Harry Kane has been ruled out until March with an ankle injury according to Sky Sports News.
The England captain was seen limping off the pitch after the game against Manchester United on Sunday after contesting a loose ball with Phil Jones towards the end of the game.
Tottenham manager Pochettino said after the match that losing Kane at such an important time in the season will be a massive blow for the club, and it looks like the Argentine’s and Tottenham fans’ worst fears have come true.
Scans have revealed that the striker has damaged ligaments in his left ankle. This will see Kane miss the second leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal against Chelsea and likely both of Tottenham’s Champions League round of 16 ties against Dortmund.
This occurs at a time when the striker was going through a real purple patch, looking extremely threatening in the last few games, after having a slow start to the season by his high standards.
Additionally, with Son Heung-Min away at International duty and Fernando Llorente linked with a move away from the club, Tottenham could find themselves without any strikers for the next few games.
Tottenham fans will be hoping this news tempts Levy into bringing a striker into the club this January.
