England captain, Harry Kane, said he has had no contact with Tottenham regarding his future as he focuses on peaking in time to help his country at Euro 2020.
The 27-year-old’s club situation has been the topic of heavy speculation after he told Spurs he wanted to leave.
“It doesn’t really bother me about the outside noise,” said Kane. “When I’m here I’m with the boys, I try to help the boys, be a leader in the team.”
Kane has yet to score at Euro 2020, but says transfer speculation has nothing to do with that.
“I feel like it’s one of them where if you’re not scoring as a striker, people look for every little angle why you’re not scoring and that’s probably the case in this tournament so far,” he said. “But like I said, as long as I’m focused, I’ve got the self-belief I have, I’m not worried about anyone else.”
Kane, who scored 33 goals in 49 games in all competitions last season, said he has only spoken to his agent, who is his brother, to receive good luck messages before Euro 2020.
He said he speaks to a Tottenham club doctor for a brief check-up after England fixtures but when asked if he has had any contact with the club over his future he said: “I have good luck messages and things like that but nothing to do with the personal stuff with the club really.
“If I’m totally honest I don’t really read anything, no media.
“The most important thing is about us as a group and us a staff and as a nation and when you are in these tournament modes, sometimes it’s easy to get caught away with other stuff but the experience I’ve had in the last few tournaments, is just to focus on this and do what you can in the moment and leave no regrets.”
Kane won the Premier League Golden Boot and Playmaker awards for the 2020-21 season, and also won the Golden Boot as top scorer at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
