Harry Kane 'out until May' with World Cup dream under real threat

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

Both Tottenham and England will be wary of Kane's previous history of ankle injuries.

Kane sustained an ankle ligament problem for the third time in 18 months during Tottenham's 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.

An extended absence for Kane is a major blow for Spurs as the north London club fights to secure a top-four finish and qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Kane, who has scored 35 times for Tottenham this season, would only have a handful of matches remaining this term to prove his fitness to England manager Gareth Southgate.

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.

Given the delay for a diagnosis, it looks highly unlikely that the 35-goal striker will be fit for Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, while his involvement in next week's worldwide break also looks doubtful with England set to face Holland and Italy in friendlies.

Kane got his foot caught under goalkeeper Asmir Begovic after half hour at Bournemouth and had to be taken off. Mauricio Pochettino afterwards admitted it left him anxious.

Kane was pictured with his foot in a brace and using crutches when out in Essex on Monday.
