Wigan Athletic chairman goals dig at Tottenham Hotspur, jokes membership need Harry Kane
Wigan Athletic chairman Talal Al Hammad has joked that League One club is closely monitoring the situation of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The Spurs star is set to leave north London this summer after spending 10 seasons at the club without a winner’s medal.
Kane has reached the League Cup final twice and the Champions League final once, but has been exhausted on all occasions.
The Tottenham Academy graduate is reportedly keen to join Manchester City as he regularly seeks to play in European elite competition and win silverware. The Wigan chairman has joked that his squad is in the running for Kane too, having recently lifted silverware as the north Londoners.

The last Spurs cutlery came out in 2008 and they don’t seem any closer to winning a big one anytime soon.
They challenged Leicester City for the Premier League title towards the end of the 2015-16 season, but dropped out in the last three games of the season, eventually finishing third behind the Foxes and Arsenal.
Tottenham have missed Champions League football for the second straight season and may not play all of Europe next season if they lose to Leicester City on Sunday’s last day of the season.
It remains to be seen where Kane will be at his profession next season, but it clearly isn’t Wigan and applicants should be ready for some tough negotiations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
