"It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I've had in the last few weeks," he wrote on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

"I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success."

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Lilywhites talisman was eager for a move to the Etihad, but was not willing to break his relationship with Spurs, although the transfer expert seemingly thinks a move is still possible. 

"To be clear. Harry Kane wanted [the] Man City move, he's still hoping for a breakthrough before Tuesday but it's now 'more than difficult'," Romano wrote on Twitter.

"...so Harry is also respecting Tottenham's position. They always turned down City approaches - if he stays, he will give his all for Spurs."

It is understood that the Premier League champions had made a final offer of €150 million (R3 billion) for the highly-rated forward, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy simply refused to entertain the idea of selling Kane, who is contracted to the north London club until 2024. 

It is believed that with the striker now set to stay at Spurs, City could now go after Cristiano Ronaldo, who reportedly wants a move to the Etihad
