Spurs claim surprising clause: 'Kane is always welcome here'

Harry Kane left Tottenham Hotspur this summer for Bayern Munich, but there's a chance the striker might return to North London one day. Chairman Daniel Levy claims that Spurs have negotiated a buy-back clause.

Last month, Kane made the switch to Der Rekordmeister for around one hundred million euros. It was a significant setback for Spurs, which had intended to extend the striker's contract. 'We tried that in various forms, both for the short and long term,' Levy reiterated on Tuesday during a fan evening of the club.

Yet, there seems to be an avenue left open. Rumors had been circulating in recent weeks about a buy-back option, and Levy was able to confirm this news. 'Indeed, there is a clause. Harry is always welcome here; he is a beloved and valued member of the Spurs family and will forever be a part of our history.'

Should the now thirty-year-old Kane choose to return to his old flame in the future, there's a chance he could still surpass Alan Shearer. The former top striker holds the Premier League goal-scoring record, but Kane hasn't given up on that title just yet.

Levy did not specify when the Spurs clause would be activated or the amount involved.
