KENNY Jackett has revealed that he has handed Millwall’s Young Player of the Year award to Tottenham loanee Harry Kane.

Kane has scored eight goals for the Lions since his January move from White Hart Lane and has quickly become a fans’ favourite with his committed performances.

And boss Jackett has decided to recognise the 18-year-old’s achievements by handing him the annual gong.

“It’s hard to look past Harry,” he told the club’s official site.

“He has fitted in very well at Millwall despite only being here half a season.

“He’s fitted in with the players and the crowd and developed as well.

“I felt he came here as a boy and is a man now – and plays like a man on the pitch. It’s been a good relationship and he deserves the award.”
