Interim Tottenham boss Ryan Mason says he does not know whether Harry Kane has told the club he wants to leave

Tottenham interim head coach Ryan Mason says he is unaware of whether Harry Kane has asked to leave the club.

England captain Kane has told Spurs that he wants out of his boyhood club this summer, Sky Sports News exclusively revealed on Monday.

But interim boss and ex-Kane team-mate Mason, who is in charge following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, says he "does not know" whether this conversation took place.

"Not that I am aware," he said ahead of the penultimate game of the season at home to Aston Villa.

"The conversations I have had with Harry have been about the game the other day and also preparing for the game tomorrow. I don't know."

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have all contacted Kane's representatives to express a desire to sign the 27-year-old striker.

Kane has still not won a trophy in his club career and has made no secret in recent interviews that he wants to compete for Europe's top team trophies.

Mason insists Kane is "100 per cent committed" to Spurs' final two league games of the season and that speculation over the Spurs captain's future is inevitable.

Asked what the Spurs fans' reaction to the reports might be on Wednesday, Mason added: "They will l love seeing him play.

"He loves the club, he has been at the club from a very young age and come through the system. I am sure the fans are excited to be there tomorrow and to see Harry play."

Kane's preference is to remain in the Premier League, and he wants to have his future resolved before playing for England at this summer's European Championships.

Tottenham, who have always insisted Kane is not for sale, said in a statement to Sky Sports on Monday: "We have a season to finish and we want to finish it as strongly as possible. That's all everyone should be focussing on."
