Reports in England claimed that Kane was scheduled to return to the club on Monday for a Covid-19 test but did not show up.

The 28-year-old is said to be keen on leaving the club to win silverware and has already informed the North London outfit.

However, Kane insists he has not refused to train and will return to the club for pre-season on Saturday 'as planned'.

"It's almost 10 years since I made my Spurs debut. For every one of those years, you - the fans - have shown me total support and love," Kane tweeted.

"That's why it hurts to read some of the comments that have been made this week, questioning my professionalism.

"While I won't go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow (Saturday), as planned.

"I wouldn't do anything to jeopardise the relationship I have with the fans who have given me such unwavering support during my time with the club. This has always been the case as it is today."

Here are 17 free agents available to sign ahead of the new season:
