The 23-year-old, who made his prolific breakthrough in the 2014-15 campaign, was named vice captain of Spurs by manager Mauricio Pochettino after working his way through the club’s youth academy.

‘It’s my personality. I’ve always been a leader, on and off the pitch. I don’t think a captain is just having the ability to shout on the pitch, or moan at someone,’ Kane told the Times.

Since emerging as a leading Premier League goalscorer, Kane has gone on to earn 17 international caps for England and, despite a miserable Euro 2016, dreams of one day potentially replacing current Three Lions skipper Wayne Rooney.

‘It comes with a whole package… meeting with the fans and having that aura in the dressing room. I’ve managed to captain Spurs a couple of times. It would be a dream to captain Spurs full time and captain England. Who wouldn’t want to do that?’ Kane added.

Kane has flourished under the stewardship of White Hart Lane manager Pochettino and the striker hailed his boss for taking a risk on younger players at his disposal.

‘Spurs give young players a chance. A lot of that is down to the manager. It takes a brave manager to go and do it,’ Kane added.

‘It is easy nowadays with the money. There’s a lot of players you can buy, so you can just get experienced players you know can do a job, who might not be as good as the young players coming through but it’s less of a risk.’
