Men's PFA Young Player of the Year: Harry Kane

Harry Kane, PFA Young Player of the Year

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has been named the PFA Men’s Young Player of the Year 2015.

Harry Kane has shot to prominence after breaking through into the Spurs' first-team this season.

Initially restricted largely to cup performances, Kane’s form ensured he was given an opportunity in the Barclays Premier League, a chance he has grabbed with both hands.

Currently joint top-goal scorer in the Premier League with 20 goals, Kane became the first Spurs player to break the 30 goal threshold in all competitions since Gary Lineker in the 1991/92 season.

The fact he is a home-grown talent has made his rise to stardom all the more special for Spurs’ fans, who proudly proclaim him as ‘one of their own’.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is delighted with Kane’s progress and attitude, commenting: "He is mature and clever. He has had good support from his team-mates and the fans and he knows how to manage this situation."

This home-grown boy has brought joy and given hope to Tottenham fans who haven’t been able to savour the sweet smell of success in recent years.

The goals, of all kinds from a young man who dominates the air as well as the ground, have continued to flow for Kane who is an England star in the making.

In March 2015, Kane burst on to the international scene scoring after only 79 seconds into his senior England debut and he was also crowned the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month.

He is a delight to watch, and not just in terms of the goals he scores or the way he plays. But the way he conducts himself and goes about his business with a smile and a swagger.

There’s no hint of arrogance either, just confidence, and his manager is delighted with Kane’s progress and attitude. "He is mature and clever. He has had good support from his team-mates and the fans and he knows how to manage this situation."
