Harry Kane has set his sights on breaking the Premier League’s all- time pretensions record after getting the leading arranger in Tottenham’s history.

Kane’s first- half strike in Sunday’s 1- 0 palm against defending champion Manchester City took him past Jimmy Greaves to a record 267 pretensions for the north London club.

The 29- time-old’s raptorial finish also made him only the third player to reach 200 pretensions in the Premier League, behind record holder Alan Shearer( 260) and Wayne Rooney( 208).

Now his place in Tottenham history is secured, Kane admitted he’d love to break Shearer’s record as well.

“I ’m sure you guys will be talking about that, ” he said. “ It’s always there in the reverse of my mind but I just take it game- by- game, season- by- season.

“It’s surely there to be broken and I ’m feeling good and feeling fit so we ’ll see what happens. ”

Kane’s remarkable thing feats are all the more inconceivable given he was regarded as doubtful to make it at the loftiest position at the launch of his career.

After graduating from Tottenham’s youth academe, Kane was transferred on a series of loan spells in the lower leagues before eventually being given his chance to shine in the Premier League.

“It’s been an amazing trip, ” he said. “ I ’ve been then since I was 11 times old, it’s 18 times of my life, a lot of hard work and fidelity.

“I ’m extremely proud to represent this club and score 267 pretensions for them and 200 Premier League pretensions for them is commodity I ’ll noway take for granted.

“I ’ve just got to keep it going, score as numerous as I can and see what happens from there. ”

Kane could make farther history latterly this season as he looks to come England’s record arranger.

The England captain moved into common first place with Rooney when he netted his 53rd transnational thing in the World Cup quarter-final defeat against France in December.

He could have broken the record in the same game but blazed a late penalty over the bar.

Kane’s coming chance to pass Rooney is likely to come in England’s European Championship qualifiers, with games against Italy and Ukraine listed for March.

For now, Kane is reposing in the afterglow of his Spurs corner, with master Antonio Conte felicitating him by phone after the City game.

Conte passed surgery to remove his gallbladder last week and watched the palm on television while he recovers in Italy.

“He was on the phone there and he just kind of complimented me for the achievement and just said he was proud of all the boys, ” Kane said.

“It’s not easy when you do n’t have your trainer there. It’s obviously been a delicate week. We ’re all happy the surgery went well and he’s recovering well.

“We showed we ’re a unit, a platoon. I ’m sure he was watching, proud. It was the type of performance where we knew what we had to do. ”

Tottenham is just one point behind fourth- placed Newcastle after its palm, with alternate- placed City five points adrift of Premier League leader Arsenal. Know More Football News…
