Antonio Conte is convinced in-form Harry Kane is happy at Tottenham and believes the club are on the right path to persuading him to sign a contract extension.

Striker Kane, who has just under two years left on his existing deal, has begun the new Premier League season with a bang, scoring four goals in as many games to help high-flying Spurs take 11 points from a possible 15.

Head coach Conte, who replaced the sacked Nuno Espirito Santo in early November, feels unbeaten Tottenham are on an upward curve and working hard to satisfy Kane's expectations.

"You know very well that you create the perfect time (for a contract extension) with a project," the Italian said. "If also the player understands that there is a right process, that everybody is going in the same direction, I think every single player wants to see this.

"I think that Harry for sure is happy because he is seeing this type of situation. There is a vision, there is a direction and there is a unity to try to improve the team and also to improve the team at the level of his expectations."

Romero signs permanently for Spurs

Tottenham made the loan signing of Christian Romero from Atalanta permanent.

Reguilon, Winks depart on loan
