- Kane scored his first professional goal for Leyton Orient and has stepped in to help them out.
- He has sponsored their new shirts in an attempt to steady their weak financial condition.
- This unique sponsorship deal has been deemed "the first of its kind".
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has emerged as a knight in shining armour for his former club Leyton Orient, reports The Telegraph.
The Englishman, who has been linked with joining Manchester United, acquired approval from the Premier League, the Football Association and the EFL before going ahead with the initiative. Indeed, this is a first of its kind approach by a player.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has affected economies across the world and football clubs - especially smaller ones - have been hit hard.
Orient's new home shirt will have text on the front that thanks the frontline workers and will also raise money for the local NHS trust. The second and third shirts, meanwhile, will provide funds for Haven House and Mind charities respectively.
Additionally, 10 per cent of each shirt sale will be donated to these charities.
The report adds that financial details have not been divulged but normally, shirt deals in the League Two range between £50,000 and £100,000 approximately.
Kane has been a prolific performer in the Premier League and has been linked with joining United as well.
