Tottenham striker Kane dreams of future NFL kicker role

Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he "would love to go the NFL and be a kicker" once his soccer career is over.

After plundering 31 goals in a remarkable breakthrough season at White Hart Lane, Kane has failed to score in the first four games of the new campaign.

He's not planning a career change just yet, but the England international has revealed his desire to one day play in the NFL.

"It depends on how my football career goes but, when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker," the 22-year-old told The Sun. "Even if I got to play just one game it is something I would like to do.

"It's a long way off yet. But it is definitely something I have thought about.

Back in July, Tottenham struck a deal with the NFL to host fixtures in their planned new stadium from 2018.

Kane added: "We've had NFL teams come to Spurs and I can kick the ball as high and as far as them, but not on a consistent basis so I would need a bit of practice first."
