Kane 'gutted' after Portugal defeat

Harry Kane says he is flattered by Manchester United's interest in him but adds that he fully intends to start the new season at Tottenham Hotspur.

England Under-21 striker Kane, 21, has reiterated his desire to stay at White Hart Lane, saying Spurs are one of England's "big clubs".

"I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs," he said.

"I have seen there is interest but that's all I know. It is flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested."

Kane started for England as they lost 1-0 in their opening European Under-21 Championship match against Portugal on Thursday.

He scored 31 goals for Spurs in all competitions during his breakthrough campaign last season, which ended in him being named as the PFA Young Player of Year.

Kane's impressive year has led to reports that 20-time English champions United are ready to offer up to £40m for him.external-link

When asked if it would be hard to turn down one of the Premier League's "big clubs", Kane said: "Tottenham are one of the big clubs. That is the way people have to see it. I am at a big club."

He added to BBC Radio 5 live: "We've got a bright future and I can only see us moving forward. We've got a young squad who gained a lot of experience last year. Hopefully we can progress and get into the top four."
