Ashley Cole has agreed with Roy Keane that Harry Kane should leave Tottenham this summer in order to give himself a better opportunity to win trophies.
After being rested by Gareth Southgate against San Marino last week Kane returned to the England starting line-up on Sunday for the match versus Albania and had a big impact, scoring once and creating an assist in the 2-0 victory.
The 27-year-old has had another hugely impressive campaign personally, but following a disappointing season Spurs' only chance of silverware is in the Carabao Cup, where they will face Manchester City in the final next month.
Kane is still yet to win a major trophy in his career, and speaking on ITV Cole and Keane both stated their belief that he should look to quit Spurs this summer.
"Every time I hear him speak or see him on the TV and he addresses the situation about the contract he seems happy but under the surface I can tell he wants to win as well," Cole said.
"Most players want to win, they want to compete for trophies, they want to finish their career with as many top games, big games, big accolades. Will he do that at Tottenham? I don’t think so.
"It’s going to be interesting for him, whether he stays or goes, but it’s going to be a very, very big decision for him."
Keane added: "It is (tough) but he's also a professional. If you’re a top player you want to win trophies. It’s a big few months coming up for Tottenham, the League Cup final, can they get in the top four? Huge question marks.

"Will that influence him? He’s obviously under contract, Tottenham will have a lot to say about it. But if you’re in his shoes and it comes to the summer, I think the guy has to move on to really win the big prizes. He’s not going to do it at Tottenham."
Kane has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the past, but with his contract running until 2024 Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not likely to let him leave unless he receives an astronomical transfer bid.
