HARRY KANE has reportedly failed to show up for Tottenham training amid intense speculation over his future.
Kane, 28, and other Spurs players who reached the latter stages of the Euros were set to return to training this week.
But Sky Sports News reporter Paul Gilmour tweeted this morning that the England striker wasn't present.
Kane wants to leave the club this summer in a bid to win trophies with Man City interested in his signature.
It was believed that Kane would return to training on Tuesday after a negative Covid test before new information came to light.
Respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano later added: "Confirmed. Harry Kane has NOT shown up for Tottenham training. Been told it’s Harry Kane choice and not related to Covid test.
"Kane is assuming that he has had a ‘gentlemen agreement’ with the club since one year to leave Spurs this summer."
Speaking earlier this morning on Sky Sports News, Gilmour said: "The basic facts today as we know them are Harry Kane still wants to leave, Tottenham still want to keep their star striker and Manchester City still want to buy him.
"There is all of that to sort out and business can go on now holiday time is over.
"If Harry Kane is here this week, it is certainly expected there will be a lot of talks around that."

He added: "Harry Kane's position is quite clear, he still wants to leave.
"We know his love of Tottenham but this feels like more a business like decision.
"The warning signs have been there for Tottenham in terms of trying to keep up and match the ambitions of the man who gets all their goals."
SunSport revealed last month that Man City are ready to play the long game to land Kane.
The champions will look to drive down the £160million asking price set by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
During the Euros, it emerged the Premier League champions were willing to offer around £100m for him, so there remains a huge gap in valuations.
The Sun revealed how Kane had been told he can go during a meeting with Levy.
Guardiola has strikers who can see him through the opening weeks of the season in Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres.
