Tottenham striker Harry Kane is targeting a return to first-team action in April, according to The Sun.
Head Coach Jose Mourinho recently admitted that he feared that the England captain could miss the rest of the season, but Kane looks on course to make a typically early comeback.
Kane hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury in Spurs’ Premier League defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day and has undergone successful surgery after rupturing a tendon in the latter stages at St Mary’s.
The 26-year-old has already provided two encouraging videos on social media of him stretching and running at Tottenham’s Hotspur Way training base and now looks set to be back playing weeks ahead of schedule, despite the club initially reporting that Kane wouldn’t even return to training until mid-April.
If Kane does make an early return, he could feature in the first ever North London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as well as crucial Premier League matches against Sheffield United on 4 April and the visit of Leicester City on the penultimate day of the season.
It’s also a major boost for Gareth Southgate, who’ll be hoping Kane will make it through the rest of the campaign unscathed and is fit enough to start England’s opening EURO 2020 match against Croatia on 14 June.
