Encouraging signs from Hotspur Way this afternoon as Harry Kane was photographed without crutches and his ankle brace today

Harry came off injured in our win at Bournemouth on March 11th before being photgraphed wearing a protective ankle boot and using crutches the following day.

Fortunately our 35 goals hero in was only ruled out for a month in what was a huge boost for the club and England, who go to the World Cup in Russia this summer.

England boss Gareth Southgate put his side through their paces at Hotspur Way today ahead of Tuesday’s friendly with Italy and Kane was photographed speaking with Southgate, minus the crutches and protective boot.

Further encouragement for Spurs was the sight of Kane wearing the club training attire, which could well mean that he is fit enough to participate in some level of exercise, but the lack of crutches and ankle brace perhaps is the biggest sign that he is progressing well.

We face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next Sunday and though it seems unlikely that the striker will be fit, the real priority will be to get him back for the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United at Wembley on April 21st
