In a doom-mongering speech last month, Mr Khan claimed a hard Brexit "could tear Britain apart".
He said: "Securing privileged access to the single market must be the top priority for the negotiations.
"It's critical for London. Nothing else will do. It can't be brushed aside."
The Mayor added: "A hard Brexit would cut Europe off from its only truly global financial center.
"This would be bad news for Europe as well as Britain. So a hard Brexit really would be a lose-lose situation.
"But I'm confident that despite the Prime Minister's rhetoric, there is still a sensible deal to be done."
