Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is not concerned that Harry Kane has yet to agree a new contract with the club and says the striker should not compare his salary to Premier League rivals.

Spurs opened talks earlier this year with Kane, 23, who has a deal to 2020 and earns a reported £50,000 a week.

The club are determined not to break their wage structure, with Hugo Lloris their top earner on £80,000 a week.

Pochettino said: "They're very happy to be here and we are happy they're here."

Goalkeeper and captain Lloris, 29, has also yet to extend his deal, which ends in 2019.

"Maybe there are a lot of rumours that can affect our fans but the fans need to have no worries because the players show their commitment to the club - they want to be here for the long term," continued the manager.

"I think the club and the players are talking about maybe improving or having extended contracts. In the future I think it's not a big problem to do."

Forwards Wayne Rooney (£300,000), Daniel Sturridge (£150,000) and Jamie Vardy (£100,000) all reportedly earn at least twice as much at their clubs as England team-mate Kane, who has scored 52 Premier League goals in 89 games for Spurs.

"You cannot compare their situation with another player," Pochettino said.

"In my life, when I was a player and now as a manager, I need to be happy with what I won, what I need, but never to compare with another, because it's not important.

"I don't know, what happens in another club is their business. I can say that they're happy. I can feel every day that they're happy. I'm calm."
