Harry Kane has revealed that he is fully fit and will be available to play for Tottenham whenever Premier League action resumes.

The striker required surgery after injuring his hamstring against Southampton on New Years Day and has been out of action since hobbling off the St Mary’s pitch.

With footballing action suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has given the 26-year-old time to regain his fitness.

The UK Government has given the green light for the Premier League campaign to resume next month and players could return to some form of group training from next week (Daily Mail).

Kane has revealed that his rehabilitation was progressing well prior to the lockdown with the extended break having given him the time he needs to return to full fitness.

The England captain is confident that he will be ready to play from the first game whenever the season resumes.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the striker said: “I’m pretty much as good as I can be. I was at a good stage before the lockdown. I was pretty much doing everything except from training with the team.

“Since the lockdown’s happened, I’ve continued doing sessions online with the team, a bit of specific work where I do my own stuff for the hamstring and things like that, but pretty much doing everything else the boys are doing.

“Then obviously the last week or so we’ve been able to go in and do one-on-one training with one member of staff on the pitch. It’s been nice to get out and start touching a ball again.

“Whenever the season does continue, whether it’s next month, or two months, three months, I should be ready to go from the first game.”

If the season does resume next month, it will be the first time Jose has had a fully fit squad to work with since he arrived at the club. He will also have had time to work with the players on the training ground. So we should see considerable improvement from the standard of football we’ve been witnessing since the turn of the year.
