Defiant Tottenham dig in over Harry Kane's training no-show and want to KEEP £150m star amid Man City transfer interest
TOTTENHAM'S stance on keeping Harry Kane has NOT weakened today, despite his no show at Hotspur Way.
The England captain was due back at Spurs' training ground for Covid-19 testing today.
But he failed to show up, as he digs his heels in to try and secure a transfer to Manchester City.
However, SunSport understands Kane's stance has made Spurs even MORE determined to keep hold of their star striker this summer.
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy is determined to keep hold of his side's talisman this summer.
And according to the Mail, 'nothing changes' in light of today's events.
Levy, 59, is not willing to entertain any offer below £150million.
City bid around £100m at the start of the summer, and could pay a similar fee for Jack Grealish.
But agreeing a deal for Kane could prove to be more difficult.
Despite having three years remaining on his contract, Kane believes that he has a 'gentleman's agreement' with Spurs to leave this summer.
Harry is our player, period. No need to talk about anything else
But the North Londoners wholeheartedly refute this.
And they expect Kane, 28, to remain their player for the upcoming campaign.
New boss Nuno Espirito Santo was categorical on this subject when probed during his first press conference at the start of pre-season,
He said: "Harry is our player, period. No need to talk about anything else.
"Harry is one of the best players in the world, that says it all. I have no doubts in my mind.

"What I wish is for Harry to recover well, to have a good rest and when he arrives he will feel that every one of us has to commit ourselves to become better. We are very ambitious people and we want to do it well, and no doubts on Harry on that."
Kane himself told Gary Neville before the end of last season: "I hope we have a good enough relationship.
"I've given the club… well, I've been there 16 years of my life. So, I hope that we can have a good, honest conversation and see where we are at in that aspect."
