Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists there is no way the club will be tempted to cash in on forward Harry Kane.

The England international scored twice as Spurs beat struggling Norwich 3-0 on Saturday, to take his Premier League tally to 11 this season and 27 in 2015, which broke Teddy Sheringham's club record for a calendar year.

Kane has reportedly attracted interest from big-spenders Manchester United in the past, but Pochettino is adamant Kane will not be leaving White Hart Lane regardless of the bid.

"There is no price. No one can buy him," Pochettino said.

"He is not for sale. There is not a value because it is impossible to put a price."

Kane's remarkable 12 months has included two hat-tricks, six doubles and 32 goals in all for club and country, including one 79 seconds into his senior England debut.

The 22-year-old went eight games without a goal for Tottenham at the start of the season but has since hit his stride to help Pochettino's side to fourth place in the table ahead of Monday's visit to in-form Watford.

And Kane has been impressed by Watford's recent run of form in which they have won four of their last five games, with a 2-2 draw at Chelsea ending the sequence.

Kane was invited for trials with the Hornets as a youngster before Spurs stepped in and made the definitive offer.

"I was there for a four to six-week trial and then before it went up I went to Spurs," Kane said. "I was very young at that stage. I've played there on loan for a couple of clubs.

"They've been doing well. They got another good result at Chelsea on Saturday so they're going to be full of confidence as well.

"You can't take any game for granted, like 'this is a game we're going to win'.

"Everyone is beating everyone and teams who you thought were going to be down the bottom are up near the top. We have to be focused like we were on Saturday against Norwich."
