harry or Lucas are going to score, so, also not lucky.

“But we cannot forget that the score was 1-0 and somehow after a couple of minutes in the second half it was 2-0.”

Mourinho also shut down claims Tottenham were in crisis, adding: “I don’t know what you mean by crisis.

“If crisis is frustration and sadness in the dressing room, I would say so, because nobody is happy, we all showed that in this game.

“When a team fights the way we did until the last second trying to get a different result, it is never a group in crisis. Groups are in crisis when you are not together in the search for better results than you have.

“So I wouldn’t say crisis, I would say a really bad run of results. That is obvious. We are losing too many matches.”

Tottenham are next in action against Wolfsberger on Thursday night.

Spurs go into that game 4-1 up from the first leg after Son Heung-Min, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius struck in Austria.
