“I look at what Tottenham did with Harry Kane albeit in a different way. They said: ‘No, there is a price and if someone wants to pay the price, then we would probably do it. If they don’t then he’s not going anywhere.’ That’s it, they have kept him.

” Harry Kane, he got off to a bit of a slow start like a few England players after the Euros. But he is a top player.
He proved that against us a couple of weeks ago. So I think in many ways, the football clubs are the people in charge of them, they have got the contracts.
There will be times when players have got the power but at the moment we have got Declan on the best part of a 3.5 year contract. Just like Tottenham have got Harry Kane on a contract and they control what happens.”
