Harry Kane would tarnish his reputation at Tottenham if he forced through an exit from the club.
That is according to former Premier League midfielder Darren Ambrose, who is confident the England captain is not the type to refuse to train in order to get a transfer.
The Lilywhites rejected a £100million bid for their talisman striker from Manchester City last month.
Spurs do not want to get rid of the 28-year-old, who has three years remaining on his contract in north London.
And former Crystal Palace ace Ambrose is adamant Kane should respect his contract and Spurs’ wish to keep him.
“You should always return,” he told talkSPORT. “You’re under contract.
“A gentleman’s agreement means nothing, absolutely nothing – particularly if Daniel Levy is like we know he is, he’s notoriously hard to deal with.
“He’d have said everything to get Kane to sign the contract initially.”
Ambrose reckons Kane could tarnish his legacy with Spurs fans if he disrespects the club.
“He’s Tottenham’s main man and idolised by the supporters. I think he’ll tarnish any reputation and anything he brings to Tottenham by doing this,” Ambrose added.
“He’s the England captain as well. I honestly can’t see him not turning up.
“I don’t know him personally but he seems like such a professional guy.
“If he refused and Daniel Levy doesn’t get the offer or money that he wants, he could just say: ‘Don’t come back in then.’
