Tottenham have recalled Harry Kane from his Norwich City loan.
Putting two and two together, it could very well be to add the 19 year old to our squad, at least until Adebayor returns and Jermain Defoe recovers from his injury, However there is a possibility that Spurs don't feel that Kane will get quite the same opportunities at Carrow Road for the remainder of the season, after Norwich brought in Luciano Becchio from Leeds and Kai Kamara on loan from Sporting Kansas City. Both are experienced campaigners and may well be seen as more likely starters over the developing Kane.
Kane of course was highly unlucky to break his foot early in the season, but has returned and looked bright, but has failed to score in his six league and cup appearances. That of course doesn't make him a poor player or even one that isn't yet ready to play Premiership football, but although his return may well offer a short term solution to our lack of attacking numbers, I do part expect to see him loaned out once we aren't so short on strikers, with perhaps a Championship return a likely option. There is a brief period from next week where non Premiership clubs can bring players in on loan and I could see Spurs happily allowing Harry to gain greater experience, once Adebayor has returned. Millwall who are currently short of strikers, may well be very happy to have Kane back after his highly successful spell there last season.
Should Villas-Boas be looking to bring Kane straight back into first team contention, it doesn't spell good news for Jon Obika I would imagine. At 22, he is at an age where he needs to be playing and the fact that allowing him to play in the Premiership, he would have to be registered in the clubs twenty-five man squad, could make his selection all the harder. Bringing back Kane, who comfortably remains a free Under 21 pick, is far easier, though Spurs may well have room to add Obika, sure to the lack of over twenty-one numbers they currently have.
