England and Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has joined BT Sport. The 22-year-old will be a BT Sport Ambassador, starring in adverts for the channels and appearing as a guest on football shows.

Kane shot to fame in March this year, when he scored within 79 seconds of making his England debut. Last season, he scored 31 goals, including 21 in the Premier League.

He was also last season's PFA Young Player of the Year.

He joins fellow BT Sport Ambassadors Gareth Bale, Rio Ferdinand, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jose Mourinho.

"Last season was an incredible one for me and I am hoping to build on that this season for both Spurs and England," Kane said. "I am delighted to become a BT Ambassador and honoured to join the likes of Gareth Bale in the line-up.

"BT Sport is going to be showing an incredible programme of games this year, including 38 games in the Barclays Premier League and all the live European football. I hope Spurs can make it even better by going a long way in the UEFA Europa League."

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, added: "Harry's emergence from Spurs youngster to one of the most prolific and feared strikers in the Barclays Premier League was one of the great stories of last season.

"We are naturally thrilled to be working with Harry and to be associated with his amazing breakthrough. The Spurs fans relate to him as one of their own and we believe he will be an excellent ambassador for BT and that viewers will like his grounded and humble character."

BT Sport will show 38 Premier League games this season, though that's dwarfed by Sky's 116. BT Sport does have the exclusive rights to all Champions League and Europa League matches, however, as well as Europe's first 4K sports channel.
