Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has revealed he was encouraged to sell Harry Kane as far back as 2013 amid fresh interest in his services.

The England captain has regularly been linked with a move away from North London with Manchester City previously seeing a big-money bid turned down for his services in the summer of 2021. A transfer could potentially be on the cards once more, sooner rather than later.
