Harry Kane was all geared up to be playing Premier League football this season but he thought it would be for Tottenham until Clint Dempsey made an 11th hour switch from Fulham.
All summer the England Under-19 striker was talked about in glowing terms by Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas with the Portuguese insisting he was ready to put his stamp on the top flight.
However, in some last minute madness on transfer deadline day the north London side swooped for American international Dempsey, suddenly pushing him down the pecking order. That saw Norwich City take him to Norfolk on a season-long loan.
Kane, though, intends to make the most of the chance ahead this season with the Canaries, who at the moment are struggling for goals in the Premier League.
“It was all kind of last minute,” he said. “I was number three striker at Spurs, then on deadline day, they signed Clint Dempsey.
“When I knew that was happening, the manager said it would be good to get some games out on loan, so that is when the deal got done.
“I want to be playing week in and week out in the Premier League, so Norwich was a great opportunity for me.
“It is the next step, it is what I want to be doing.”
Kane made his Premier League debut for the Canaries against West Ham but is now set to lead the line against League One Doncaster in the Capital One Cup third round clash tomorrow.
He said: “I came here to get some minutes under my belt and so tomorrow night will be a great chance to prove myself to the gaffer to try to push for a Premier League spot.”
