Tottenham star Harry Kane has said that he would support a plan to close the transfer window before the start of the season, stating that it would allow players to get on with the new campaign without worrying about their future, according to the Evening Standard.

All of the major leagues in Europe have kicked off for the new season, however, not every club has their players ready for selection. 

Borussia Dortmund were forced to suspend Ousmane Dembélé when he failed to attend training after it was reported that Barcelona were interested in buying him this summer, while Leeds United striker Chris Wood took to Twitter to say he wouldn't play a part in their trip to Sunderland because of interest from Burnley.

"People have suggested closing it before the start of the season and I think that would be good," Kane said following Spurs' 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday. 

"When the season starts it would be good for everyone to know where they are at and you would get on with the season. At the moment, there are always players going here and there.

"There is a lot of talk for some players and maybe they should be concentrating on the season," he added. "Let’s see what happens in the future but my opinion is that it would be good to end it [the transfer period] when the season starts.

"At most clubs, everyone waits until the last minute to see who they can get and who is the best deal and it is understandable. Why wouldn’t you do that? It should probably not be open now, though.

"We will see what happens in the next couple of weeks. The manager will decide who he wants and we will go from there."

There is still a lot of uncertainty around the future of a number of high-profile players in Europe. Tottenham's rivals Arsenal risk losing Alexis Sánchez before the transfer window closes, while Paris Saint-Germain could lose a number of players to offset the cost of bringing Neymar to the club for a world record fee.
