Tim Sherwood has warned Spurs: Win a title or lose Harry Kane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s predecessor fears the England striker will otherwise grow restless with the north Londoners and seek to fulfil his ambitions elsewhere.

Sherwood handed Kane his first Premier League start in 2014. He said: “There’s only so much loyalty someone can show.

“The only way they can keep him is to win something this year. That something might not be the Carabao Cup, it might have to be the league or the FA Cup.”

Spurs, last season’s Premier league runners-up, are currently fifth, five points off joint-leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.
