Tottenham Hotspur's highly-rated youngster Harry Kane hopes that his impressive stint with Millwall will earn him a chance in the first team next season.
The 18-year-old striker netted nine times in 27 appearances during a four-month loan spell at The Den, helping the Lions steer clear of relegation.
The England Under 19 international also made his Spurs debut earlier this season and went on to make six appearances during the club's Europa League campaign, netting his first goal for the club in a 4-0 win over Shamrock Rovers in December.
Kane is now aiming to impress during pre-season when he returns to White Hart Lane and earn his chance to play in the Premier League next year.
"I will go into pre-season with the hope and aim of playing first-team football for Spurs and if I can get a good pre-season under my belt then who knows what can happen next year," Kane told Sky Sports.
"Hopefully it will lead to a few Premier League appearances and from there it is up to me to score goals and show what I can do.
"To score for Spurs was a very proud moment for me because scoring for Tottenham is something that I often dreamt about whilst growing up.
"That was my sixth appearance for the club and I knew that I probably wouldn't get another one for the rest of the season if I stayed there, so I was delighted to score and prove that I can at that level."
Kane joined the Lions hovering precariously over the Championship trap-door but, following a strong end to the season, he expects Kenny Jackett's side to fare better next term.
He added: "Millwall is a great club and I don't think that we deserve to be where we are this season, so next season I can definitely see them breaking into the top 10.
"They've got good players here that like to play the game the right way and if they can do that consistently next year I can't see any reason why they won't do well and finish in the top 10."
