Harry Kane has revealed he will not simply stay at Tottenham for the sake of it.
The England captain admitted he would consider his Spurs future if the north London club stopped progressing.
The 26-year-old still wants to win trophies at Tottenham, but the Lilywhites have slipped to eighth in the suspended Premier League and remain without silverware since lifting the 2008 League Cup.

Kanes current Spurs deal runs until 2024, and he has previously suggested he could stay with his boyhood club for his entire career.
Obviously I get asked this question a lot, said Kane, in an Instagram Live chat with Jamie Redknapp.
Its one of those things I couldnt say yes and I couldnt say no.
I love Spurs, Ill always love Spurs but Ive always said if I dont feel were progressing as a team or going in the right direction, Im not someone to stay there for the sake of it.
Im an ambitious player, I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players.
It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team.
So its not a definite Im going to stay there forever, but its not a no either.
Tottenham reached the final of last terms Champions League only to slip to defeat at the hands of Liverpool.
Well-regarded boss Mauricio Pochettino was sacked in November, to be replaced by Jose Mourinho.
And despite Spurs continuing to stutter since that switch, Kane revealed his respect for the honest Portuguese boss.
We have got a fantastic team, but for one reason or another we havent been able to get those trophies, that you look from the outside and think weve got the team to get, said Kane.
Its a hard thing to take as a player. I want to win everything we do.
So when we get close its hard to take and it starts to build up. But from my point of view all you can do is do the best you can, give your best to win every game and win trophies.

For one reason or another we havent quite got there yet. If we do finish the season weve got to try to get back into the Champions League spots.
And next year would be the first chance for the gaffer to have a pre-season, and bed his values into the team. So well see what happens.
Of course I want to win trophies, and to do that sooner rather than later.
Asked about working with Mourinho, Kane continued: Its been good. What you see is what you get. Hes an honest guy.
If he likes you, hell tell you; if he doesnt like you, hell tell you.
From my point of view Ive built a good relationship with him.

Its great to work under a manager like Jose. Growing up watching Premier Leagues he was a big part of that.
So its another opportunity for me to work with one of the best managers in the world. So Im excited to see how that relationship unfolds, and I know hes excited to put his stamp on the team.
From a players point of view we know weve got a top, top manager, so its up to us to go out and perform.
Kane has not played since rupturing a hamstring tendon on January 1, but confirmed he should be ready for action as and when the Premier League returns.
Englands top-flight is currently suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He added: Things are going great, I was doing my rehab well at Spurs up until last week, so Ill just continue that at home.
Whenever we go back I should be ready to integrate with the group. But Ill just see how I feel; theres no rush, no panic and Im in a good place.
