On Sunday, in a live Q&A interview with Sportsmail & # 39; s Jamie Redknapp on Instagram, Kane was asked a series of questions about his time in football so far and where it all started for him.
The 26-year-old – now one of the club's most prolific strikers in history – revealed how Tottenham initially warded him off as a youngster before proving he had what it took.
Harry Kane reveals how he was initially rejected by Spurs convince them to convince
& # 39; I went to the Arsenal Academy when I was six or seven. That was my first taste, & # 39; Kane told Redknapp.
& # 39; I was there for two years and then (Arsenal) released me. I went back to playing for Ridgeway Rovers, my Sunday League club, and Tottenham picked me up when I was 11.
& # 39; It was a six week trial and they said they wouldn't sign me. I went to Watford on a trial and we played Tottenham in a game.
& # 39; I scored a hat trick and that evening the head of the academy called my dad and said they wanted to sign me.
& # 39; It was a tough decision, but I think I made the right choice in the end. I wasn't the best player on that team, I wasn't physically strong. When I was 15, I really started to develop, and when I was 16, 17 years old, I started training with the first team and went from there. & # 39;
It is known that Kane initially struggled in his earlier years at Tottenham.
The attacker made the leap to Spurs' senior squad in 2009 before being loaned out four times – a rather unsuccessful period in his career.
Time spent on absence on loan at Leicester, Norwich, Leyton Orient and Millwall gave him that iron determination that made him break goal records for Tottenham.
The skipper from England is currently recovering from a hamstring problem while trapped under government instructions to stay indoors during the coronavirus outbreak.

While the coronavirus pandemic is sweeping the world, major sporting events are either
But while European leagues are currently closed, the A-League continues in Australia – but played behind closed doors.

& # 39; It was more of a panic. As soon as you make the mistake, your heart starts to beat.
& # 39; At first I thought there was a chance, but I suppose you just go ahead and go back and do what you can.
& # 39; Luckily (Harrison Delbridge) was also on the line so when he tracked him down, it gave us the opportunity to clean it up. & # 39;
The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with Tate Russell putting Western Sydney Wanderers ahead before Jamie Maclaren took the penalty with a penalty for Melbourne City.
