Harry Kane has refused to turn up for training with Tottenham for the second successive day as he looks to force through a move to Manchester City.
The England captain was due to return to Spurs' Enfield base yesterday following his break after Euro 2020 but he failed to show up as he continues to seek a move to the Premier League champions.
Kane admitted earlier this year that he was considering an exit from North London this summer and he now seems determined to leave.
City have already had a £100m bid rejected for the 28-year-old and The Daily Mail claims that Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring his situation.
Tottenham remain determined to keep their star player and insist that a gentleman's agreement is not in place for him to leave in this window.
Spurs' chairman Daniel Levy holds a strong hand in any potential negotiations with Kane contracted to the club until the summer of 2025.
New Tottenham manager Nuno Espirto Santo is set to boost his defensive options ahead of the season with a 50m Euro deal almost complete for centre-back Cristian Romero from Atalanta.
While Joe Hart is on the verge of leaving Spurs to join Celtic for £1m, the ex England goalkeeper is expected to have a medical in Glasgow later today.
