Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed that he hopes to be back in action between the start and middle of April.
The 26-year-old has been out of action since he tore his left hamstring during the second half of the 1-0 defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day.
The injury saw Kane have to undergo surgery with the club revealing in January that they expected the prolific forward to return to training in April (Spurs official).
Kane’s prognosis will certainly put him at least a month ahead of schedule whilst admitting that only a serious setback would see him not be able to lead out England at Euro 2020 this summer.
If Spurs are able to overturn their 1-0 deficit against RB Leipzig in the second leg of their Champions League tie, they would book their place in the quarter final of the competition which will be held over two legs across April 7-8 and 14-15.
Fans will certainly be hoping that Kane is fit and ready to take on Arsenal in the first North London derby at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on April 26.
“Unless something pretty drastic happens between now and then, I’ll be there. I’m still not back training with the first team, but I’m working hard in the gym, I’m getting stronger all the time.
“We’re talking a few more weeks, and I’ll be playing again. I don’t want to make a prediction for which game I might be back, but I am hoping somewhere between the start and the middle of April.”
