Harry Kane is set to be on the sidelines until May and could struggle to make the World Cup, according to reports.

Kane damaged his ankle ligaments for the third time in 18 months against Bournemouth at the weekend and was seen leaving the ground on crutches.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been ruled out of action until May with the ankle injury he picked up against Bournemouth and faces a race to be fit for the World Cup later this year.

This time, Spurs have three weeks until they play their next Premier League match, meaning that he'll without question miss this Sunday's FA Cup quarterfinal against Swansea, as well as England's friendlies during the global break.


Based on the initial diagnosis, Kane may be ready to return in time for Spurs' final three scheduled league games - against Watford on the last day of April, West Brom and Leicester.

A Tottenham source revealed the injury is as serious as the one that kept him out for seven weeks from September 2016.

Spurs have a league clash against Newcastle to reschedule, while their trip to Brighton on Friday April 20 would also get postponed if they reach the FA Cup's last four.

Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's worldwide friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece. The Guardian is reporting that Kane has yet to even have a scan on his ankle as the swelling has not yet gone down, and that no prognosis will be made until that happens.
