Tottenham striker Harry Kane reportedly ruled out until May with ankle injury

Tottenham Hotspurs' Harry Kane injured in a past game.

Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday Kane has been ruled out "until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit" for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

Kane got his foot caught under goalkeeper Asmir Begovic after half hour at Bournemouth and had to be taken off. Mauricio Pochettino afterwards admitted it left him anxious.

Harry Kane is out until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit for the World Cup.

The 24-year-old hurt himself during the 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday and was supposed to be sent for a scan on Monday but swelling has continued to cause a delay.

A Tottenham source revealed the injury is as serious as the one that kept him out for seven weeks from September 2016.


That would mean Kane would return for the final few games of Spurs' Premier League season and would have only a few matches to build his fitness ahead of England's World Cup run in Russian Federation this summer.

Official confirmation is still yet to come from Spurs on the period of time that Kane will likely miss but the Daily Mirror claims that he will be ruled out until the end of April.

It was said Kane could be out until the end of April, which would be a major blow to Tottenham's hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four and winning the FA Cup.

Kane will now miss England's friendlies against Holland and Italy this month, with Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate set to name his squad for those games on Thursday.

Kane's history of injuries to his right ankle is a concern.
