Kane out for a month

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is expected to return to first-team training in April despite damaging lateral ligaments in his right ankle.

Kane was injured during the first half of Tottenham's 4-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday and there were fears that he would be sidelined for several weeks.

A scan to assess the damage had to be delayed due to swelling but preliminary results have delivered good news with Kane set for just a month on the sidelines.

Preliminary assessments have confirmed that Harry Kane has damaged lateral ligaments in his right ankle.

"Preliminary assessments have confirmed that Harry Kane has damaged lateral ligaments in his right ankle," a statement from the club read.

"The England striker sustained the injury following a challenge in our 4-1 win against Bournemouth on Sunday and is expected to return to First Team training next month."
