Harry Kane has confirmed he is leaving Tottenham Hotspur ahead of joining Bayern Munich.
The Bundesliga club agreed a deal for the England captain, 30, after Spurs accepted an offer worth more than €100million (£86.4m, $110m) on Thursday.
The Athletic reported on Friday that Kane had received approval from Spurs to join Bayern before flying to Germany to undergo a medical and complete the transfer.
He has signed a four-year contract and will wear the No 9 shirt.
Kane confirmed his exit with an emotional message to Spurs supporters on social media.
“I wanted to be the first to tell you Tottenham fans that I will be leaving the club today,” he said.
“Obviously a lot of emotions going through me right now. Sad to be leaving the club I’ve spent nearly 20 years of my life at from an 11-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man now.
“There’s been so many great moments and special memories. Memories that I will cherish forever. This is a thank you to all of my team-mates over the years, all my coaches, all the managers, every single staff member from the kit men to the chefs, everyone involved.
“Obviously I’ve built special relationships with a lot of people. Most importantly thank you to you the Tottenham fans. From the moment I played I have been one of your own and I have given everything I possibly could to make you proud.”

Kane had been leaning towards staying at his boyhood club, as he was enjoying life under new manager Ange Postecoglou. But ultimately the promise of a new challenge at Bayern proved too strong.
Kane leaves Spurs as their all-time top scorer having scored 280 goals in 435 appearances.
The striker was into the final 12 months of his contract and Tottenham wanted to tie him to fresh terms.
However, no progress was made over a new deal, which led Spurs to make the decision to sell their talisman this summer as opposed to losing him on a free next summer.
Bayern had seen three bids for Kane rejected, with the first made in June, before making a breakthrough on Wednesday.
