Harry Kane 'ruled out until May'

"The north Londoners believe the injury is closer in seriousness to the first time he suffered the setback and missed seven weeks from September 2016, than the last one when he was out for just over three", reads the report in the Mirror.

Harry Kane's 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign could be in jeopardy after the Tottenham Hotspur striker suffered an ankle ligament injury during a 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.

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.

This is the last news fans of Tottenham or England wanted to hear, for it not only damages Spurs' chances of silverware but leaves the 24-year-old fighting a battle to be fully fit for England's summer of World Cup action.

Meanwhile, the report claims that he will miss four Premier League fixtures, Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final clash against Swansea and the semi-final if they beat Carlos Carvalhal's outfit.

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

Kane will also have to sit out England's two friendlies this month against Holland and Italy, with manager Gareth Southgate naming his squad on Thursday.
