Harry Edward Kane (born 28 July 1993)
Kane started is youth career at local side Ridgeway Rovers in 1999, at the age of 6. In 2001 he had brief trials with Arsenal and Tottenham, however things did not work out and he moved back to Ridgeway Rovers. Kane was given a 4 to 6 weeks trial with Watford before being given another chance with Tottenham, aged 11.
Kane started his career at Tottenham, first as a holding midfielder, then moving to more of an attacking midfielder role. In the early stages he did not stand out as a great player, he was not particularly quick but is work ethic and his constant desire to improve all aspects of his game got him noticed. In 2008-09, Harry played for the under 16's side that competed in Mexico and Switzerland, scoring three goals. On his 16th birthday Kane signed a scholarship contract and moved to Tottenham's Under 18's team. In his first season he played 22 times, scoring 18 goals.
In January 2011, Kane moved on loan to Leyton Orient. He scored on his first league start for the club. Kane ended the season with 5 goals in 18 games. Kane moved back to Tottenham for the start of the 2011-12 season before moving to Millwall in January until the end of the season. Kane's performances and goals helped raise Millwall up the league table and away from the relegation zone. Kane spent most of the 2012-13 season out on loan, first with Norwich City, then Leicester City. However, with Tottenham having been unable to add to their attacking options during the January transfer window, they opted to recall Kane.
The 2014-15 season is where Kane started to show signs of the great player he has become. Not only was he voted the PFA Young Player of the Year, his 21st goal of the league campaign, equalled a Premier League club record alongside Teddy Sheringham, Jürgen Klinsmann and Gareth Bale. At the start of the 2015-16 season Kane's squad number was changed from 18 to 10, later Kane said that he changed the number "to become a club legend". Kane's style of play and work ethic has earnt him many fans, some include greats like Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer. Former player and TV pundit Danny Murphy said that the England team should be built around Kane, stating, "I'm struggling to see a weakness in the lad's game".
