Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has admitted Harry Kane must leave the north London club if he wants to win trophies.

The 27-year-old has netted an impressive 215 goals in 327 appearances for Spurs, making him the club’s second-highest all-time scorer behind Jimmy Greaves, who netted 266 times between 1961-1970.

However, Kane is yet to win a single piece of silverware at his boyhood club and speculation linking one of the world’s top strikers with an exit from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has resurfaced in recent weeks.

And Defoe, who now plies his trade at Rangers, feels the Tottenham and England captain will have to leave if he is ‘craving medals’.

‘If you’d have asked me this question a few years ago, I’d have said he should have stayed there, what he’s done at the football club – he’s a legend,’ Defoe told talkSPORT.

‘Since I’ve come away from that and gone to Rangers, I’ve seen that mentality and played for another big club, the importance of playing for that club and winning every game, that mentality, the standards and demands.

‘You have to win and bring silverware, otherwise it’s not good enough.

‘When you actually achieve that and the feeling you get from that, wow man. I wish I had that earlier on in my career.

‘If Harry Kane wants that and wants to win trophies then it looks like he has to go.

‘I don’t think it will be easy for him to leave and he might be looking at it and want to finish off being the highest goalscorer in the club’s history and see where that takes him.

‘He can hopefully win a few trophies, but if he’s really craving medals then he really has to go.’
