Kane’s new deal will run until 2022 and extends his stay at White Hart Lane by a further two years.
Spurs had never considered selling their talisman but uncertainty over negotiations had led to unwelcome speculation about his future.
Kane, however, remains committed to the club he first joined as an 11-year-old and Pochettino believes he could stay at Tottenham for the rest of his career.
