Harry Kane’s contract at Bayern Munich contains a buy-back clause, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly said on Tottenham’s fan forum.
England’s all-time top scorer moved to the Bavarian giants for £100 million this summer and there was no talk of a buy-back clause at the time.
However, Levy revealed the details when speaking at the first Tottenham fans forum in five years.
He answered fan questions in a 90-minute Q&A alongside Ange Postecoglou, Heung-Min Son, women’s team manager Robert Vilahamn and women’s team captain Beth England.
His comment on the buyback clause is quoted by the Evening standardalthough there is no indication of its value.

“There is a buyback clause,” he said, but did not elaborate on the details of the clause.
Kane enjoyed a twenty-year association with the club and was their top scorer for nine consecutive seasons, scoring more goals than anyone else for the side with 280.
He has settled into the life of Bayern Munich well, scoring four goals in five games as the country sits second in the Bundesliga.
Ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United, he said: ‘I will be watching Tottenham for the rest of my life.
‘I’m very happy to see the team playing as they are and to see the fans happy is a great thing. They have a big game coming up (Arsenal on Sunday), so I will definitely see how they fare over the course of the season.”
Fans speculated that Kane could be motivated to return to his beloved London club to try and dislodge Alan Shearer from the top of the Premier League’s all-time top scorers list.
Kane is 47 goals behind the legendary poacher’s long-standing record of 260, a difference that will likely take at least two seasons to make up.
He is still just 30 years old and with many strikers enjoying impressive longevity these days, supporters will be hoping he can enjoy a trophy-filled spell at Bayern before returning to Spurs to take up the challenge.
