Legendary England and West Ham striker Sir Geoff Hurst has insisted that Tottenahm sell Harry Kane.
The Spurs forward has failed to score in five Premier League appearances after a tumultuous summer of transfer speculation.
He has scored six goals in total this campaign, across the Europa Conference League and the EFL Cup, but his top performances have been very disappointing.
The player has claimed he made a commitment to Tottenham once his hopes of moving to Man City were dashed late in the transfer window.
The 1966 World Cup winner, however, believes Kane deserves to play in the Champions League and keeping him in N17 against his will does him a disservice.
He told the Warm Up: “To be honest with you I get along well with Spurs players, we were good friends years ago. The thing I would say about the Spurs situation is enough claire – they should let Harry Kane go.
“Keep a player who wants to evolve and who perhaps deserves an opportunity to play in the Champions League.
“Keeping him there with resistance is not necessarily good for the player and not necessarily good for the club.
“I think they should push it forward, personally.
“Let’s get it right, I’m not detrimental to Spurs or the club. They are a fantastic club and I am very good friends with the players from years ago.
“I never agree with this antagonistic Spurs-West Ham attitude. I never accepted that.
“I say it purely as a foreigner looking at the player and the club.
“The club is great. They have good ground. He’s a fantastic player but I think it’s time to move on and improve. This is my humble opinion on this situation.
And Ramon Vega, who won the League Cup with Tottenham, believes Kane’s action this summer has been disrespectful to all parties, including the player himself.
He told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “There is no doubt that the lack of respect towards the club, especially towards the fans, but also towards himself in the way he handled this situation, as captain. from England to begin with, because it represents the country.
“There is a doubt, if a player in the dressing room wants to leave, it is a very embarrassing situation because the other players think: ‘is he staying or not, or does he care even to stay? ‘. “
