Kane was a major target for Man City, with City manager Guardiola saying it was up to Tottenham to make the transfer happen

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane said Wednesday that he will stay at the club and be "100% focused on helping the team achieve success", ending weeks of speculation about a potential move to champions Manchester City.

"It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I've had in the last few weeks," the England captain wrote on Twitter.

"I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success."

The 28-year old was a major target for Manchester City, with City manager Pep Guardiola earlier this month saying that it was up to Tottenham to make the transfer happen.

Kane, who signed a six-year contract at Tottenham in 2018, was keen on a new challenge but an initial bid from City - reportedly worth 100m pounds ($137.1m) - was not enough for Tottenham to let him go.

The striker returned late to pre-season training following Euro 2020 and missed Tottenham's opening two games of the season against City, in the Premier League, and Pacos de Ferreira, in the Europa Conference League play-offs.

He returned to action against Wolverhampton Wanderers Sunday, coming off the bench to a loud reception by travelling Tottenham fans.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo praised Kane's performance Sunday, calling him "one of the best players in the world".

Tottenham, who have won both their league games so far, host Watford Sunday.
