England and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has teamed with Vivid to develop a range of football products for 2016.

The line of outdoor toys is scheduled to land at retailers to coincide with the build-up to next year’s UEFA Euro tournament.

Kane has enjoyed a successful season with Tottenham Hotspur in 2014/2015, achieving top goal scorer status at the London club as well as the second top goal scorer in the Barclays Premier League.

“Harry Kane is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in English football with his tenacity to score goals,” said Emma Weber, international licensing director at Vivid.

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with such an iconic football player and we are fast tracking development of the range to ensure we get out into the market while the football season is at one of its most entertaining periods with the build up to the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.”

Kane added: “It’s great to be working with Vivid on a range of outdoor toys which I hope will inspire all my young fans out there to pick up a football and practice their skills.

“I think 2016 is going to be a very exciting year.”
