Kane in with chance of playing again just A MONTH after latest ankle injury

Date Posted,March 28, 2017

Harry Kane is set to hand Tottenham a massive boost by returning early from injury.

England striker Kane has a chance of playing a part in the Premier League home game against Bournemouth on April 15 — which comes a week before an FA Cup semi-final showdown with Chelsea.

Spurs are understood not to be ruling anything out in relation to his return.

Kane, scorer of 24 goals in all competitions this season, damaged ankle ligaments in the FA Cup quarter-final win over Millwall on March 12.

Initial fears suggested he could be out for all but the last few games of the campaign.

The injury was later found, however, to be not as “severe” as a similar setback last September, which kept Kane out for seven weeks.

Should he return in time for the Bournemouth game, it would give Mauricio Pochettino’s squad a huge lift.

The Argentine saw his men beat Southampton without their main goal threat before the international break, but they face tough trips to Burnley — the Clarets have won 29 of their 32 points at Turf Moor — this weekend and relegation-candidates Swansea on Wednesday night.
