Cham­pi­ons League to spur club’s trans­fers

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - SPORT -

TOT­TEN­HAM Hot­spur’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in next sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League will be a big at­trac­tion for lead­ing soc­cer play­ers in the up­com­ing trans­fer win­dow, striker Harry Kane has said.

Eng­land in­ter­na­tional Kane scored the win­ning goal as Tot­ten­ham beat New­cas­tle United 1-0 on Wed­nes­day to se­cure an English Premier League top-four fin­ish and qual­ify for the Cham­pi­ons League for a third suc­ces­sive cam­paign.

Kane says the north Lon­don out­fit’s pres­ence in Europe’s elite com­pe­ti­tion will help Tot­ten­ham re­tain their best play­ers and make qual­ity ad­di­tions to their squad.

“It is the big at­trac­tion. It is what ev­ery­one wants, es­pe­cially the top play­ers around the world,” Kane said.

“In trans­fer win­dows, you can never put your fin­ger on it. But it is a big at­trac­tion, a mas­sive new sta­dium, a great team.

“The next step is win­ning stuff, but this is a big year for us, hope­fully we can have a mas­sive year next year and win some tro­phies.”

The 24-year-old also said that Tot­ten­ham seal­ing a Cham­pi­ons League spot was a mas­sive achieve­ment given that the club played all of their home matches at Wem­b­ley while their new sta­dium is un­der con­struc­tion. – Reuters
