Harry Kane: Tottenham confirm England striker has suffered a ‘significant’ ankle ligament injury

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane has suffered a ‘significant lateral ligament injury’ to his left ankle, the Premier League side have confirmed.

Both club and country have been sweating over the striker’s fitness ever since he was withdrawn in the second half of Tottenham’s Champions League win over Manchester City on Tuesday.

And the news does not appear to be good for the 25-year-old, with his club painting a potentially bleak picture in a statement on Thursday night.

“Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarter-final, first-leg win against Manchester City,” Tottenham said.
