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

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

That's according to The Mirror, who claim that Harry Kane will be out until May and faces a desperate battle to be fit for the World Cup as a result.

Tottenham's Premier League leading scorer damaged ankle ligaments for the third time in 18 months in Sunday's 4-1 win at Bournemouth.

The Spurs goal machine missed seven weeks from the same injury in September 2016 and a month again earlier this season, and their medical team believe this incident is similar to the former in severity.

"In a major blow for club and country, Kane's anticipated lay-off would see him ruled out until the end of April and have just a handful of games left at the end of the season to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation".

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.

Kane is definitely ruled out of Tottenham's FA Cup clash with Swansea on Saturday.

He will then miss the semi-finals if they win and four league fixtures after the global break, a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's global friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece.
