TOTTENHAM striker Harry Kane is reportedly open to penning a new deal in North London – but only if the contract includes a buyout clause.
SunSport revealed last month how Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were preparing to offer the England skipper a £100,000-a-week pay rise.
It is understood that the club fear Kane could try to force through a switch in January or at the end of the season.
According to Eurosport, the Citizens aren’t looking to bring the ex-Leyton Orient to the Etihad in 2022.
And this could see Kane commit his future to Tottenham, where he is already tied to until 2024.
However it has been said that Kane will only agree fresh terms if chairman Daniel Levy inserts a release clause in his contract – something he refuses to do.
But the three-time Premier League Golden Boot winner is hoping Levy makes an exception for him.

The news outlet also stated how the two parties will discuss a new contract in the coming weeks and months in case an agreement can be found.
Kane is yet to contribute a goal or assist in the Premier League this season from his three outings.
In Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, the centre-forward failed to register a shot on goal or touch the ball in the opposition box for the first time in his top-flight career where he completed the full game.
Speaking after the clash at Selhurst Park, former Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor claimed that Kane looked disinterested during the match.
He told talkSPORT: “Harry Kane looked a bit fed up. I am a big believer of body language.
“I am looking at him. He looked very fed up. He probably thinks to himself, ‘I just wish that move had gone through’.”
