Tottenham striker Harry Kane reportedly ruled out until May with ankle injury

Tottenham striker Harry Kane reportedly ruled out until May with ankle injury

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.

The Egyptian star has matched Harry Kane step-for-step in the race for the Golden Boot, but the odds have tipped in his favour due to the Tottenham star's injury.

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.

If a scan confirms ligament damage as expected, with around six weeks out a possible timescale, England's hierarchy do not want any risks taken that could impact his chances at the World Cup this summer.

Southgate is set to name his next England squad for the friendlies against Holland and Italy at 2pm on Thursday.

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

As it stands, Kane would miss Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, a semi-final if they progress and four league fixtures after the worldwide break - a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

Mauricio Pochettino may have been handed a tactical dilemma for big Premier League matches against Chelsea and Manchester City amongst others: How do we find finish without Harry Kane?

Kane tried to play on, but was forced to come off and left the ground on crutches.
