Tottenham Hotspur has received a timely boost with the news that striker Harry Kane will be available for selection when the Premier League returns.
Kane had an operation after picking an injury in the club’s New Year Day against Southampton but according to the striker he was expecting to return to full training in April.
Speaking to the Spurs website, Kane said: “From a rehab point of view and personal point of view, I’m doing really well. I’m at a good stage now and just working hard, doing a lot of recoveries, a lot of rehabs and just waiting to see what happens to the season.
“I’m not too far away, I’d normally hope to be back with the team in two or three weeks’ time. I’m at a good stage, pretty much-doing everything, now it’s about building up my fitness. So from my personal point of view, I’m in a good place.”
The news is a boost for Spurs boss Jose Mourinho whose team had slipped to eighth in the absence of the striker with the England captain having notched 17 this season.
Spurs re four points behind fifth-placed Manchester United, whom they were due to play before the coronavirus led to the Premier League being suspended with nine games remaining.
