Kane was born on 28 July 1993, in Walthamstow, London. He studied at Larkswood Primary Academy and later to Chingford Foundation School.

He started for playing his local club named Ridgeway Rovers. He had initially joined the youth academy of Arsenal but was released within one season. Looking back, Arsenal would have regretted this action deeply. He later tried to enter Tottenham Hotspur and made it to the academy on his second try at the age of 11.
His previous coaches have explained that he had this constant desire to keep on improving which has yielded into him being a great player today. He got his first contract with Tottenham when he was 16 years old. He then played for Tottenham’s under-18 team for some time and in 2010 would sign a professional contract.
For the 2010-11 season, Kane was sent on loan to Leyton Orient where he scored five goals in the 18 matches that he got an opportunity to play in. He got his first taste of playing for Tottenham professionally during their UEFA Europa League match against a club named Hearts.
Shortly after this opportunity, he started playing for Milwall on load. He had a good time there helping immensely in the 27 matches he played in by scoring 9 goals winning him the title of Millwall’s Young Player of the Year for 2011-12.
The next season, Kane became a part of Norwich City on another loan move. However, in his second appearance for the club, he got injured badly and was hence recalled by Tottenham. He then played for Leicester City for the remainder of the season where he got to appear 13 times on the field.
Kane signed a new deal with Tottenham in 2015 on a five and a half year contract. The 2013/14 season was a very important season for his career as he proved his potential at Tottenham that season scoring goal after goal. Because of his habit of scoring goals, he had started to get the name of “Hurricane”. He was voted as the PFA Young Player of the Year as well as included in the PFA Team of the Year.
He had a great season the next year as well proving that he had consistent form, a sign of a great player. Eventually, he also won the Premier League Golden Boot. That year, Tottenham played great and with Kane’s help, they managed to finish third overall. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the second consecutive season.
He continued his form the next season as well by achieving the sensational feat of scoring more than 20 goals for three consecutive seasons. The hard work that he had put in started to pay handsomely and he became the star of Tottenham.
On 20 April, 2018 Kane was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the third consecutive season. Harry Kane finished as the top scorer of the Premier League on 29 goals, and thus won his second consecutive Golden Boot, becoming only the fifth player to do so.
