Kane to miss Tottenham's Europa Conference League match amid transfer saga  

Kane said he has "never refused to train", but the 28-year-old believes he has a gentleman's agreement with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to leave this summer.

However, City is so far unwilling to meet Levy's £150 million ($204 million) asking price for last season's Premier League top scorer.

Kane was left out of Tottenham's squad when it beat City in its Premier League opener last weekend and also missed Thursday's Europa Conference League defeat at Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira.

"Harry is in the squad. The team is the same because we did a good job last weekend. The boys are ready," Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo said before kick-off at Molineux.
