HARRY KANE has bid an emotional farewell to long-serving Tottenham team-mates Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm.
The Spurs veterans were pictured in their club shirts for the last time after the North Londoners drew away at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Harry Kane and his Spurs teammates bid farewell to Spurs veterans Jan Vertonghen and Michael Vorm. The pair are due to leave the North London side this summer
England striker Kane paid a warm-hearted tribute by sharing a dressing room picture of the pair on social media surrounded by their colleagues.
In his Twitter post, Kane wrote: “Wish nothing but the best for @JanVertonghen and @Vorm_Official with whatever is next for them.
“Been a pleasure sharing a dressing room and playing with them both.
Vertonghen, who’s made 232 Premier League appearances for the club, has been linked with a summer move away from Spurs throughout this season.
The experienced centre-back signed for Tottenham in £8million move from Dutch giants Ajax in 2012.
And the Belgian international, 33, is rumoured to be a surprise free transfer target for Prem title runners-up Manchester City.
City boss Pep Guardiola is believed to be planning an overhaul of his squad following the overturn of their Champion’s League ban.
Other European sides reportedly interested in landing the Belgium international include Serie A rivals Inter Milan and Roma.

Like Vertonghen, Michel Vorm signed a short-term contract extension keeping him at the club until the end of 2019-20 season.
And the Dutch international is now a free agent having fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham with Hugo Lloris firmly established as the club’s no.1 stopper.
Vorm was reportedly close to joining Liverpool earlier this season following an injury to the Prem Champions’ stopper Alisson.
The Dutch keeper returned to Tottenham last summer for the second time as a back-up for Lloris and Spurs number two stopper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Tottenham, who drew 1-1 against Roy Hodgson’s Palace players on Sunday, finished this term in sixth – two places lower than their finish in 2018-19.
However, the draw on Sunday means Jose Mourinho’s team have qualified for a place in next season’s Europa League competition.
