I think we will sell this lad in the summer.
Why? Personally I think we would have to be especially retarded to give up on a 19 year old that has shown more likeliness of breaking into our squad in the future than any other player his age in the last few years.

A high end championship loan or a low prem loan is needed again. Time is on our side with Harry, might be a late bloomer like sheringham or many others, so I would give him another few years at least.

Late bloomer, at 19 i would say its about right tbh but everything you say is right and I would say he is still ahead of schedule.

Kane's main problem is his position tbh, but he just needs to be playing in the right team and the right place!

He's going to be a good player, but you're right. The shift towards single striker formations leaves players like him (I see him as a Sheringham type) a little bit out on a limb - he's not a "lead the line" striker but he's not a number 10 either. I hope he makes it with us.

I've got a lot of faith in this young man, but I just can't see him ever getting anywhere near our bench let alone our first team.

He needs to do a Danny Graham, get a permanaent move to the Championship with somebody like Millwall and continue to build on his ever-growing reputation.

I think we have to stick with Kane, at least for two more seasons.

The issue is he needs games, and we need to decide if he will get more games with us or out on loan - and given how unpredictable loan spells can be, I think he will stay with us until January, and then we'll see how we are doing.

He's come on a lot for me, has filled out, looks a bit quicker over the ground, I'd like him to have a full pre-season with the first team, then we'll see.

They boy need to get on the weights and sharpen up his elbow :)

In all seriousness I would love to see the lad come good. Maybe a Hull or Cardiff type loan would benifit him next season.
