DANIEL LEVY will refuse to sell Harry Kane to Chelsea this summer but the Tottenham star must sort his future out as soon as possible, according to Glenn Hoddle.
The England captain, 27, has made it clear he wants to leave Spurs this summer in a desperate bid to finally win some silverware.

Kane has stopped short of handing in an official transfer request, but is expected to join Manchester United, City or Chelsea in a £150million summer move.
Ex-Tottenham star Hoddle reckons there's no way Kane will be allowed to join Chelsea and admitted the saga is likely to be bad news for England.
Hoddle told Betfair: "The key factor in Harry Kane's future is that he has three years left on his contract at Tottenham.
"If he only had a year or two left then I think it would be done and dusted that he'd leave them this summer.
"He could go to Manchester City. What would he achieve there, if he's already Premier League top goalscorer at Tottenham?
"I'd hate to think he'd go to Chelsea but I don't think Daniel Levy will let him go there instead of City or United.
"Kane has been brilliant for Spurs and it really is a sad situation.
"Tottenham only really have themselves to blame for not building on the season when they go to the Champions League final."

Hoddle went on to say Kane will rightly be distracted by the speculation surrounding his future while captaining England at Euro 2020.
The ex-Three Lions boss continued: "He would probably like to have it sorted out before the Euros but I don't think that will happen. That's unfortunate for England.
"You can't say that Kane won't be distracted by his future at the Euros.
"On the pitch, he'll be focused but, in between games in the hotel, it may be a different matter.
"There will be phone calls and other communications about it. It's human nature that Harry will think about his future.
"After the Euros, the new season will be on us before we know it."
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be in talks over a sensational return to Spurs after growing unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain.
But Hoddle reckons Levy will have to eat humble pie to get him back after admitting sacking Poch was the biggest mistake of his career.
Hoddle said: "It hasn't gone very well for Pochettino at PSG.
"[Levy] would need to be a big man to go to Pochettino and say: 'I shouldn't have sacked you.'
"That's the key to it, whether Daniel can do that."
