Kane arrives looking to make impact in Premier League
CITY’s deadline day signing Harry Kane has come in search of Barclays Premier League goals following the completion of his season-long loan deal from Spurs.
The 19-year old arrived at Carrow Road at the eleventh hour as the transfer window slammed shut on Friday evening, bringing with him bags of potential and an eagerness to make it as a Premier League front man.
And speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk before the Canaries’ 1-1 draw with his parent club at White Hart Lane on Saturday, Kane said: “It was a long old night. I’m glad to get the deal done and obviously it’s a great opportunity for me.
“It was one of those that was a bit up and down. One minute I was going and then the next minute I thought I wasn’t, but that’s deadline day I guess. I got the call at about half nine to say it was going to be pushed through so I got myself down to the training ground and got it done.”
Kane arrives with a real goalscoring pedigree and impressed on-loan to Millwall last season, scoring nine goals to help ensure the Lions’ Championship status and claimed the clubs Young Player of the Year award in the process.
And now, having got his Premier League debut out of the way in Spurs’ 2-1 defeat to Newcastle on the opening day of the season under new boss Andre Villas Boas, Kane is looking to carry on his development and goalscoring form in the top flight.
“l’ll be looking to score as many goals as I can for Norwich,” said Kane, “That’s what I’ve done and that’s how I’ve built up my career until now, by scoring goals. Hopefully now I can take that into the Premier League.
“It’s another step up for me. I had a spell at Millwall last season and did well in the Championship, but this is the next progression. Hopefully I can move on and improve the way I did there last season.
“I want to be playing games and hopefully I can do that now and score goals for Norwich in the Premier League.”
Kane arrives to meet up with City boss Chris Hughton who himself has strong links with the North London club, having played over 400 games and acted as caretaker manager and coach at White Hart Lane.
“I’m looking forward to working under Chris,” said Kane, “He’s obviously got a great connection with Spurs and it should be a great time for me under his management. I’m looking forward to it.
“I want to make the most of my time here and move on as a player. I’ll look to head up to Norwich on Sunday and meet up with the lads for training on Monday.”
