Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford is being linked with a surprise move to Tottenham as he enters the final year of his contract, although he could be on the verge of signing a new long-term deal at Elland Road.
And clearly his contribution to Leeds' impressive ninth place finish in the top-flight has impressed Spurs, who have expressed an interest in the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough man.
That being said, Leeds are keen to tie Bamford down to a long-term deal. In fact, the striker is already in talks with the Yorkshire club about extending his stay, say reports.
One thing is for sure; Bamford appears happy at Elland Road and in an interview ahead of his fourth season at the club, he waxed lyrically about life at Leeds.
“The only club I’ve been at longer was Chelsea but I was always on loan and stuff there,” he told The Yorkshire Evening Post in July.
“I think this time round is probably the most settled I’ve been. I love living in the area, I love the club, it’s like a family in football. I can’t speak highly enough of how everything has gone.
"It couldn’t have gone any better. I had a little bit of a sticky start with the injury but since then it’s all been uphill.”
But he will no doubt become a pivotal member of Leeds' squad in the coming months if he decides to stay.
Do you think Bamford should stay or should he move elsewhere? Could he be a great replacement for Kane if he does leave North London this summer?

It goes massively under the radar just how good our current front 3 is individually and collectively imo pic.twitter.com/6Qdjb2yfn4
