Newcastle tipped to seal £150m Harry Kane transfer and outbid Chelsea and Man City after £300m Saudi takeover

NEWCASTLE have been tipped to outbid Chelsea and Manchester City to sign £150million Tottenham star Harry Kane.

The England captain, 28, revealed he finally wanted to quit Spurs in the summer in a desperate bid to win some silverware.

The North Londoners eventually slapped a £150m price-tag on Kane's head.

But with Man City splashing out £100m on Kane's England pal Jack Grealish and Chelsea forking out £97.5m on Romelu Lukaku, Kane was eventually left with nowhere to go.

Newcastle have been linked with a host of big names since their £300m, Saudi-backed takeover last week – including FOUR Manchester United outcasts and FIVE Serie A stars, among many others.

And, according to ex-Toon star Darren Ambrose, they could take the lead in the race to sign Kane.

Ambrose told talkSPORT: "What about Harry Kane?

"Now I say this because, are Manchester City or Chelsea going to be paying £100m-£120m in the summer.

"I don't think they are. I think [City] went to around £130m this summer, so Newcastle will.

"They will go £150m-£200m."

It's claimed Newcastle can spend up to £200m in January without being in breach of FFP rules.

However, it's expected – once the new owners hire a new manager, with Frank Lampard in the running – they will have a transfer kitty of closer to £30m.

But Ambrose argued: "Say Daniel Levy puts on another ridiculously high transfer fee that nobody else is going to pay and Newcastle say, 'OK, there's £150m'.

"Who's got more chance of winning a trophy at the moment? Tottenham or Newcastle right now?

"Everyone is going to say [Newcastle] now because they're a project and they've got ambition."
