Harry Kane only sees positive progress from his 2012-13 campaign - and he can cap it all off at the Under-20s World Cup.

Kane's gains

The young striker - still only 19 - impressed in pre-season and kicked-off the season by making his Premier League debut for us as a substitute at Newcastle before joining Norwich City on loan.

Unfortunately, injury restricted him to just five appearances for the Norfolk club but he was soon out on loan again, this time at Leicester City, scrapping for promotion in the Championship.

He played 15 times for the Foxes, scoring twice, and experienced the highs of making it into the play-offs on the final day before the lows of losing out in the semi-finals against Watford.

Now he's in Turkey preparing for the FIFA Under-20s World Cup with England.

"It was a positive season for me, I feel I progressed again, played in the Premier League at 19, played for a top Championship club at 19 and the season is another a stepping stone for me," said Harry.

"Yes, there were ups and downs along the way, the injury at Norwich was unfortunate, but you have to get on with it.

"I managed to get a few Premier League games under my belt, played at the top end of the Championship and it's all been a great experience for me.

"It's a season I'll learn from and look to move forward again next season."

Harry is with team-mate Alex Pritchard and our Senior Professional Phase Coach Chris Ramsey - assistant to U20s boss Peter Taylor - in Turkey.

The tournament begins on Friday with the Young Lions' first match against Iraq on Sunday, June 23.

Look out for more from the Spurs contingent in the build-up to the Under-20s World Cup next week...
