Harry Kane has expressed delight at receiving his Premier League debut for Tottenham on Saturday, with the 19 year old glad to get onto the pitch in a competitive match for the first time at the club.

Kane was only able to feature for five minutes as Spurs desperately looked for a goal to even the scoreline, and after spending a successful loan spell at Millwall he looks to be a star fo the future for the side.

After coming on for Sandro, Kane says it was a proud day and one that he hopes to repeat for Tottenham many times this season.

"As a kid you grow up wanting to play in the Premier League and I got my five minutes at the end at Newcastle on Saturday," he told the Tottenham website.

"It's a proud moment for me and my family, and hopefully it's just the start with many more to come, and plenty of goals.

Europa League matches last season helped prepare Harry Kane for the Premier League with Tottenham.

"The Premier League is the next progression. I played Europa League last season and now I want to play in the Premier League. I did well in pre-season and it was great to get on."

Tottenham will be hoping that the forward can develop into a strong player for the club in the long term, with a current limited group of strikers to rely on.

Until last night, Jermain Defoe was their only senior choice, with Emmanuel Adebayor finally joining the fold again after a success loan stint last season.

Spurs will no doubt be in the market for another frontman before deadline day hits next week, and Kane still has a lot to learn before he can be counted on by Andre Villas-Boas week in and out.
