Former Tottenham striker Darren Brent has claimed Harry Kane is "not worth" his £160m price tag and "no one is going to pay" his exorbitant transfer fee.

Kane declared his intention to leave Spurs at the start of the summer and has been linked with a move to Premier League champions, Manchester City. The England international has three years left on his contract, and Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, has made it clear he will not sell Kane for anything less than £150m.

However, Brent believes the 28-year-old is not worth the hefty price tag. He told talkSPORT: "Harry Kane is one of the best centre-forwards in the world, but he's not worth £160m. He's 28 years old now, he has had injuries... what are you going to get out of him, four or five years? I just don't think it justifies that much money.

"Man City have got the money to do it, but Pep Guardiola and the owners are probably thinking, 'No, £160m is too much.' Maybe £100m or £120m, that's more realistic for Harry Kane. But if Daniel Levy is saying he wants £140m, £150m, £160m and Manchester City are not prepared to pay that, no-one is going to pay that. And then Harry is going to have to stay and play."

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitted Kane is "in a difficult situation", and said: "As much as I love Harry, he's a fantastic player and great lad, but he's in a difficult situation. "Because if Daniel doesn't get the money he wants, he's not going to say, 'We love you, Harry, you've been a great servant and we're going to let you go for this amount.'

"He's going to want the full amount before letting him go. Unless Daniel gets the money he wants, it's not going to happen. If he wants £160m and someone is offering £130m or £140m, they are not going to get him. Daniel won't budge."
