Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has urged the club to place their trust in their academy graduates trying breaking into the first team.

The 20-year-old striker has been on the periphery of the Spurs first team for a number of years having had four spells on loan away from the club but has been handed a greater role in Tm Sherwood's side in recent weeks.

Kane scored his second Premier League goal in the 3-3 draw with West Brom – following up on his strike against Sunderland - to mark his arrival in a season which has also seen Andros Townsend and Nabil Bentaleb command first team roles.

Given his impact, the striker believes he earned his place at White Hart Lane.

"I feel I'm good enough to be here and good enough to play for Spurs in the Premier League," Kane told the Evening Standard.

"I hope I've shown that in the last two games and I'm looking forward to the next one."

The last 12 months have seen dramatic upheaval at White Hart Lane after Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid prompted a spending spree that exceeded £100m. As new players came in, the club's academy products Tom Carroll and Jake Livermore left on season long loan deals while Steven Caulker opted to try his luck elsewhere and joined Cardiff City on a permanent deal.

With more changes expected this summer, Kane has urged the club to keep their faith in the starlets emerging from the Tottenham academy and stick to home grown talent rather than making more wholesale changes.

"We have a great crop of youngsters coming through at the minute and it's good that we're being used," Kane continued.

"It's important for English football and club football to be getting a chance at the top level and I feel every time we've had a chance, we've done well.

"The fans like big signings and new players coming in but there are home-grown players who have been there for years who wear the shirt with pride and want to prove themselves. It's good competition.

"We have the potential and it's good that we've had the opportunity at such a young age. We've all got the ability to push on and make a statement in this team.

"Each of us knows how the others play because many of us have played together for a long time. We know each other's movement and it's important to have that in a team, to know people's game inside out."
