FORMER Spurs star Jamie Redknapp has launched a scathing attack on Daniel Levy for not sticking to his verbal agreement to sell Harry Kane in the summer.

He fumed: “I found that surprising this summer because every other time they’ve had a real asset, you think Modric, Bale, Carrick, Daniel Levy has decided to sell, took the money.
“The one time that they get an incredible amount of money, great offer to a player who obviously wants to leave, I think there was a verbal agreement £130million, they decide to say no.
“I didn’t understand that, it didn’t make any sense to me and I know you’ve got to keep your best players but I think they could’ve invested again.”
Kane stayed despite the 28-year-old reportedly believing he had a verbal agreement with Levy to depart, with SunSport exclusively revealing he felt ‘hung out to dry’ by the club hierarchy.
Kane had publicly stated his desire to leave Spurs in May before his U-turn in August.
His barren spell only fuelled speculation that Kane was unsettled at the club.
And Redknapp went on to claim selling Kane would help the club move on.
He said: “I think when you’ve got a player that wants to leave that doesn’t want to be at your club, it helps.
“Did you say that they’re doing a rebuild? I mean, how many rebuilds has Daniel had?
“I mean I’ve lost count. Great stadium, great training ground, but they haven’t won under his tenure, it’s not good enough.”
After being strongly tipped to join Manchester City, Newcastle have now emerged as a sensational possible January destination for Kane.
New joint-owner Amanda Staveley has promised the Toon Army ‘world class players’ will be brought in following the £300million Saudi takeover.
And the man who has scored 167 goals in 252 Premier League games certainly falls under that category.
