Harry Kane has turned up ‘safe and sound’ in Giorgio Chiellini’s back pocket, Paddy Power News can reveal.
The England striker failed to report to Tottenham training as expected on Monday morning which led to speculation regarding his whereabouts.
However, Italian defender Chiellini put an end to mystery when he posted an image of the 28-year-old striker comfortably nestling in his back pocket on Instagram.
“You can all stop looking now. Harry’s been here since 11th July,” the 36-year-old told his 4.7 million followers.

It’s understood Kane is keen to leave Tottenham this summer with Manchester City his most likely destination.
But now it appears any move hinges upon how much longer the forward intends to spend in Chiellini’s pocket.
“Sooner or later he’s gonna have to come out of there,” new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo said.
“I’ll admit it looks cosy but realistically Mr Levy isn’t going to pay Harry £200,000-per-week to stay in Giorgio’s pocket.”
Asked if he was angry with Kane for his refusal to report for training, the Portuguese added: “No, Harry hasn’t turned up for Tottenham lots of times. The Champions League final against Liverpool being a prime example.”

Meanwhile, Paddy Power News understands the Premier League have acquired the services of hot-shot lawyer Lionel Hutz to lead their investigation into Manchester City’s alleged FFP breach.
Despite Pep Guardiola’s tearful claims that City had no money to replace Sergio Aguero, the Citizens appear to have scraped together £250 million to land both Kane and his England colleague Jack Grealish.
“I watched some repetitive sports news channel in a bar last night. The sound wasn’t on but I think I got the gist of it’, Hutz told PPN.
“I dunno about a two-year transfer ban but I’m pretty confident we can secure a £100 fine.
“Here’s my card. It turns into a sponge when you put it in water.”
