Millwall winger James Henry has heaped praise on young on-loan striker Harry Kane after a string of stunning performances.

The 18-year-old has netted six times in his last eleven games, helping the Lions steer clear of the relegation battle since joining on loan from Tottenham in January.

The England under-19 international is highly-rated back at White Hart Lane after scoring his first goal for the club during their Europa League campaign earlier this season.

Henry, who provided the assist for Kane's opening strike in Saturday's 2-1 win over Leicester, told Sky Sports that the youngster has all the attributes to impress in the Premier League one day.

"Harry has fantastic and you can tell that he is a very talented boy that will go on to play in the Premier League one day.

"He has got a lot of talent and he has been a huge boost for us since coming here in January, but then so has Andy Keogh since he signed and Darius Henderson all season.

"We've been scoring goals lately and when that is happening everyone is happy."

The Lions have cemented their place in the Championship next season after stringing together three consecutive victories, but with three games remaining the former Reading playmaker insists that there is plenty left to play for.

"We want to test ourselves and facing sides like Leicester and Ipswich will give us a good benchmark to where we are at when looking to build for next season.

"Leicester will be there or thereabouts next season, so it was a good test for the whole team.

"We all want to do as well as we can during the final stages of the season so that we can start building for next season.

"We don't want to be in another relegation battle next season and hopefully we can aim for a top ten finish.

"Before Saturday we knew that we probably needed one more win to secure our Championship status, but we won't be taking our foot off the gas now by any means."
