Mauricio Pochettino is adamant that Harry Kane's future at Tottenham is not inextricably linked to winning trophies, claiming the England striker will stay for "a long time". "It is all very clear with Harry as people recognise his value", he added.
"He's one of our best strikers, Harry is our player, he loves Tottenham, he's staying here and he's looking forward to staying here for a long time". "He deserved all the praise and our decision [paid off] to be courageous and give him the possibility to play in a club like Tottenham when you fight for big things".
This is the confirmation, and shows how people around the world see Harry.
As well as Arsenal and Tottenham, both Schalke and Borussia Dortmund are keeping an eye on the Polish forward in case he decides to call a day on his time in Italy.
"Tottenham have been a great club for Harry and he's been paying them back tenfold".
"But that is a question more for Harry and what he's going to do".
"That does not surprise me". I think the most important thing last season was that he was the player in the squad that played the most. But I think Harry deserves it.
"I didn't know. And now we [he and his assistant Jesus Perez] were talking with our press officer and he said he asked him and he said it was to one friend".
That means you don't have to worry about sacrificing different parts of your side to include the two best Dream Team players so far this season.
And after scoring the victor in Tuesday's 1-0 EFL Cup win over Barnsley, Alli was shown celebrating by cupping his ears, an act which some interpreted as a show of petulance towards demanding Spurs fans.
Ahead of their Saturday lunchtime trip to West Ham, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 11.30am, midfield Dier reflected on Spurs' progress under Pochettino, and says although they feel proud, nothing has been achieved as yet. "Why would he need to prove anything?" It's nothing related with us, the fans, nothing. That is the truth and I believe it and yesterday he told me that.
"I think we can definitely be proud of that".
